**Publisher**: Benjamin-Cummings Publishing Co. 1980**ISBN/ASIN**: 0805304525**ISBN-13**: 9780805304527**Number of pages**: 139

**Description**:

The present book is an introduction to molecular electronic structural theory. It is aimed at students who have reasonable familiarity with differential and integral calculus and are beginning a study of the physical description of chemical systems. The authors concentrate on the description of ground state electronic structures, or, in other words, the principles of chemical bonding in molecules.
