In this textbook for a first-year graduate course of about 40 hours, Magnasco (U. of Genoa, Italy) introduces students of quantum chemistry to the methods of molecular quantum mechanics, in prerequisite for understanding quantum chemical calculations. He pays special attention to the Rayleigh variational method, characterizing it as the essential tool for any practical application both in molecular orbital and valence bond theory. Among the topics are atomic orbitals, the anti-symmetry of many-electron wavefunctions, valence bond theory and the chemical bond, and elements of Rayleigh-Schroedinger perturbation theory.
