Molecular Mechanics: The Method and Its Underlying Philosophy.
Boyd, Donald B.; Lipkowitz, Kenny B.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n4 p269-74 Apr 1982
Molecular mechanics is a nonquantum mechanical method for solving problems concerning molecular geometries and energy. Methodology based on: the principle of combining potential energy functions of all structural features of a particular molecule into a total force field; derivation of basic equations; and use of available computer programs is discussed.
