An introduction to the current state of theory in a new and lively field, this volume offers both students and researchers a practical guide. It features a comprehensive set of pictures of fullerene structures and tabulates their properties. In addition, it lists a computer program that will extend the tables as needed. Seven chapters of descriptive material precede over 200 pages of tables with corresponding diagrams and serve as a self-contained introduction. Topics include fullerene cages, electronic structure, steric strain, symmetry and spectroscopy, fullerene isomerization, and carbon gain and loss. Each chapter concludes with references and notes.
