Abstract

Atoms attract each other to form molecules. For each molecule we would like to know the relative positions of its atoms, their vibration properties, and the changes in the electronic motion induced by molecular formation. Dimensional analysis and various computational methods such as the so-called LCAO are useful tools in obtaining this information.
