Group theory inferences are widely applied to analyse the results of practically all spectroscopic methods used in organic and inorganic chemistry. Accordingly, group theory has become the working tool of chemists who not only synthesize new substances but also investigate their electronic structure and properties. This book is a manual for experimentalists and all fundamental concepts are introduced by way of simple examples, solving particular chemical and physical problems. In line with the practical bias of the book, main results are given as recipes for step by step use Group Theory In Chemistry and Spectroscopy.
