Description This note provides a systematic treatment of symmetry in chemical
systems within the mathematical framework known as group theory. Topics covered
includes: Symmetry operations and symmetry elements, Symmetry classification of
molecules – point groups, Symmetry and physical properties, Combining symmetry
operations: group multiplication, Constructing higher groups from simpler
groups, Mathematical definition of a group, Transformation matrices, Matrix
representations of groups, Properties of matrix representations, Reduction of
representations, Irreducible representations and symmetry species, Bonding in
diatomics, Bonding in polyatomics, Molecular vibrations, Group theory and
molecular electronic states.
