Summary

This course consists of two parts. The first part covers basic concepts of molecular symmetry and the application of group theory to describe it. The second part introduces Laplace transforms and Fourier series and their use for solving ordinary and partial differential equations in chemistry & c.e.

Assessment methods

Part I (Lorenz): midterm exam 100%

Part II (Vanicek): homeworks 30% + midterm exam 70%

The points from the two parts are combined to form the final grade.
