    Abstract

    An improved theory of the optical properties of crystals of chiral molecules is developed. It incorporates molecular chirality via the response coefficients used in treating molecular optical activity and lattice chirality via lattice sums used in treating crystal spatial dispersion. Excitons in crystals of enantiomeric molecules should exhibit different Davydov splittings.
