The post-war new release of chemists realized to deal with a blow pipe on the college as completely as glossy chemistry scholars discover ways to write computing device programmes. Even after international conflict II the rule of thumb of 3 used to be thought of to be enough mathematical wisdom for chemists and the fast process "higher arithmetic" at technical universities was once the attempt such a lot feared via chemistry scholars. besides the fact that, even then a few en­ visaged the theoretical derivation of data at the homes of molecules from wisdom of the bonding of the part atoms. over the past zone of this century, notable alterations have happened in chemistry, a few of them virtually superb. Dirac's well-known clairvoyant assertion* has been partly discovered. Incorporation of quantum mechanics into chemistry encountered a number of problems. in spite of everything, the reserve of experimental chemists isn't a surprise. for many years the hydrogen and helium atoms and the hydrogen molecule belonged one of the structures most often investigated by means of theoreti­ cians. Later those structures have been supplemented by means of ethylene and benzene. The authors of this booklet can accordingly bear in mind with realizing the phrases of the past due Professor Lukes: "Well, once they reach computing a molecule of a few alkaloid through these equipment of yours ... ". regrettably, the calculations on calycanin weren't accomplished earlier than his dying. Now there's no have to persuade even the contributors of the older iteration of the usefulness of quantum chemistry for chemists. Even the main conservative have been confident after the creation of the W ood­ ward-Hoffmann rules.

Z commute. In connection with the eigenvalues of the total angular momentum, it is particularly interesting to determine these values from the eigenvalues of the constituent quantities. The procedure used for addition of two momenta represents a general algorithm that is also applicable to a many-component system; the process of vector addition is then repeated stepwise for all pairs of ve~tors. Assuming that there is a system of two commuting angular momenta, corresponding either to two independent particles, such as a pair of electrons, or to two independent coordinates of the same particle, such as the spatial and spin coordinates of an electron, and if ~he squares of the momenta [cr.

And {3 cannot be established. In practice, the spindependent part of a one-electron function is defined by specifying the value of the quantum number, ms = ± h/2. Similarly as with the orbital angular momentum, the total spin angular momentum can be introduced; for a system of n electrons, (4-85) From the procedure of vector addition it is apparent that quantum number S [by analogy with I in Eq.
