Mathematical skills and concepts lie at the heart of chemistry, yet they are an aspect of the subject that students fear the most.Maths for Chemistry recognizes the reality of chemical education today, and the challenges faced by many students in equipping themselves with the maths skills necessary to gain a full understanding of chemistry. Working from basic yet fundamental principles, the book builds the student's confidenceby leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way.Opening with an introduction to the 'language' of maths and essential rules of algebra, the book goes on to cover powers, indices, logs and exponential functions, graphical functions, and trigonometry, before leading the student through both differentiation and integration. With its modular structure, the book presents material in short, manageable sections to keep the content as accessible and readily digestible as possible. Maths for Chemistry is the perfect introduction to the essential mathematical concepts which all chemistry students should master.Online Resource Centre:The companion web site features:For lecturers (password-protected):DT Figures from the book available to download, to facilitate lecture preparationDT Solutions to end of chapter problems, to aid assessment

This is a new edition of the combined Volumes I and II of the hugely successful Tutorial Chemistry Texts Maths for Chemists. The new edition will continue to provide an excellent resource for all undergraduate chemistry students particularly focussing on the needs of students who may not have studied mathematics beyond GCSE level (or equivalent). The text is introductory in nature and adopts a sympathetic approach for students who need support and understanding in working with the diverse mathematical tools required in a typical chemistry degree course. The topics covered include: power series, which are used to formulate alternative representations of functions and are important in model building in chemistry; complex numbers and complex functions, which appear in quantum chemistry, spectroscopy and crystallography; matrices and determinants used in the solution of sets of simultaneous linear equations and in the representation of geometrical transformations used to describe molecular symmetry characteristics; and vectors which allow the description of directional properties of molecules. New material includes a new chapter on Statistics and Error Analysis. Ideal for the needs of undergraduate chemistry students, Maths for Chemists is a comprehensive text consisting of short, single topic or modular texts concentrating on the fundamental areas of chemistry taught in undergraduate science courses. It provides a concise account of the basic principles underlying a given subject, embodying an independent-learning philosophy and including worked examples.

John Fetzer’s "Career Management for Chemists" provides ample, common-sense guidance on the key topics such as: Resumés and CVs, Staying Driven & Current, Personal Skills & Traits Networking, Teamwork & Leadership, Speaking & Listening Writing Research Papers, Mentoring, Behavior & Rewards The practical coverage reflects not only his long professional experience but also his insight that, especially in today’s changing workplace, expectations and strategies for career management require constant re-evaluation. Provides real, common-sense, and proven means to enrich and make more rewarding a technical career. Pre-publication comments from colleagues - "Not only the student who is taking his first steps in the scientific world would profit abundantly by mining this book for views and ideas on the different sides of his chosen career. Also the seasoned scientist will be stimulated to scrutinize his own habits and pick up new thoughts, thereby becoming a more skilled instructor of his younger colleagues." J. Andersson, University of Münster, Germany "As one of the international collaborators of Dr. John Fetzer, I want to warmly congratulate him. His efforts nicely summarize very important topics for all who work in scientific activities. But, at the same time, Career Management for Chemists also provides some real insights for many people who are not working in science. This is a nice guidebook on how to enrich our lives and help us to become more successful!! K. Jinno, Toyohashi University of Technology

Computational methods are rapidly becoming major tools of theoretical, pharmaceutical, materials, and biological chemists. Accordingly, the mathematical models and numerical analysis that underlie these methods have an increasingly important and direct role to play in the progress of many areas of chemistry. This book explores the research interface between computational chemistry and the mathematical sciences. In language that is aimed at non-specialists, it documents some prominent examples of past successful cross-fertilizations between the fields and explores the mathematical research opportunities in a broad cross-section of chemical research frontiers. It also discusses cultural differences between the two fields and makes recommendations for overcoming those differences and generally promoting this interdisciplinary work.

Mathematical Problems for Chemistry Students has been compiled and written (a) to help chemistry students in their mathematical studies by providing them with mathematical problems really occurring in chemistry (b) to help practising chemists to activate their applied mathematical skills and (c) to introduce students and specialists of the chemistry-related fields (physicists, mathematicians, biologists, etc.) into the world of the chemical applications. Some problems of the collection are mathematical reformulations of those in the standard textbooks of chemistry, others were taken from theoretical chemistry journals. All major fields of chemistry are covered, and each problem is given a solution. This problem collection is intended for beginners and users at an intermediate level. It can be used as a companion to virtually all textbooks dealing with scientific and engineering mathematics or specifically mathematics for chemists. * Covers a wide range of applications of the most essential tools in applied mathematics * A new approach to a number of classical textbook-problems * A number of non-classical problems are included

Professor John D. Roberts published a highly readable book on Molecular Orbital Calculations directed toward chemists in 1962. That timely book is the model for this book. The audience this book is directed toward are senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students as well as practicing bench chemists who have a desire to develop conceptual tools for understanding chemical phenomena. Although, ab initio and more advanced semi-empirical MO methods are regarded as being more reliable than HMO in an absolute sense, there is good evidence that HMO provides reliable relative answers particularly when comparing related molecular species. Thus, HMO can be used to rationalize electronic structure in 1t-systems, aromaticity, and the shape use HMO to gain insight of simple molecular orbitals. Experimentalists still into subtle electronic interactions for interpretation of UV and photoelectron spectra. Herein, it will be shown that one can use graph theory to streamline their HMO computational efforts and to arrive at answers quickly without the aid of a group theory or a computer program of which the experimentalist has no understanding. The merging of mathematical graph theory with chemical theory is the formalization of what most chemists do in a more or less intuitive mode. Chemists currently use graphical images to embody chemical information in compact form which can be transformed into algebraical sets. Chemical graph theory provides simple descriptive interpretations of complicated quantum mechanical calculations and is, thereby, in-itself-by-itself an important discipline of study.
