The periodic kingdom : a journey into the land of the chemical elements by P. W Atkins ( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 2,403 libraries worldwide
"Just how does the periodic table help us make sense of the world around us? Using vivid imagery, ingenious analogies, and liberal doses of humor, P. W. Atkins answers this question. He shows us that the Periodic Kingdom is a systematic place. Detailing the geography, history, and governing institutions of this imaginary landscape, he demonstrates how physical similarities can point to deeper affinities, and how the location of an element can be used to predict its properties." "Atkins tells us about the cosmic origins of the elements and introduces the intrepid explorers and cartographers who expanded the frontiers of the kingdom: Humphry Davy, the nineteenth-century chemist who identified and catalogued several of the common metallic elements; Dmitri Mendeleev, the Russian scientist who (legend has it) saw in a dream the prototype of the modern periodic table; and the Manhattan Project scientists who originated the techniques still used today to map the dangerously radioactive regions."--BOOK JACKET.
Physical chemistry by P. W Atkins ( Book )
170 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 2,110 libraries worldwide
This volume features a greater emphasis on the molecular view of physical chemistry and a move away from classical thermodynamics. It offers greater explanation and support in mathematics which remains an intrinsic part of physical chemistry.

Four laws that drive the universe by P. W Atkins ( Book )
12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,367 libraries worldwide
The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Atkins' explains what the laws are and how they work.
Galileo's finger : the ten great ideas of science by P. W Atkins ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,290 libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Galileo's Finger takes the reader on an extraordinary journey that embraces the ten central ideas of current science. "By a great idea," writes Peter Atkins, "I mean a simple concept of great reach, an acorn of an idea that ramifies into a great oak tree of application, a spider of an idea that can spin a great web and draw in a feast of explanation and elucidation." With wit, charm, and patience, Atkins leads the reader to an understanding of the essence of the whole of science, from evolution and the emergence of complexity, to entropy, the spring of all change in the universe; from energy, the universalization of accountancy, to symmetry, the quantification of beauty; and from cosmology, the globalization of reality, to spacetime, the arena of all action.

Molecular quantum mechanics by P. W Atkins ( Book )
58 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,240 libraries worldwide
"Quantum mechanics embraces the behaviour of all known forms of matter, including the atoms and molecules from which we, and all living organisms, are composed. Molecular Quantum Mechanics leads us through this absorbing yet challenging subject, unravelling the fundamental physical principles that explain how all matter behaves. Fully updated to reflect the latest advances in computational techniques, and enhanced with more mathematical support and worked examples than ever before, Molecular Quantum Mechanics remains the ultimate resource for those wishing to master this important subject."--BOOK JACKET.
