PH253: molecular orbitals

Here's a nice introduction to the variational method and the linear combination of atomic orbitals (LCAO) we were talking about last time. It describes some further approximations that one can use to do calculations on molecular systems, and the level is about the same as our last class (modulo a bit of linear algebra). Those of you in chemistry classes should be able to follow it pretty easily I guess.
