By Danail Bonchev, Dennis H. Rouvray

In bankruptcy 1, after an summary of a few historic elements of using symmetry in chemistry is given, the scene is determined by means of introducing a couple of crew theoretical innovations which were hired via chemists. bankruptcy 2 considers intimately the character and the different sorts of teams which were hired via chemists and others of their description of chemical platforms. In bankruptcy three a relatively new mathematical formalism is gifted that's now being more and more used for the translation of stereochemical phenomena. The symmetry of molecules is analyzed from a group-theoretical standpoint in bankruptcy four, whereas in bankruptcy five the symmetry of the chemical graphs which are regular to symbolize either natural and inorganic molecules is addressed. Chapters four and five jointly surround purposes reminiscent of the enumeration of many alternative chemical isomers and research of the symmetry features of quite a few lately synthesized molecules corresponding to the fullerenes.

Just as biological evolution responds to environmental stresses to shape organisms, atomic and molecular systems respond to internal and ex­ ternal forces to produce their appropriate symmetries. 7 Multiple Symmetries The behavior of systems at the atomic and molecular level is best described by quantum mechanics. In quantum mechanics, each particle in a system is described by its wave function. A single-particle wave func­ tion is a probability distribution function that tells the probability of finding the particle in the various allowed regions of the parameters on Big Groups, Small Groups and Their Connections 43 which the wave function depends.

Since the mathematical behavior of matrices is well-developed, the matrix representations provide powerful techniques for interpreting and working with groups. 3 Characters and Character Tables Matrix representations lead to the definitions of characters and char­ acter tables. A character is the trace (or spur- the sum of the diagonal elements) of a matrix representing a group element. A character table is a table listing the characters of all of the irreducible representations of a group. 1 is a character table for the three-dimensional pure rota­ tion group, R3.

Since the coefficient of cos 2(p is 2, the irreducible representation occurs once. This can be subtracted out to give E r 12 C(
