An introduction to molecular electronic structural theory, concentrating on the description of ground state electronic structures - the principles of chemical bonding in molecules. Familiarity with differential and integral calculus is required.
Contents: Electron configuration; Tight binding; Nearly free electron model; Hartree-Fock method; Modern valence bond; Generalized valence bond; Moller-Plesset perturbation theory; Configuration interaction; Coupled cluster; etc.
