This textbook was written to help students needing to “use quantum chemical methods in interdisciplinary applications.” It was written by Pablo Echenique and J.L. Alonso of the Universidad of Zaragoza (Spain) and published in 2007.

This introductory text is identified by the authors as being “self-contained” so that “it may be useful for non-experts.” They hope it will serve as a handy reference guide.
