Initially released in 1970, this booklet supplies a complete account of the houses of ice, the connections among them and how within which they derive from the constitution of the water molecule and the small mass of the proton. The houses are mentioned by way of quantum mechanics and good nation concept with emphasis on actual ideas instead of on theoretical versions. The publication is meant as an exemplification of the foundations of chemical physics for starting graduate scholars in physics of actual chemistry and as a textual content and reference publication at the houses of ice for study employees in glaciology, cloud physics, meteorology and linked fields. even though the writer assumes a familiarity with basic physics, he has taken a few difficulty to make his account self-contained by way of connection with the underlying ideas in each case or by means of extra specific dialogue the place the appliance isn't a typical one.
