Atoms in Molecules: An Introduction

Atoms in Molecules (AIM) is a powerful and novel theory for understanding chemistry, acting as a bridge between fundamental chemical concepts - such as the atom, the bond and molecular structure - and quantum mechanics. It is used increasingly in both theoretical and crystallographic research internationally, including its use in interpreting experimental charge densities.

This book provides a balanced, consistent and didactic account of this exciting theory, explaining its potential impact and making it accessible to a wide audience.
