SYLLABUS

We will loosely follow George Schatz and Mark Ratner's text 'Quantum Mechanics in Chemistry' and will introduce basic concepts by surveying a very broad range of topics and applications. We will thus work quickly through the following areas to give students an overview of basic quantum principles and how they are applied in modern chemistry and spectroscopy:
