Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
They should understand the definition of a mathematical group and its properties, to know what mathematical representations mean and how these knowledge can be applied in chemistry for resolving particular tasks. They have to be able to understand the layout of a character table and use it for analysis of molecular vibrations and bonding in molecules. The effect of coordination environment on term splitting should be understood and described when necessary. The students should know how to use the Tanabe-Sugano diagrams for interpretation of electronic absorption spectra of transition metal complexes.
At exams the students can use the Diagram for Determination of Point Group According to Schönflies, the collection of Character tables, Tanabe-Sugano diagrams.
