By the time chemistry students are ready to study physical chemistry, they’ve completed mathematics courses through calculus. But a strong background in mathematics doesn’t necessarily equate to knowledge of how to apply that mathematics to solving physicochemical problems. In addition, in-depth understanding of modern concepts in physical chemistry requires knowledge of mathematical concepts and techniques beyond introductory calculus, such as differential equations, Fourier series, and Fourier transforms. This results in many physical chemistry instructors spending valuable lecture time teaching mathematics rather than chemistry. Barrante presents both basic and advanced mathematical techniques in the context of how they apply to physical chemistry. Many problems at the end of each chapter test students’ mathematical knowledge. Designed and priced to accompany traditional core textbooks in physical chemistry, Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry provides students with the tools essential for answering questions in thermodynamics, atomic/molecular structure, spectroscopy, and statistical mechanics.

Dieser Band Numerische Mathematik hat Prinzipien des numerischen Rechnens, numerische lineare Algebra und Näherungsmethoden in der Analysis zum Inhalt. Der Begriff der Approximation zieht sich als roter Faden durch den gesamten Text. Die Betonung liegt dabei weniger auf der Bereitstellung möglichst vieler Algorithmen als vielmehr auf der Vermittlung mathematischer Überlegungen, die zur Konstruktion von Verfahren führen. Jedoch werden auch der algorithmische Aspekt und entsprechende Effizienzbetrachtungen gebührend berücksichtigt. Durch den umfangreichen dargebotenen Stoff ist das Buch nicht nur für eine einsemestrige Vorlesung interessant, sondern auch als studienbegleitendes Handbuch geeignet. Besondere Erwähnung verdienen die zahlreichen historischen Anmerkungen sowie die motivierenden Erklärungen und aufgezeigten Querverbindungen zu anderen Themen. Besonders zur intensiven Prüfungsvorbereitung geeignet!

This is a new edition of the combined Volumes I and II of the hugely successful Tutorial Chemistry Texts Maths for Chemists. The new edition will continue to provide an excellent resource for all undergraduate chemistry students particularly focussing on the needs of students who may not have studied mathematics beyond GCSE level (or equivalent). The text is introductory in nature and adopts a sympathetic approach for students who need support and understanding in working with the diverse mathematical tools required in a typical chemistry degree course. The topics covered include: power series, which are used to formulate alternative representations of functions and are important in model building in chemistry; complex numbers and complex functions, which appear in quantum chemistry, spectroscopy and crystallography; matrices and determinants used in the solution of sets of simultaneous linear equations and in the representation of geometrical transformations used to describe molecular symmetry characteristics; and vectors which allow the description of directional properties of molecules. New material includes a new chapter on Statistics and Error Analysis. Ideal for the needs of undergraduate chemistry students, Maths for Chemists is a comprehensive text consisting of short, single topic or modular texts concentrating on the fundamental areas of chemistry taught in undergraduate science courses. It provides a concise account of the basic principles underlying a given subject, embodying an independent-learning philosophy and including worked examples.

This book introduces basic concepts of mathematical physics to chemists. Many textbooks and monographs of mathematical physics may appear daunting to them. Unlike other, related books, however, this one contains a practical selection of material, particularly for graduate and undergraduate students majoring in chemistry. The book first describes quantum mechanics and electromagnetism, with the relation between the two being emphasized. Although quantum mechanics covers a broad field in modern physics, the author focuses on a hydrogen(like) atom and a harmonic oscillator with regard to the operator method. This approach helps chemists understand the basic concepts of quantum mechanics aided by their intuitive understanding without abstract argument, as chemists tend to think of natural phenomena and other factors intuitively rather than only logically. The study of light propagation, reflection, and transmission in dielectric media is of fundamental importance. This book explains these processes on the basis of Maxwell equations. The latter half of the volume deals with mathematical physics in terms of vectors and their transformation in a vector space. Finally, as an example of chemical applications, quantum chemical treatment of methane is introduced, including a basic but essential explanation of Green functions and group theory. Methodology developed by the author will also prove to be useful to physicists.

Some teachers of biochemistry think it positively beneficial for students to struggle with difficult mathematics. I do not number myself among these people, although I have derived much personal pleasure from the study of mathematics and from applying it to problems that interest me in biochemistry. On the contrary, I think that students choose courses in biochemistry out of interest in biochemistry and that they should not be encumbered with more mathematics than is absolutely required for a proper understanding of biochemistry. This of course includes physical chemistry, because a biochemist ignorant of physical chemistry is no biochemist. I have been guided by these beliefs in writing this book. I have laid heavy emphasis on those topics, such as the use of logarithms, that play an important role in biochemistry and often cause problems in teaching; I have ignored others, such as trigonometry, that one can manage without. The proper treatment of statistics has been more difficult to decide. Although it clearly plays an important part in all experi mental sciences, it is usually preferable to treat it as a subject in its own right and not to try to incorporate it into a course of elementary mathematics. In this book, therefore, I have used a few examples from statistics to illustrate more general points, but I have not discussed it for its own sake.

Physical Chemistry for Engineering and Applied Sciences is the product of over 30 years of teaching first-year Physical Chemistry as part of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto. Designed to be as rigorous as compatible with a first-year student’s ability to understand, the text presents detailed step-by-step derivations of the equations that permit the student to follow the underlying logic and, of equal importance, to appreciate any simplifying assumptions made or mathematical tricks employed. In addition to the 600 exercises and end-of-chapter problems, the text is rich in worked non-trivial examples, many of which are designed to be inspiring and thought-provoking. Step-by-step derivation of all equations enables the student to smoothly follow the derivation by sight, and can be understood relatively easily by students with moderate skills and backgrounds in mathematics. Clear and accessible, Physical Chemistry for Engineering and Applied Sciences includes: The answers to all of the 112 worked examples, 99 exercises following many of the worked examples, and 496 end-of-chapter problems Topics not normally seen in introductory physical chemistry textbooks (ionic reaction rates, activities and activity coefficients) or not regularly explained in much detail (electrochemistry, chemical kinetics), with an eye on industrial applications Special appendices that provide detailed explanations of basic integration and natural logarithms for students lacking a background in integral calculus An in-depth chapter on electrochemistry, in which activities and activity coefficients are used extensively, as required for accurate calculations
