Absolutely essential for any doctorate level Inorganic Chemist or Material Scientist. Re-defines the concept of spacial-reasoning and the way you will now be able to better understand the complex nuances of every kind of chemical interaction on both atomic and molecular levels.
Linear Algebra on a basic level is absolutely required before this material is accessible to anyone. Last but not least, differential equations will go a Absolutely essential for any doctorate level Inorganic Chemist or Material Scientist. Last but not least, differential equations will go a long way as well to making this incredible easy to process.
Aug 25, Liz rated it it was amazing. This is a difficult subject, but Cotton does a decent job explaining it. In my community is seems to be the go-to book for understanding group theory in terms of spectroscopy. I appreciated that the book was broken into two sections: half the book focusing on a general introduction of the theory and how to think about everything and half the book dedicated to applications.

The preface to the book starts out with the lofty and laudable claim that its objective is to provide a book that 1 does not shy away from providing the reasons behind group theoretic methods to analyze the symmetry-related properties of molecules, yet 2 "'can be read in bed without a pencil'" yes, a quote of a quote, although I'm pulling it from memory. Unsurprisingly, it falls short of this ambition; in my estimation, it misses both goals by about the same amount.

Cotton had only a nodding acquaintance with the notion of "proof", which cuts both ways, both in lack of rigor and lack of clarity. That said, it's still one of the more lucid midlevel physics or chemistry texts I have encountered. Actually following the book all the way through, even without doing any of the exercises, allowed me to bootstrap my way to a higher level of understanding than I had when I took the associated class 15 years ago and gave me some serious help in sorting out a core issue in the literature I was reading.

Chemical Applications of Group Theory, 3rd Edition
Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this WorldCat. This book aims to teach the use of symmetry arguments to the typical experimental chemist in a way that he will find meaningful and useful. At the same time I have tried to avoid that excessive and unnecessary superficiality which only leads, in the end, to incompetence and its attendant frustrations. The student who masters this book will know what he is doing, why he is doing it, and how to do it. The range of subject matter is that which, in my judgment, the great majority of organic, inorganic, and physical chemists are likely to encounter in their daily research activity.
