Mathematics for Physical Chemistry – Robert G. Mortimer – 3rd Edition


Is the ideal text for students and physical chemists who want to sharpen their 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 instead of theory, and, although the emphasis is on physical , 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 and an introduction to
* Provides chemistry specific instruction without the distraction of abstract concepts or theoretical issues in pure mathematics
