This course is an introduction to modern molecular electronic structure calculations. Through in-class lectures and in-class exercises students will become familiar with some of the most popular methods for electronic structure calculations in molecules using the Gaussian computational chemistry package. The main emphasis of the course is to provide the students with the tools to devise their own computational chemistry calculations and to be able to assess whether any given calculation is likely to provide meaningful answers to chemical questions.
