Ideas of Quantum Chemistry shows how quantum mechanics is applied to chemistry to give it a theoretical foundation. From the Schroedinger equation to electronic and nuclear motion to intermolecular interactions, this book covers the primary quantum underpinnings of chemical systems. The structure of the book (a TREE-form) emphasizes the logical relationships among various topics, facts and methods. It shows the reader which parts of the text are needed for understanding specific aspects of the subject matter. Interspersed throughout the text are short biographies of key scientists and their contributions to the development of the field.
Ideas of Quantum Chemistry has both textbook and reference work aspects. Like a textbook, the material is organized into digestible sections with each chapter following the same structure. It answers frequently asked questions and highlights the most important conclusions and the essential mathematical formulae in the text. In its reference aspects, it has a broader range than traditional quantum chemistry books and reviews virtually all of the pertinent literature. It is useful both for beginners as well as specialists in advanced topics of quantum chemistry. An appendix on the Internet supplements this book.

T-SQL in One Hour a Day, Sams Teach Yourself
Many excellent books about T-SQL are available, so how is this one different? In talking to the many
people I meet in my travels around the country, I have heard one common complaint. Instead of the host of
wonderful books available to expert database administrators (DBAs), most SQL Server readers yearn for
a book targeted toward the...
Satellite Remote Sensing for Archaeology It is my sincere hope that students, professional archaeologists, archaeological researchers and all people fascinated by the potential for satellite remote sensing in archaeology will find this book useful. It is, more than anything else, a product of my thinking back to my graduate student days, and what I wish had existed then to help me get...
