Molecular Structure and Spectroscopy

The aim of the course is to outline the fundamental principles of the theory of molecular spectroscopy. The emphasis is placed upon the elucidation of the energy levels and selection rules and interpretation of spectra via quantum mechanics. It is assumed that the student is acquainted with the basic concepts of quantum mechanics and chemical structure.
