Last update: Pátková Vlasta (09.01.2018)
Basic information on the methods of modern quantum chemistry (i.e. quantum theory of atoms and molecules) is provided in this course. The students will learn both the theory and practical applications on problems in the fields of physical chemistry, spectroscopy, inorganic and organics chemistry.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (09.01.2018)

The students will know:

  • theoretical foundations of quantum theory of atoms and molecules
  • the work with the basic SW in quantum chemistry
  • how to formulate and solve problems related to the structure and properties of molecules and molecular systems
