Introduction to Quantum Mechanics with Applications to Chemistry by Linus Pauling, E. Bright Wilson widely describes quantum mechanics to a broad range of chemical and physical problems, covering such subjects as wave functions for the hydrogen atom, perturbation theory, the Pauli exclusion principle, and the structure of simple and complex molecules. Numerous tables and figures.
