An ideal supplementary text for any physical chemistry course. This includes junior/senior level undergraduate courses in introductory chemistry as well as graduate courses in quantum chemistry, kinetics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, or spectroscopy. Many of today's students find themselves poorly prepared mathematically for their physical chemistry courses. This unique text is for them. This text helps students to recall the math they have learned, to apply mathematics to solve chemical problems, and to acquire a fuller set of mathematical skills necessary for such applications. Using an abundance of fully-worked examples, it shows step-by-step how to directly apply mathematics to physical chemistry problems. It offers full-chapter coverage of many important topics relegated to appendices in other texts, provides a full chapter on numerical methods and computer programming, and covers key areas of advanced mathematics.
