"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.

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.
