Description:
COURSE GOALS: The aim of this course is to introduce students to the complex molecules as quantum mechanical objects , gaining qualitative insight into the ranks of the size of the energy of molecules and molecular polymorphism in the system . Students should be able to gain an overview of the theoretical methods used to calculate the intrinsic energy of free molecules , and get a glimpse of some experimental methods that are appropriate for the determination of their spectra and structure . Selected topics would serve to link the learned concepts and approaches to students the importance of molecular physics to chemistry , bioengineering and medicine .


LEARNING OUTCOMES AT THE LEVEL OF THE PROGRAMME:

1. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
1.2 demonstrate a thorough knowledge of advanced methods of theoretical physics including classical mechanics, classical electrodynamics, statistical physics and quantum physics
1.3 demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the most important physics theories (logical and mathematical structure, experimental support, described physical phenomena)

2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.3 apply standard methods of mathematical physics, in particular mathematical analysis and linear algebra and corresponding numerical methods
2.4 adapt available models to new experimental data
3. MAKING JUDGEMENTS
3.2 develop a personal sense of responsibility, given the free choice of elective/optional courses

LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
Upon successful completion of the course student will be able to:
* Quantify energy diatomic molecules ;
* Quantitatively determine the entropy of transition of plastic crystals ;
* Qualitatively describe the vibrational spectra of molecules in different phases ;
* Qualitatively describe molecular interactions and their importance in human senses ( eg smell )

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Quantization Hamiltonian method Podolski with examples . Solving rotational - vibrational Hamiltonian of diatomic molecules ( 2 hours ) .
Examples of rotary spectra , determining the rotational constants from observed spectra ( 2 hours ) .
The anharmonic corrections in the vibration problem , comparison of classical and quantum harmonic oscillator . ( 2 hours )
Arrangement in condensed phases : examples of plastic , liquid and glassy crystals . The entropy of the phase transition ( 2 hours ) .
The definition of internal vibrational coordinates, examples of rigid and flexible molecules . Laboratory work ( 2 hours ) .
The theory of smell , the impact of the electron - phonon coupling strength of the smell of certain molecules ( 2 hours ) .
Each student receives a paper which replaces the written exam , and comes to the consultation ( 4 hours ) .

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS:
If three or more students enrolled in the course , held lectures . If there are two or one / one , each student receives a paper which replaces the written exam , and comes to the weekly briefings .

GRADING AND ASSESSING THE WORK OF STUDENTS:
he condition for passing the exam is a seminar work , solving two problems in writing and replying to the oral examination .
The share of these obligations in the formation of marks is
* 30 % points seminar
* 30 % of points solved written exam
* 40 % points oral exam
