Chemical structure

The aim of the course is to present the fundamental principles of the electronic structure of atoms, molecules and chemical bonding and to give a brief discussion of the background of experimental methods which are useful for study of molecular structure. It is assumed that the student is acquainted with the basic concepts of quantum mechanics.
