Symmetry of Many-Electron Systems discusses the group-theoretical methods applied to physical and chemical problems. Group theory allows an individual to analyze qualitatively the elements of a certain system in scope. The text evaluates the characteristics of the Schrodinger equations. It is proved that some groups of continuous transformation from the Lie groups are useful in identifying conditions and in developing wavefunctions. A section of the book is devoted to the utilization of group-theoretical methods in quantal calculations on many-electron systems. The focus is on the use of group-theoretical methods to the classification and calculation of states of molecule. A chapter of the book gives a comprehensive discussion of the fractional parentage method. This application is used in atomic and nuclear spectroscopy. The method of employing coordinate wave functions is explained. The standard Young-Yamanouchi orthogonal representation is presented completely. The book will provide useful guides for physicists, chemists, engineers, students, and researchers in the field of physics.
