Boeyens D.C. The Theories of Chemistry
Elsevier Science & Technology Books, 2003. — 555 p. ISBN: 0444514910 OCR
The theme of this book is not a reformulation of theoretical physics, but an attempt to identify the theoretical ideas fundamental to chemistry and recast them in more familiar style. There is no doubt but, that the chemist of this century will have to be familiar with the concepts that appear to be new, even alien, at present. The philosophy that inspires this work is that specialization in science is detrimental in the long term. Specialization may well stimulate productivity in the short term, but this productivity becomes sterile in the absence of innovation, that depends on cross-pollenation, or the adoption of new theoretical models.
The book contains very little original material, but reviews a fair amount of forgotten results that point to new lines of enquiry. Concepts such as quaternions, Bessel functions, Lie groups, Hamilton-Jacobi theory, solitons, Rydberg atoms, spherical waves and others, not commonly emphasized in chemical discussion, acquire new importance. To prepare the ground, the Vlll book has been designed as a self-contained summary of the essential theoretical background on which to build a modern theory of chemistry.
