Modern physical chemistry is the basis of applied science and engineering. Reaction kinetics is useful in a variety of chemical reactions occurring in our environment. Spectroscopy is an essential tool in life science and material science. In order to understand chemical reaction and spectroscopy, one has to learn the fundamentals of quantum chemistry and statistical thermodynamics. In this course, these two essential subjects will be given by four different lecturers who are experts of modern physical chemistry. Students will be evaluated by each lecturers with attendance, short tests, or reports depending on the lecturer, which will be explained during lectures.
Any text book with the title including “physical chemistry” will be fine. Each of the lecturers may have one’s favorite textbooks and study-aid books. These will be announced at the beginning of each topic.
