Learning outcomes

This course is intended as an introduction to more advanced topics for chemistry students with no other background in quantum mechanics except the intermediate chemistry courses. It introduces students to the theoretical structure of quantum mechanics and to the role of molecular symmetry and its description using group theory. After the course, the student understands the basic mathematical structure of quantum mechanics, its fundamental results in connection with chemistry, and can apply the knowledge to simple chemically relevant problems. The student also understands the principle of molecular symmetry and can apply it to simple chemical problems involving quantum mechanics and vibrational spectroscopy. The course gives background knowledge needed in more advanced courses on quantum chemistry.
