A course in physical chemistry, spring 2016
Quantum Chemistry provides a basis for the advanced physical and computational chemistry studies. Some of the computational exercises of the course can be included in the Advanced Physical Chemistry Laboratory Course (55451). A successful participation assumes that the courses Atomic and Molecular Structure (55422), Introduction to Computational Chemistry (55416), and Mathematical and Numerical Methods (55467) have been passed.
- Basics of quantum chemistry
- Approximate methods in quantum chemistry
- Structures of atoms and molecules
Additional information: The course is based on lectures and on the book P. W. Atkins and R. S. Friedman, Molecular Quantum Mechanics (5. edition, Oxford University Press). Additional reading: J. Murto, Kvanttikemia and F. Jensen: Introduction to Computational Chemistry
- Nuclear motion
- Electronic structure calculations
