The book deals with the problems and solutions related to symmetry theory, with a focus on the principles, molecules and atoms, and attempts to elucidate these tions for the readers; the problems and their solutions have been accommodated in five different sections. Some of the topics included in the book are Transformations, Representations, Symmetry adapted functions, Projection operators, Vibrations, Normal modes, Hybrid orbitals, Euler angles & rotations, Atoms, Transition Metal Ions & Perturbations. The explanations and illustrations provided in the book are easy to follow, and they help the readers comprehend the complicated concepts and hypotheses related to symmetry theory. The book is primarily aimed at benefiting the graduate and post graduate students of Chemistry.
Dr. Sisir Kumar Rakshit joined Burdwan University, India, as a Reader and later served as a Professor of Chemistry for three decades, during which he taught quantum mechanics, group theory, atomic spectra and theoretical kinetics. He has various publications under his name.
