Bonding, structure and solid-state chemistry / Mark Ladd.

This work begins with the first principles of bonding, structure and solid state chemistry, and can be appreciated by non-specialists. The study is aided by carefully prepared problems with fully worked solutions. It provides a suite of computer programs devised especially for the book.
