Physical Chemistry II - Quantum Chemistry

Physical Chemistry II: Quantum Chemistry
物理化學二:量子化學 ( Lectured in Chinese)

30 units

This course aims to provide an introduction to the fundamental concepts in time-independent quantum mechanics and approximation methods useful in physical chemistry, with an emphasis on the descriptions of many-electron systems and spectroscopy. The lectures will be divided into three parts: 1/3 with focus on basics of time-independent quantum mechanics and using quantum mechanics on simple systems, 1/3 with focus on electronic structures of atoms and molecules and the molecular orbital theory, and the last 1/3 with applications of quantum mechanics to spectroscopy.
