Quantum Dynamics and Spectroscopy

A Summer Short Course on Quantum Dynamics and Spectroscopy ( Lectured in Chinese)

8 units

This is to be a short course of 8 lectures that provide a general overview of time-dependent quantum mechanics and approximation methods useful in descriptions of excitation energy transfer and electron transfer in condensed-phase molecular systems. A density-matrix approach will be emphasized, and the content will consist of developments of theoretical methods that have broad applications in physical chemistry. A time-dependent approach to linear spectroscopy and a brief introduction to nonlinear spectroscopy will also be presented.
