Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text presents a highly specific version of the irreducible tensor method for molecular symmetry groups. Written by a distinguished chemist and biophysicist, it begins with an introduction, followed by considerations of V coefficients for the octahedral group and other symmetry groups, and a survey of W coefficients. Subsequent topics include irreducible products and their matrix elements, two-electron formulae for the octahedral group, fractional parentage, X coefficients, spin , and matrices of one-electron operators. A concluding chapter addresses special topics, and six appendixes offer useful supplements. 1962 ed.
