Courses

Statistical thermodynamics

This course enables the acquisition of basic concepts in statistical thermodynamics including the Boltzmann distribution law, partition functions, ensembles, calculations of thermodynamic properties, Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac statistics, metals, and applications.

Methods in spectroscopy and dynamics

We will review modern technique for the determination of structure and dynamics in chemistry. Recent developments in spectroscopy as well as methods that target the fundamentals of chemical reactions will be discussed, and applications will be studied.

Seminars in Physical Chemistry (1)

Students attend the Physical Chemistry seminars to become familiar with current topics in Physical Chemistry and broaden their horizon beyond their own field. The course work involves essays, summarizing the lectures and placing them in the broader context of the respective field.

General physics : thermodynamics

Give the student the basic notions that will allow him or her to have a better understanding of physical phenomena, such as the mechanic of point masses. Acquire the capacity to analyse quantitatively the consequences of these effects with appropriate theoretical tools.
