We can see this by comparing the vector transforma- tion properties of D4h and C4v, which are indicated in Fig. However, the character 3 under the E operation makes it apparent that I', is not an irreducib1e representation of C2v. In older texts you may find triply degenerate irreducible representations designated by F, a notation that is no longer used. In this strict sense, the others are not truly tetrahedral. Ali other com- binations give results consistent with those of the C2v character table, a fact which you should be able to verify.

Calling upon my own remembered experiences in learning this material and upon my experience in teaching it for many years, I ha ve tried to anticipate those questions and troublesome points students typically have with the subject.
As a practical matter, this book shows very explicitly some of the most effective techniques for applying group theory to chemical problems.
Some of these e. Other techniques and methods of approach are uniquely my own. In addition to fundamentals of theory and application, l have tried to show how group theory has contributed and continues to contribute to our theoretical understanding of structure and bonding.
It is my belief that students gain a greater vii a appreciation for any theoretical topic when it is shown how and when the ideas evolved. I would hope that students wiU realize from this that syrnmetry and group theory considerations are not peripheral to the theory of structure and bonding but rather are centrai to a complete understanding.
When teaching a graduate level course in group theory, I cover all topics in this text, at least in the depth presented and essentially in the order of the chapters. When teaching the junior-senior advanced inorganic chemistry course, owing to the constraints of time and level, the coverage is more selective in both range and depth.
For this purpose, I customarily cover alI of the material in Chapters l through 4. However, since this is most students' first encounter with symmetry and group theory, I do not think it necessary to introduce the more advanced topic of projection operators, the subject of Chapter 5. Therefore, I routinely skip this material at this leve!.
In keeping with this, I have written the succeeding chapters in this text so as not to depend upon knowledge of projection operators. For the undergraduate course, I do cover the lise of group theory for deducing spectroscopic selection rules for infrared and Raman activity Chapter 6 but do not go into the depth of coverage on overtones, combinations, and other spectroscopic complications presented in Section 6.
Likewise, with transition metal complexes I cover ali the topics in Chapter 7 but gloss over the details of splitting of terms and the development of correlation diagrams Sections 7.
Beyond the confines of any course, this book should serve the needs of advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professional chemists seeking to learn or review symmetry and group theory on their own. For this purpose, beyond Chapters l through 4, readers should feel free to delve into the topics of the remaining chapters as their interests and needs dictate.
Many individuals have contributed to making this a better book than it would have been without their constructive criticisms.
First and foremost, I am most appreciative of the many students who used earlier editions of this material in my courses and beyond, particularly those who were forthcoming in their comments. While it is nice to receive compliments, I must confess I more greatly valued your calling to my attention points of confusion and incidents of errors in the earlier versions of the text.
While I have not incorporated every one of their suggestions which at times were divergent , I have gladly accepted every idea that seemed to further the goals of the text, consistent with my generai approach. I am especially grateful to my colleague Professar Leverett J.
