Gerke Max Preussner marked it as to-read Jul 06, This graduate-level text develops the aspects of group theory most relevant to physics and chemistry such as the theory of representations and illustrates their applications to quantum mechanics.

Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. This book has the advantage of applying group theory directly to solvable physical problems. It was quite incomplete even when written, since it did not include any discussion of ligand-field theory. The purely mathematical aspects of the subject are treated briefly, but much more completely, than “chemical group theory books” like Cotton’s, for example.
Bradley Brock added it Aug 02, A compact and worthwhile compilation of the scattered material on standard methods, this volume presumes a basic understanding of quantum theory. After reading just the first chapter of Tinkham’s book, I developed a new, deeper understanding of group theory as a whole.
Prabir Roy rated it it was ok Apr 11, Some of the views are a little outdated specifically the applications to molecular QM, particularly in leiu of Ligand-Field Theory and he doesn’t really cover the effects of mcehanics wavefunctions for electrons nor ever mentions Mulliken in molecular QM.
