Nothing in spectroscopy causes as much confusion as line intensities. Although Placzek’s approach is hardly light reading, the diligent student will find the derivations illuminating.

The correct inclusion of this degeneracy turns out to be a nontrivial problem and is presented in Chapter 5 for atoms, but the expressions given there also apply to molecular o.

It will also be of interest to professionals in chemistry, physics, astronomy, and engineering. Even the or of what constitutes a line can be a source of difficulties. A solid understanding of the classical and quantum mechanical theory of polarizability of molecules is indispensable in the area of nonlinear spectroscopy. Tunick and Charles I. I have taken great care to review the relevant mathematics and quantum mechanics as needed throughout the book.

This book reviews the basic skills needed to understand the material, including a clear In keeping with the visual aspects of the course, the author provides a large number of diagrams and spectra specifically recorded for this book. It presumes that the student is familiar with the material in an undergraduate course in quantum mechanics.

Physics of Atoms and Ions Boris M. I still aim to meet the needs of new students of spectroscopy regardless of their background. The level of treatment and spirit of the book have not changed. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excellent book of molecular ayoms Also of interest to chemists, betnath, astronomers, atmospheric scientists, and engineers, this volume emphasizes the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with the primary goal of teaching the interpretation of spectra.

Some of the problems seem to originate from the degeneracies inherent in atomic and molecular systems. To purchase, visit your preferred ebook provider.

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules Peter F. Bernath’s clear treatment of the confusing topic of line strengths as needed for quantitative applications is featured. Published by Oxford University Jolecules, Inc.

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules. The Raman effect is also discussed. Some topics in this book, such as parity, are not discussed well in any of the textbooks or monographs that I have encountered. Includes bibliographical references and index. Ebook This title is available as an ebook. The author discusses such topics as molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics and group theory.

Bernath Spectra of Atoms and Molecules

I have tried to convey the atomz of modern spectroscopy, through the extensive use of the language of matrices. 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.

I also thank my fall graduate class in molecular spectroscopy vii Vlll M. The infrared and electronic spectrq of polyatomic molecules makes extensive use of group theory. The figures for the second edition have been prepared by S. Thomas Strom and Vera V. 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.


Other than the addition of material pertaining to line intensities in Chapters 5 to 10, a major change in the second edition is in the discussion of the Raman effect and light scattering Chapter 8.

Real spectroscopic problems vernath be solved on the computer more easily if they are formulated in terms of matrix operations rather than differential equations. The principles of spectroscopy are timeless, but spectroscopic techniques are more transient. 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.

Hertzberg’s thick 4-volume series, this book can lead you directly into the field of molecular spectroscopy. Andd have restrained myself and have not introduced spherical tensors, for example, because I believe that too many new concepts at one time are confusing. Bernath Limited preview – 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. It emphasizes the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with its primary goal being to teach students how to interpret spectra.

Responding to student requests, the main new feature is the addition of detailed worked examples in each chapter. Quantum Liquids Anthony James Leggett.
