Chemistry and physics share a common mathematical foundation. From elementary calculus to vector analysis and group theory, Mathematics for Chemistry and Physics aims to provide a comprehensive reference for students and researchers pursuing these scientific fields. The book is based on the authors many classroom experience.
Designed as a reference text, Mathematics for Chemistry and Physics will prove beneficial for students at all university levels in chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, and theoretical biology. Although this book is not computer-based, many references to current applications are included, providing the background to what goes on "behind the screen" in computer experiments.
"Chemistry and physics studies are very appealing to many students until they realize that they should have the necessary math skills to the understanding of chemistry and physics. I think that the book of Professor G. Turrell entitled "Mathematics for Physics and Chemistry " provides students with the mathematical bases that will help them to conduct their studies in an optimal conditions. The various chapters of the book introduces in pedagogical way important mathematical tools such as matrix, derivative, integral, differential equations with an illustration of the close interdependence between chemistry, physics and mathematics. I use this book for my own courses and I recommend this book for students." --Professor Nacer Idrissi (Lille, France)
