5. Theory of Spectra and Molecular Properties

General Information: Lecture, 2 hours per week, Ph.D., Master, Guest Students, Time by agreement.
Place: Library Th. 1.805

Language: German or English.

While the energy is the fundamental quantity, chemists usually are interested on other properties, for example, the dipole moment or the molecular structure. The ability to accurately calculate these properties is one of the major strengths of modern electronic structure theory. The course on Theory Spectra and Molecular Properties aims to provide basic quantum mechanical understanding of molecular rotations and vibrations, electronic transitions, electric, optical, and magnetic properties of molecules.

The course is directed to graduate and postgraduate students who have already absolved the obligatory courses on Theoretical Chemistry.
