Good resource for Teaching IR with Symmetry Elements

Submitted by Marco Zimmer-De Iuliis / University of Toronto on Tue, 11/16/2010 - 15:33

Hello all,


I am teaching a thrid year inorganic course and want to teach some IR basic using symmetry and character tables.


I would like to go over generating  Reducible representations and then use the reduction formula based on the character table to get to the irreducible representation.


I am using Housecroft and Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry Text book, 3rd edition and they do cover this topic a little bit, biut I was wondering if anyone knows of other more comprehensive resources with further examples and explanations.
