Publisher: TU Clausthal 2013
Number of pages: 302
This book provides an introduction into the quantum mechanics of the interacting electron gas. It aims at students at the graduate level, that already have a good understanding on one-particle quantum mechanics. My aim is to include all proofs in a comprehensive and hopefully water-tight manner.

The text introduces the basic notions of computational quantum chemistry, which allow to explore reaction mechanisms and explain observations of laboratory reactions. Methods for quantum chemistry can also be applied to solid state physics problems.

The ever growing field of Computational electronic structure theory combines theoretical physics and chemistry, math and computer science. The goal is to have a theory that accurately and reliably predicts material properties from first principles.

An introduction to molecular electronic structural theory, concentrating on the description of ground state electronic structures - the principles of chemical bonding in molecules. Familiarity with differential and integral calculus is required.
