## Quantum Mechanics of Atoms and Molecules

A complete set of lecture slides for an upper-division undergraduate course on the quantum mechanics
of atoms and molecules. Topics covered include time-independent and time-dependent perturbation
theory, the variational principle, the hydrogen atom, the helium atom, the hydrogen
molecule ion, the hydrogen molecule, Hartree theory, and periodic systems.
