Course Description

Chemistry 542, the second course in the 540-542 sequence, is a graduate level course covering a number of topics in advanced physical chemistry:

In 2016, we’ll cover density matrices, time dependent quantum mechanics, classical electrodynamics, the Bloch equations, multipole expansion, second quantization, linear/nonlinear spectroscopies, laserlight, and correlation functions.

The selection of topics varies depending on what was already covered in Chem 540 and 548.
