Textbook on crystal field theory and degeneracy breaking

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

In particular I would like to have a resource for the relation between group theory, crystal field symmetries and breaking of degeneracies of orbitals.

I've taken a graduate condensed matter course and graduate quantum mechanics courses. I have some basic knowledge of group theory but can learn what I need if the book has more group theory pre requisites.

Thanks

I don’t know if you need a whole book on it. The basics can be found in pretty much any decent inorganic chemistry book. Albert Cotton’s “Chemical Applications of Group Theory” goes into somewhat more depth.
