Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To acquaint the student with the fundamentals of the quantum physics and chemistry theory. To clarify the behaviour of the elementary particles and atoms and explain the nature of the chemical bond from the point of view of the quantum theory. After the completion of the course, the student can work with basic operators, is able to define the process of energy calculation of the multi-electron atoms and molecules. Student is also able to explain the fundamentals of the electron and molecular spectra.

Teaching methods

Project work


Předmět navazuje na znalosti studenta ze základních bakalářských kurzů matematiky, fyziky a chemie. Jeho cílem je seznámit studenty se základy nerelativistické kvantové fyziky a chemie a důležitými aplikacemi.
