I put a list of references cosidered good. List is not comprehensive but
will be usefull.

o Boyd and Lipkowitz (J. Chem. Edu. 1982, 59, 269-274.
o Lou Allinger and Phil Bowen Reviews of Computational Chemistry
(vol 2, Chapter 3).
o Mike Cory and Phil Bowen Encyclopedia of Pharmaceutical Technology
(vol 3, 1991 by Marcel Dekker, Inc.).
o A.I. Hopfinger (J. Med. Chem. 1985, 28, 1133).
o Ira N. Levine, Quantum Mechanics, 4th ed, pp 583-587,
o A Handbook of Computational Chemistry, by Tim Clark;
o Ulrich Burkert and Norman L. Allinger, Molecular Mechanics, ACS Monograph
177, American Chemical Society, Washington, D.C., 1982 (about 340 pages).
o "Computational Chemistry Using the PC", By Donald Rodgers, VCH, 1991.
o P. Cox, J. Chem. Ed.,59, (1982), pp275-277.
