Editorial Reviews


Winner of a 2005 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book Award!

For more than 25 years, Molecular Symmetry and Spectroscopy … and the subsequent second edition … have been this reviewer's most trusted authority and treasured references on the role of symmetry in molecular spectroscopy … . The book starts with a beautifully concise yet complete review of spectroscopy and quantum mechanics … . A fine balance is struck in the level of detail provided. … Summing up: highly recommended.
- CHOICE Reviews online

This book provides a welcome slant on molecular symmetry, for those who worry that rigid ball and stick point group arguments to ignore the geometrical distortions accompanying molecular vibrations. In summary, this book is welcome, first as an illuminating graduate text and also as an addition to the shelves of anyone who is responsible for teaching molecular symmetry at whatever level.
- Mark Child, Chemistry World, March 2005

This book is of primary importance in training new scientists in the field of molecular spectroscopy and quantum chemistry, i.e., in branches of modern science that attract increasing interest nowadays. It is particularly important that reading this book helps readers to form their correct general scientific philosophy.
- Dr. Yurii N. Panchenko, Moscow State University, Russia

Fundamentals of Molecular Symmetry is an excellent book. …The title thus belies the true content of the book; it covers so much more than most other books on molecular symmetry. As such it should be an essential text for any graduate student or established researcher working in the area of high-resolution spectroscopy. …Fundamentals of Molecular Symmetry is exceptionally well written and up to the very high standards set by the authors in their previous texts. It is clearly written and the figures and diagrams are beautifully produced. There are numerous figures of orbital shapes, energy-level diagrams and molecular spectra. Readers will also particularly appreciate the way each concept is illustrated by examples of application to real molecular systems. Fundamentals of Molecular Symmetry has my unqualified recommendation.
-Dr. D. Smith, Contemporary Physics
