Product Description


"the book is a valuable contribution to understanding the behavior of solids, liquids and gases...."
––Colloid Polymer Science, June 2000

"An achievement of the author is the presentation of such sophisticated material in an interesting way."
––High Temperatures – High Pressures, Vol 32/4, 2000

From the Back Cover

Chemical Modeling equips the reader with the knowledge to understand the behaviour of solids, gases and liquids in terms of the basic properties of their atoms, molecules, and polymer chains. In particular the interactions between these fundamental building blocks and the intermolecular and intramolecular potentials are examined. Carefully structured, the book starts by the discussion of classical, quantum and statistical mechanics which then leads on to a discussion of modeling techniques applied to solids, gases and liquids. The subject is brought to life through many real life examples and practical illustrations. Features
∗ Classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are both introduced from a basic level
∗ Explains the relationships between microscopic and macroscopic quantities
∗ Gives an up–to–date treatment of a variety of chemical modeling techniques
∗ Avoids unnecessary mathematical rigour
∗ Carefully structured into ′bite–sized′ chapters
Ideal for undergraduates of chemistry, chemical physics, physics, materials science and polymer science.

HASH(0x989e4c48) out of 5 stars Adequate attempt at introducing modeling 2 Jan. 2004
By Newton Ooi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The stated goal of this book is to introduce the science of chemical modeling to newcomers. It assumes the reader has little knowledge of crystallography, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, or computer programming; the four fields upon which chemical modeling is built upon. As such, the book does an adequate job. The math is adequate and well-documented. There is even coverage of the numerous techniques used in chemical modeling. And there are relevant examples of how modeling is applied.

The book could be written better though. The text is written in first-person, and would flow better written in third-person. The figures and tables/charts are good. There are adequate references to other sources that expand upon what is covered in the text. All in all, this is a good text to use in undergraduate chemistry / materials science courses to introduce students to atomistic scale modeling.
