Mathematics for Physical Chemistry, Third Edition, is the ideal text for students and physical chemists who want to sharpen their mathematics skills. It can help prepare the reader for an undergraduate course, serve as a supplementary text for use during a course, or serve as a reference for graduate students and practicing chemists. The text concentrates on applications instead of theory, and, although the emphasis is on physical chemistry, it can also be useful in general chemistry courses. The Third Edition includes new exercises in each chapter that provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self-study. The first ten chapters are constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics, with a gradual progression into more advanced material. The final chapter discusses mathematical topics needed in the analysis of experimental data. * Numerous examples and problems interspersed throughout the presentations * Each extensive chapter contains a preview, objectives, and summary * Includes topics not found in similar books, such as a review of general algebra and an introduction to group theory * Provides chemistry specific instruction without the distraction of abstract concepts or theoretical issues in pure mathematics

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!

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

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.

Dieses Lehrbuch wendet sich an Studenten der Physik, der Physikalischen Chemie und der Theoretischen Chemie. Aufbauend auf Grundkenntnissen der Atom- und Quantenphysik vemitteln die Autoren den Stoff, der zum Grundwissen eines jeden Physikstudenten gehört. Für den Studenten der Chemie bedeuten die in diesem Buch vorgestellten Konzepte das theoretische Grundgerüst für sein Fachgebiet. Dieses Gerüst befähigt ihn, den ungeheuren Erfahrungsschatz der Chemie auf wenige Prinzipien, nämlich die der Quantentheorie, zurückzuführen. Zwei untrennbar miteinander verknüpfte Themenbereiche werden behandelt: die chemische Bindung und die physikalischen Eigenschaften der Moleküle. Erstmals behandelt ein Lehrbuch die Molekülphysik und Quantenchemie in dieser Kombination mit der Zielsetzung, das Grundlegende und Typische herauszuarbeiten, und so dem Studenten einen Überblick über dieses so wichtige und reizvolle Gebiet zu vermitteln. Darüber hinaus vermittelt das Buch Ausblicke auf neue Entwicklungen, etwa die Erforschung der Photosynthese, die Physik supramolekularer Funktionseinheiten und die molekulare Mikroelektronik.
