Physical chemistry course outline on intrinsic spin angular momentum.

The lectures will be recorded at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras which is part of the NPTEL program. A major goal of NPTEL is to raise awareness and improve scientific and technological education throughout India by use of multimedia. I will be giving a series of lectures on basic spin theory for chemistry and physics undergraduate students who have a basis in quantum mechanics; know of spin and its importance; and want to go deeper.

Playing a part in India’s drive for multimedia post-secondary education

I have been invited to India this July to give a series of 10 to 15 hours of lectures covering the basic properties of spin. The sponsor is NPTEL—the National Programme On Technology and Enhanced Learning. My course is to be at the upper undergraduate level and I will assume the recipients have had a basic course in quantum mechanics, know about the structure of matter and the importance of the Pauli Exclusion Principle.
