Quantum Chemistry

Written by: S.M. Blinder (University of Michigan)

Online textbook, course syllabus and supplementary materials for University of Michigan Quantum Chemistry course taught by Professor S.M. Blinder in 2002. Students will even find several of the exams from when Blinder taught the course; including answers.

As described by the website, “Students will solve the Shrodinger equation in 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensions for several problems of interest in chemistry, including the particle-in-a-box, harmonix oscillator, rigid rotor, and hydrogen atom. Further topics include atomic structure, valence-bond and molecular orbital theories of chemical bonding and group theory. The concepts of quantum theory are applied to molecular spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance.”
