Introduction to Computational Chemistry

Author: Frank Jensen
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470058046
Release Date: 2007-01-11
Genre: Science

Introduction to Computational Chemistry, Second Edition provides a comprehensive account of the fundamental principles underlying different methods, ranging from classical to the sophisticated. Although comprehensive in its coverage, this textbook focuses on calculating molecular structures and (relative) energies and less on molecular properties or dynamical aspects. No prior knowledge of concepts specific to computational chemistry are assumed, but the reader will need some understanding of introductory quantum mechanics, linear algebra, and vector, differential and integral calculus.

Introduction to Computational Physical Chemistry

Author: Joshua Schrier
Publisher: University Science Books
ISBN: 1938787900
Release Date: 2017-06-16
Genre: Science

This book will revolutionize the way physical chemistry is taught by bridging the gap between the traditional "solve a bunch of equations for a very simple model" approach and the computational methods that are used to solve research problems. While some recent textbooks include exercises using pre-packaged Hartree-Fock/DFT calculations, this is largely limited to giving students a proverbial black box. The DIY (do-it-yourself) approach taken in this book helps student gain understanding by building their own simulations from scratch. The reader of this book should come away with the ability to apply and adapt these techniques in computational chemistry to his or her own research problems, and have an enhanced ability to critically evaluate other computational results. This book is mainly intended to be used in conjunction with an existing physical chemistry text, but it is also well suited as a stand-alone text for upper level undergraduate or intro graduate computational chemistry courses.

ISBN: 9789048138609
Release Date: 2010-11-10
Genre: Science

This corrected second edition contains new material which includes solvent effects, the treatment of singlet diradicals, and the fundamentals of computaional chemistry. "Computational Chemistry: Introduction to the Theory and Applications of Molecular and Quantum Mechanics" is an invaluable tool for teaching and researchers alike. The book provides an overview of the field, explains the basic underlying theory at a meaningful level that is not beyond beginners, and it gives numerous comparisons of different methods with one another and with experiment. The following concepts are illustrated and their possibilities and limitations are given: - potential energy surfaces; - simple and extended Hueckel methods; - ab initio, AM1 and related semiempirical methods; - density functional theory (DFT). Topics are placed in a historical context, adding interest to them and removing much of their apparently arbitrary aspect. The large number of references, to all significant topics mentioned, should make this book useful not only to undergraduates but also to graduate students and academic and industrial researchers.

ISBN: 0080488536
Release Date: 2002-02-28
Genre: Science

Computational Quantum Chemistry removes much of the mystery of modern computer programs for molecular orbital calculations by showing how to develop Excel spreadsheets to perform model calculations and investigate the properties of basis sets. Using the book together with the CD-ROM provides a unique interactive learning tool. In addition, because of the integration of theory with working examples on the CD-ROM, the reader can apply advanced features available in the spreadsheet to other applications in chemistry, physics, and a variety of disciplines that require the solution of differential equations. This book and CD-ROM makes a valuable companion for instructors, course designers, and students. It is suitable for direct applications in practical courses in theoretical chemistry and atomic physics, as well as for teaching advanced features of Excel in IT courses.

Introduction to Computational Mass Transfer

Author: Kuo-Tsong Yu
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642539114
Release Date: 2014-02-17
Genre: Science

This book presents a new computational methodology called Computational Mass Transfer (CMT). It offers an approach to rigorously simulating the mass, heat and momentum transfer under turbulent flow conditions with the help of two newly published models, namely the C’2—εC’ model and the Reynolds mass flux model, especially with regard to predictions of concentration, temperature and velocity distributions in chemical and related processes. The book will also allow readers to understand the interfacial phenomena accompanying the mass transfer process and methods for modeling the interfacial effect, such as the influences of Marangoni convection and Rayleigh convection. The CMT methodology is demonstrated by means of its applications to typical separation and chemical reaction processes and equipment, including distillation, absorption, adsorption and chemical reactors. Professor Kuo-Tsong Yu is a Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. Xigang Yuan is a Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Tianjin University, China.

The Basics of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry

Author: Bernd Michael Rode
Publisher: Wiley-VCH
ISBN: 3527317732
Release Date: 2007-03-12
Genre: Science

This textbook does away with the classic, unimaginative approach and comes straight to the point with a bare minimum of mathematics -- emphasizing the understanding of concepts rather than presenting endless strings of formulae. It nonetheless covers all important aspects of computational chemistry, such as - vector space theory - quantum mechanics - approximation methods - theoretical models - and computational methods. Throughout the chapters, mathematics are differentiated by necessity for understanding - fundamental formulae, and all the others. All formulae are explained step by step without omission, but the non-vital ones are marked and can be skipped by those who do not relish complex mathematics. The reader will find the text a lucid and innovative introduction to theoretical and computational chemistry, with food for thought given at the end of each chapter in the shape of several questions that help develop understanding of the concepts. What the reader will not find in this book are condescending sentences such as, 'From (formula A) and (formula M) it is obvious that (formula Z).'
