Der überaus erfahrene Autor füllt mit diesem Lehrbuch eine Lücke. Die Konzepte der Quantentheorie werden zugänglich und praxisorientiert präsentiert. Durch MATLAB-Codes lassen sich die beschriebenen numerischen Verfahren einfach umsetzen.
Hochaktuelle Themen, wie Cluster, Nanokristalle, Übergänge und organische Moleküle, werden umfassend abgedeckt. DFT, Variation und verschiedene andere Methoden sowie Annäherungswellenfunktionen werden ebenfalls erläutert.
