Chemistry 433 Course Web Site | http://www.missouri.edu/~chemrg/RG_T_WS98.html |
There will be 43 scheduled lectures which includes an
introduction (on the first day of class, Monday, January 12) and two
one-hour-exams. The following
course schedule is preliminary and I might lengthen or shorten parts of
the course as I see fit depending on feedback. This schedule
provides primarily the sequence of the material we will cover. Suggested
reading and exercises & self-study together with project information will
be specified in the last two columns. Self-study assignments will
be added as the semester progresses. Try to read some of the literature
listed on the
Computational Chemistry Literature
List
before the lecture on the topic. The Literature List is password
protected. The password can be obtained by anybody (e.g. the public) from
the instructor upon request via email.
