The purpose of this lecture course: To get the knowledges for understanding the relation between form of molecules and optical data.
This lecture consist of three main subjects
1:Study about the simple model for treating the molecular vibrations
2:Study the relation between group theory and molecular vibrational spectroscopy
3:Understand the molecular structure based on spectroscopic data based on the theoretical model
The ultimate purpose of this lecture is following 2 points:
1:Study about the role of quantum mechanics in the molecular dynamics
2:Based on the basic quantum mechanics combining with group theory, get the knowledges for understanding the relation between molecular structure and spectroscopic data.

Following three points will be evaluated: 1:Advanced knowledges about molecular vibration based on the quantum mechanics, 2:Classification of molecular structures utilizing group theory, 3: Knowledges and techniques necessary for making clear the molecular structure based on spectroscopic data.
Evaluation will be made by the reports about the training problems set in the lecture course and also by final one. The final report (report during class room) will occupy 80 % (20%) of the evaluation.
Basic knowledge about the quantum mechanics is required.
