CHEM 740/7400 - Quantum Mechanics in Chemistry

Semester: Winter 2021 Professor: M. Nooijen | Discipline: Theoretical | Campus: Waterloo
The focus of the course will be electronic structure theory with a smaller section on vibronic coupling. The course will cover a description of the basic electronic structure problem introducing an atomic orbital basis set, Slater determinants and the Slater-Condon rules. Then we will cover Hartree-Fock theory in fair detail. We will move on to the technique of second quantization and we will first cover vibrational problems, inclucing vibronic coupling, going beyond the Born-Oppenheimer ...
