Mathematical Modeling II
Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy
by Troy Story
This book, Mathematical Modeling II: Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy, can be used for a one semester course on the quantum mechanics and spectroscopy of atoms and molecules, employing both wave mechanics and matrix mechanics. It is a book that features traditional topics in physical chemistry (chemical physics), but is distinguished by problem solving techniques which emphasize the assignment of mathematical models to describe physical phenomena. The pedagogy employed is to first unify theoretical and empirical perceptions of the highlights which led to the birth of quantum mechanics, and then apply quantum mechanics to model electronic energy states of atoms, and electronic, vibrational and rotational energy states of molecules. Following development of these models are applications to atomic and molecular spectroscopy.
