Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is the perfect resource for students who need to refresh themselves on the algebra and calculus required to understand thermodynamics, atomic and molecular structure, spectroscopy, and statistical mechanics. Designed to supplement all textbooks of physical chemistry, this book will help today's physical chemistry students succeed in their course. This book features:
  • Introductory chapters that deal with coordinate systems, functions and graphs, and the use of logarithms.
  • Chapters on differential and integral calculus.
  • A chapter of mathematical methods in the laboratory, including error analysis, propagation of errors, linear regression calculations, and preparing graphs.
  • An introduction to differential equations.
  • A chapter illustrating the use of Fourier series and Fourier transforms.
  • Problems at the end of each chapter, with answers to all problems in an appendix.
New to this edition:
  • A completely revised chapter on Numerical Methods and the Use of the Computer that illustrates how to complete calculations using Microsoft Excel.

Synopsis:

A how to do it review and learn book on advanced mathematics necessary to physical chemistry. Coordinate systems, functions and graphs, logarithms, differential calculus, integral calculus, infinite series, differential equations, scalars and vectors, matrices and determinants, operators, numerical methods and the use of the computer, and mathematical methods in the laboratory. Educators, Technicians, and other professionals using mathematics in physical chemistry.
