Description

Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is the ideal supplementary text for practicing chemists and students who want to sharpen their mathematics skills while enrolled in general through physical chemistry courses. This book specifically emphasizes the use of mathematics in the context of physical chemistry, as opposed to being simply a mathematics text.

This 4e includes new exercises in each chapter that provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self-study. The early chapters are constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics, with a gradual progression into more advanced material. A final chapter discusses mathematical topics needed in the analysis of experimental data.

Review Text

"The text is extremely clear and concise delivering exactly what the student needs to know in a pinch - nothing more, nothing less. It is an indispensable resource for any student of physical chemistry." --Gregory S. Engel, Harvard University

"Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is a comprehensive review of many useful mathematical topics...The book would be useful for anyone studying physical chemistry." --Daniel B. Lawson, University of Michigan-Dearborn "The student will derive benefit from the clarity, and the professional from a concise compilation of techniques stressing application rather than theory.. Recommended." --John A. Wass, Scientific Computing and Instrumentation
