Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is the ideal textbook for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students who want to sharpen their mathematics skills while they are enrolled in a physical chemistry course. Solved examples and problems, interspersed throughout the presentation and intended to be worked when met in the text, encourage self-study by students new to the material. The author provides readers with a review of calculus and differential equations that will enable them to succeed in a physical chemistry course. An ideal reference text for practicing chemists as well.
* Completeness: contains all of the mathematics needed in undergraduate physical chemistry
* Clarity: all sentences, examples, and equations have been constructed to make them as clear as possible
* Applications-oriented: Designed for applications of mathematics, not for mathematical theory; written for a chemist who needs to use mathematics, not for a mathematician who needs to study the underlying theory

This is the kind of book that I would have wanted when I was a student in physical chemistry. The mathematics courses that I took were like most such courses--they were taught from the point of view of a mathematician and focused on the mathematical theory rather than on applying the mathematics to a particular field in science. I have tried to include everything in this book that a student of physical chemistry needs to know about mathematics in order to use it as one of his or her most important tools, presented from the point of view of applications.About the Author:
