1 - 3 of 3 results for: CHEM 271: Advanced Physical Chemistry

CHEM 271: Advanced Physical Chemistry

The principles of quantum mechanics. General formulation, mathematical methods, and applications of quantum theory. Different representations of quantum theory, i. e., the Dirac, Schrödinger, matrix, and density matrix methods. Time independent exactly solvable problems and approximate methods including time independent perturbation theory and the variational method. Atomic energy calculations, angular momentum, and introduction to molecular structure methods. Time dependent methods. Time dependent perturbation theory applied to various problems such as absorption and emission of radiation. Time dependent density matrix formalism applied to coherent coupling of radiation fields to molecular systems, e.g., NMR and optical spectroscopy. Prerequisite: 175 or equivalent course.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Fayer, M. (PI)

CHEM 273: Advanced Physical Chemistry

Statistical mechanics is a fundamental bridge that links microscopic world of quantum mechanics to macroscopic thermodynamic properties. We discuss the principles and methods of statistical mechanics from the ensemble point of view. Applications include statistical thermodynamics, quantum systems, heat capacities of gases and solids, chemical equilibrium, pair correlation functions in liquids, and phase transitions. Prerequisite: 271.
