Bernath Spectra of Atoms and Molecules
The correct inclusion of this degeneracy turns out to be a nontrivial problem and is presented in Chapter 5 for atoms, but the expressions given there also apply to molecular systems. This new edition has been updated to include the CODATA revision of physical constants, and a large number of corrections and clarifications. Excellent book of molecular spectroscopy!
Considerable detail is provided on the origin of spectro- scopic principles. My favorite book on group theory is the text by Bishop, Group Theory and Chemistry, and I largely follow his approach to the subject. This book reviews the basic skills needed to understand the material, including a clear presentation of group theory.
Ebook This title is available as an ebook. Physics of Atoms and Ions Boris M. Molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are among the topics covered; atomic, rotational, vibrational, electronic and Raman spectra are analyzed.
Spectra of Atoms and Molecules Peter F. This book mokecules not a monograph on spectroscopy, but it can be profitably read by physicists, chemists, astronomers, and engineers who need to become acquainted with the subject.

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules Topics in physical chemistry series. Smirnov No preview available – Another major change is in author Peter Bernath’s discussion of the Raman effect and light scattering, where the standard theoretical treatment is now included.
Finally, my wife Robin has made the second edition possible through her continuing encouragement and understanding.
The figures for the second edition have been prepared by S. Even the definition of what constitutes a line can be a source of difficulties.
I have restrained myself and have not introduced spherical tensors, for example, because I believe that too many new concepts at one time are confusing. Includes bibliographical references and index.
In keeping with the visual aspects of the course, the author provides a large number of diagrams and spectra specifically recorded for this book. Tunick od Charles I. VKI lecture series H. Elementary Scattering Theory D. Although the student may not be happy with some aspects of spectroscopic notation, it is easier to adopt the notation than to try to change long-standing spectroscopic habits.
Topics such as molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are discussed.

Bernath’s clear treatment of the confusing topic of line strengths as needed for quantitative applications is featured. A solid understanding of the classical and quantum mechanical theory of polarizability of molecules is indispensable in the area of nonlinear spectroscopy.
For example, the revision of the physical constants has been used throughout, and the use of symbols and units conforms more closely to recommended practice. Rather than assume a previous exposure or try to summarize group theory in a short chapter, I have chosen to provide a more thorough introduction. Spectra of Atoms and Molecules. I have tried to convey the spirit of modern spectroscopy, through the extensive use of the language of matrices.
It will also be of interest to professionals in chemistry, physics, astronomy, and engineering. I have tried to take particular care to address the elementary aspects of spectroscopy that students have found to be most confusing. The book includes a clear presentation of group theory needed for understanding the material and a large number of excellent problems are found at the end of each chapter. The usual intensity formulas are derived as in Chapter 1 for transitions between nondegenerate quantum states, while measurements are generally made on transitions between degenerate energy levels.
Hertzberg’s thick 4-volume series, this book can lead you directly into the field of molecular spectroscopy.
Spectra of Atoms and Molecules
Modern spectroscopy is based on the matrix approach to bernsth mechanics. Nothing in spectroscopy causes as much confusion as line intensities. One of the goals of this book is to introduce the language of spectroscopy to the new student of the subject.
