About the Author:

Thomas Engel has taught chemistry at the University of Washington for more than 20 years, where he is currently a professor emeritus of chemistry. Professor Engel received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from Johns Hopkins University, and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Chicago. He then spent 11 years as a researcher in Germany and Switzerland, during which time he received the Dr. rer. nat. habil. degree from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. In 1980, he left the IBM research laboratory in Zurich to become a faculty member at the University of Washington. Professor Engel’s research interests are in the area of surface chemistry, and he has published more than 80 articles and book chapters in this field. He has received the Surface Chemistry or Colloids Award from the American Chemical Society and a Senior Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

New to This Edition:

The third edition of Quantum Chemistry & Spectroscopy includes changes at several levels. The most far-reaching change is the introduction of Mastering Chemistry® for Physical Chemistry. Over 460 tutorials will augment the example problems in the book and enhance active learning and problem-solving. Selected end of chapter problems are now assignable within Mastering Chemistry® and numerical, equation, and symbolic answer types are automatically graded. The art program has been updated and expanded, and several levels of accuracy checking have been incorporated to increase accuracy throughout the text. Many new conceptual problems have been added to the book and most of the numerical problems have been revised. Problems have been added to the end of Chapter 3 and a new section on superposition wave functions has been added. A new section on traveling waves and potential energy barriers has been added to Chapter 5. The discussion of the classical harmonic oscillator and the rigid rotor has been better integrated by placing these sections before the corresponding quantum models in Chapter 7. Chapter 12 has been revised to better introduce the molecular orbital theory. A new section on computational results and a set of new problems working with molecular orbitals has been added to Chapter 13. The number and breadth of the numerical problems have been increased substantially in Chapter 14.
