    This article describes symmetry from three perspectives: in mathematics, including geometry, the most familiar type of symmetry for many people; in science and nature; and in the arts, covering architecture, art and music. The opposite of symmetry is asymmetry. A thermodynamic potential is a scalar function used to represent the thermodynamic state of a system. One main thermodynamic potential, which has a physical interpretation, is the internal energy, U. The variables that are held constant in this process are termed the natural variables of that : Zhen-Chuan Li.

    Reviews the essentials of symmetry and group theory, including symmetry, point groups and representations and the application of group theory to vibrational spectroscopy Show less Provides a focused and comprehensive study of group theory and its applications, an invaluable resource to students of chemistry as well as those in related fields. When we use science to describe and understand the world around us, we are in essence grasping nature through symmetry. In fact, modern theoretical physics suggests that symmetry is a, if not the, foundational principle of izing the concepts, this book leads the reader coherently and comprehensively into the fertile field of symmetry and its applications.

      Group Theory is the mathematical application of symmetry to an object to obtain knowledge of its physical properties. What group theory brings to the table, is how the symmetry of a molecule is related to its physical properties and provides a quick simple method to determine the relevant physical information of the molecule. Emphasizing the concepts, this book leads the reader coherently and comprehensively into the fertile field of symmetry and its applications. Among the most important applications considered are the fundamental forces of nature and the Universe.3/5(1).

Symmetry is a classic study of symmetry in mathematics, the sciences, nature, and art from one of the twentieth century's greatest mathematicians. Hermann Weyl explores the concept of symmetry beginning with the idea that it represents a harmony of proportions, and gradually departs to examine its more abstract varieties and manifestations―as.

In its maximalistic use, the symmetry principle sets an upper bound on the symmetry of a cause, since, by the symmetry principle, the cause cannot be more symmetric than its effect. Maximalistic use is characteristic of basic science research, in which the effect is given and its cause must be found.

Symmetry provides an insight into the way nature works and is often used by scientists and technologists to help solve problems. Symmetry has numerous other applications as well with more being discovered all the time in science, the arts and other fields of human endeavor/5. Chemical Applications of Symmetry and Group Theory discusses different applications to chemical problems with suitable examples.
