  • Book \\"A Short Course on Group Theory\\"
  • Introductory Course on Group Theory and Chemical Applications

    Authors: Hikmat S. Hilaland Abed Al-Hafez Sayda (An-Najah N. University, West Bank, Palestine) 
    Book Description:
    Group theory is conventionally taught in a one-semester course at the senior/graduate level for science students. For such a purpose, many textbooks, dealing with rigors of derivations and theorems, have been written to give in-depth treatment. For one reason or another, scientists with no prior knowledge of group theory may need quick familiarity with the subject, without mathematical derivation rigors.
    This book has been written for this purpose. The book is based on lecture notes given to senior/graduate students who need to deal with bonding theories and spectroscopy, without pre-knowledge of group theory. (Imprint: Novinka)

    Palestine has limited natural resources. Any future development should therefore be based on advanced technology. Such ambitious outlook dictates that Palestine heavily invests in quality teaching and researching in such areas. Materials research is one building block for building advanced technology

    The temperature of neutral gas of the nitrogen-corona discharge has been measured using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The variation of the optical path in the interferometer has been measured, together with the refraction index. Density variations were also calculated. Values of measured temperature

    In earlier studies, we demonstrated new simple techniques to modify characteristics of monolithic semiconductor electrodes (such as n-Si and n-GaAs) in light-to-electricity conversions. A combination of two methods, namely: cooling rate and coverage with electro-active ions simultaneously enhanced both conversion efficiency and stability o
