New book from Prof. Dr. Dronskowski


The goal of this entertaining, even humorous primer-style textbook Chemical Bonding - From Plane Waves via Atomic Orbitals is to truly serve but not repel the reader. It explains basic quantum chemistry of solids, teaches chemical thinking and important general-chemistry treats, and it covers numerous real-world materials. It is truly possible to chemically explain reliable plane-wave computational results, and to do so, one runs the handy LOBSTER computer program operating with atomic orbitals such as to extract plenty of chemical-bonding information. Based on that, human understanding can finally be reached.
