This course provides an introduction to quantum mechanics and its application to chemistry.

This is the second of a three term sequence in physical chemistry. It builds on material introduced in CHEM 260. The Schrödinger Equation is solved in 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensions for important chemical problems. Group theory and quantum chemistry are used to understand chemical bonding and advanced spectroscopy. Should be elected in the same term as CHEM 462.
