|a"The Sixth Edition of this widely used textbook presents quantum chemistry for beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The subject is carefully explained step-by-step, allowing students to easily follow the presentation. Necessary mathematics is reviewed in detail. Worked examples aid learning. A solutions manual for the problems is available. Extensive discussions of modern abinitio, density functional, semiempirical, and molecular mechanics methods are included."--Jacket.
