CHEM 3890 is an introduction to the quantum mechanics of atoms and molecules. The fundamental principles of quantum mechanics are introduced, and applications of the theory to atomic and molecular structure are covered in detail. CHEM 3900  is a continuation of CHEM 3890 and discusses the thermodynamic behavior of macroscopic systems in the context of quantum and statistical mechanics. After an introduction to the behavior of ensembles of quantum mechanical particles (statistical mechanics), kinetic theory and the laws of thermodynamics are covered in detail.
