  • Letter from Professor E. Bright Wilson, Jr., Chemistry Dept., Harvard University, to LP and Dr. Martin Karplus, Chemistry Dept., University of Illinois, RE: Has seen the letter from Handsfield about the size. Now prepared to comment on LP and Karplus' ideas for revision. Believes that the classical mechanics chapter should be altered. The chapter on the old quantum theory should be drastically revised. The wave equation needs some underpinning. Strongly believes that the book is for chemists and not for mathematicians; mathematics should be used as needed and not too heavily. Feels that a great weakness in the book is the lack of the matrix approach. Thinks the selection rule chapter dealing with interaction of radiation and matter could be improved.
