Molecular Electronic Structures: an introduction
by Carl J. Ballhausen, Harry B. Gray
Publisher: Benjamin-Cummings Publishing Co. 1980
Number of pages: 139
The present book is an introduction to molecular electronic structural theory. It is aimed at students who have reasonable familiarity with differential and integral calculus and are beginning a study of the physical description of chemical systems. The authors concentrate on the description of ground state electronic structures, or, in other words, the principles of chemical bonding in molecules.

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.
