Over the past several decades there have been major advances in our ability to computationally evaluate the electronic structure of inorganic molecules, particularly transition metal systems. This advancement is due to the Moore’s Law increase in computing power as well as the impact of density functional theory (DFT) and its implementation in commercial and freeware programs for quantum chemical calculations. Improved pure and hybrid density functionals are allowing DFT calculations with accuracy comparable to high-level Hartree-Fock treatments, and the results of these calculations can now be evaluated by experiment. When calculations are correlated to, and supported by, experimental data they can provide fundamental insight into electronic structure and its contributions to physical properties and chemical reactivity. This interplay continues to expand and contributes to both improved value of experimental results and improved accuracy of computational predictions. The purpose of this EIC Book is to provide state-of-the-art presentations of quantum mechanical and related methods and their applications, written by many of the leaders in the field. Part 1 of this volume focuses on methods, their background and implementation, and their use in describing bonding properties, energies, transition states and spectroscopic features. Part 2 focuses on applications in bioinorganic chemistry and Part 3 discusses inorganic chemistry, where electronic structure calculations have already had a major impact. This addition to the EIC Book series is of significant value to both experimentalists and theoreticians, and we anticipate that it will stimulate both further development of the methodology and its applications in the many interdisciplinary fields that comprise modern inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. This volume is also available as part of Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry, 5 Volume Set. This set combines all volumes published as EIC Books from 2007 to 2010, representing areas of key developments in the field of inorganic chemistry published in the Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry.

Symmetrie und Struktur

Eine Einführung in die Gruppentheorie

Author: N.A

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 393

View: 5961

Es ist behauptet worden, Gruppentheorie sei kaum mehr als angewandter gesun der Menschenverstand. Wenn dem so ist, sollte es möglich sein, sie so darzustel len, daß der explizite Gebrauch von formaler Mathematik und vor allem von Matrizenalgebra vermieden wird. Matrizenalgebra ist kein schwieriges Thema; viele Studenten werden ihr vor dem Studium begegnet sein. Daher mag es sinnlos erscheinen, ein weiteres Buch zu schreiben, nur um die Verwendung von Matri zenalgebra zu umgehen. Dennoch ist dies ein solches Buch; der Grund für seine Existenz liegt tiefer. Nach meiner Erfahrung denken Chemiker lieber in Model len und Bildern als in mathematischen Begriffen; sie finden es leichter, ein Modell mathematisch zu beschreiben, als mit einer mathematischen Herleitung zu beginnen und daraus ein Bild zu gewinnen. Zum vollen Verständnis der Gruppentheorie benötigt man sowohl das Bild als auch die Mathematik; daher werden üblicherweise beide gemeinsam behandelt. Die Gruppentheorie ist al lerdings ein systematisch aufgebautes Gebiet - jede Stufe hängt von den vor hergehenden Stufen ab, so daß man sich in einem Lehrbuch ständig auf frühere Seiten beziehen muß. Da die mathematische Behandlung genauer und umfas sender ist als die bildhafte Beschreibung, wird dabei am ehesten auf vorausge gangene mathematische Abschnitte verwiesen. Nach meiner Erfahrung wird das physikalische Bild für die meisten Studenten zunehmend verschwommener, je mehr die Mathematik die Oberhand gewinnt. Dies ist der Grund für den Aufbau des vorliegenden Buchs.
