CHEM 581 - Quantum and Computational Chemistry


Description:
A 3-credit lecture course including quantum mechanical descriptions of translation, rotation, and vibration of microscopic particles, electronic structures of atoms and molecules, Hartree-Fock (HF) and post-HF theories and their applications in the computation of physical and chemical properties of studied matters. Course will not have an established scheduling pattern.

Prerequisites:
Prerequisite: CHEM 383.

Credits:
(3)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Apply quantum mechanical theory to describe and analyze translation, rotation, and vibration of microscopic particles.
  • Apply quantum mechanical theory to describe and analyze electronic structures of atoms and molecules.
  • Describe the principles and algorithms in the Hartree-Fock (HF) and post-HF theories.
  • Use computational chemistry software programs widely used in academia and/or industry.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the recent progress in a selected area of computational chemistry.
