(3 credits) 2 hours lecture, 2 hours lab
This is an introductory course in molecular modelling. The formalism, advantages, and drawbacks of a number of models will be discussed through the study of the shape, symmetry, and properties of inorganic, organic, and biological systems. The lab will reinforce the lecture topics through hands-on computer simulations of various molecular systems, including some chosen by the student.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 3602 or Physics 3602 with a grade of “C-” or better or department consent.
