It presumes that the student is familiar with the material in an undergraduate course in quantum mechanics. RicchiutoEuropean Windtunnel Association Snippet view – Yu for their comments and corrections.
Spectra of Atoms and Molecules, 2nd Edition is designed to introduce advanced undergraduates and new graduate students to the vast field of spectroscopy. Physics of Atoms and Ions Boris M.
I am very grateful for the comments and helpful criticism from many people, partic- ularly F.
Rather than assume a previous exposure or try to summarize group theory in a short chapter, I have chosen to provide a more thorough introduction. Even the definition of what constitutes a line can be a source of difficulties.
Smirnov No preview available – Molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are among the topics covered; atomic, rotational, vibrational, electronic and Raman spectra are analyzed.
And if you are first to this field, you will find it is like an moleculrs lecturer’s notes on spectroscopy and probably the best one.
Bernath Spectra of Atoms and Molecules
Ultimately all notation is arbitrary, although some notations are more helpful than others. This book reviews the basic skills needed to understand the material, including a clear presentation of group theory.
Some of the problems seem to originate from the degeneracies inherent in atomic and molecular systems. Includes bibliographical references and index. My library Help Advanced Book Search. I have restrained myself and molefules not introduced spherical tensors, for example, because I believe that too many new concepts at one time are confusing. Bernath’s clear treatment of the confusing topic bernatu line strengths as needed for quantitative applications is featured.

Modern spectroscopy is based on the matrix approach to quantum mechanics. A certain amount of new material has been added based on my recent experiences with what is misleadingly called “quantitative spectroscopy. Nanocomposites with Biodegradable Polymers Vikas Mittal. The level of treatment and spirit of the book have not changed. The author discusses such topics as molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, molecu,es mechanics and group theory. Henriksen and Flemming Y.
Nothing in spectroscopy causes as much confusion as line intensities. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. Atalla, and Akira Isogai. Mlecules is surprisingly difficult to locate line intensity formulas in SI units, with the appropriate degeneracies included. I have taken great care to review the relevant mathematics and quantum mechanics as needed throughout the book.
This new edition has also added material pertaining to line intensities, which can be confusing due to the dozens of different units used to report line and band strengths. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excellent book of molecular spectroscopy! Analyses are made of atomic, rotational, vibrational, and electronic spectra.
Hertzberg’s thick 4-volume series, this book can lead you directly into the field of molecular spectroscopy. Oxford University PressApr 21, – Science – pages.
August Preface to First Edition This book is designed as a textbook to introduce advanced undergraduates and, par- ticularly, new graduate students to the vast field of spectroscopy.
Bernath Limited preview – Tunick and Charles I. Published by Oxford University Press, Inc. Although the student may not be happy with some aspects of spectroscopic notation, it is easier to adopt the notation than to try to change long-standing spectroscopic habits. ahoms

The book includes a clear presentation of group theory needed for understanding the material and a large number of excellent problems are found at the end of each chapter. Considerable detail is provided on the origin of spectro- scopic principles.
Choose your country or region Close. For example, the bdrnath of the physical specra has been used throughout, and the use of symbols and units conforms more closely to recommended practice.
The latter camp is populated mainly by analytical chemists, but includes astronomers and atmospheric scientists as well. Features include a presentation of group theory needed to understand spectroscopy, detailed worked examples and a large number of excellent problems at the end of each chapter.

Bernath Limited preview – Of interest to hernath, physicists, astronomers, atmospheric scientists, and engineers, it atosm the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with Topics such as molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are discussed.
Finally, my wife Robin has made the second edition possible through her continuing encouragement and understanding. Also of interest to chemists, physicists, astronomers, atmospheric scientists, and engineers, this volume emphasizes the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with the primary goal of teaching the interpretation of spectra.
