Physical Chemistry IVB: Quantum Chemistry
CHEM 341
Fall 2010
Section: 01  

This survey of ab initio electronic structure theory studies basis sets, many-body perturbation theory, coupled cluster theory, and density functional methods. These methods will be applied to molecular geometry optimizations, calculations of vibrational frequencies, NMR spectra, and thermochemistry including transition states for chemical reactions. The thermochemical methods covered include the complete basis set (CBS) models.

Essential Capabilities: Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning
Derivation of fundamental equations with quantitative applications to specific examples using computer programs
