By the time chemistry students are ready to study physical chemistry, they’ve completed mathematics courses through calculus. But a strong background in mathematics doesn’t necessarily equate to knowledge of how to apply that mathematics to solving physicochemical problems. In addition, in-depth understanding of modern concepts in physical chemistry requires knowledge of mathematical concepts and techniques beyond introductory calculus, such as differential equations, Fourier series, and Fourier transforms. This results in many physical chemistry instructors spending valuable lecture time teaching mathematics rather than chemistry. Barrante presents both basic and advanced mathematical techniques in the context of how they apply to physical chemistry. Many problems at the end of each chapter test students’ mathematical knowledge. Designed and priced to accompany traditional core textbooks in physical chemistry, Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry provides students with the tools essential for answering questions in thermodynamics, atomic/molecular structure, spectroscopy, and statistical mechanics.

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

The third edition of Van Kampen's standard work has been revised and updated. The main difference with the second edition is that the contrived application of the quantum master equation in section 6 of chapter XVII has been replaced with a satisfactory treatment of quantum fluctuations. Apart from that throughout the text corrections have been made and a number of references to later developments have been included. From the recent textbooks the following are the most relevant. C.W.Gardiner, Quantum Optics (Springer, Berlin 1991) D.T. Gillespie, Markov Processes (Academic Press, San Diego 1992) W.T. Coffey, Yu.P.Kalmykov, and J.T.Waldron, The Langevin Equation (2nd edition, World Scientific, 2004) * Comprehensive coverage of fluctuations and stochastic methods for describing them * A must for students and researchers in applied mathematics, physics and physical chemistry

On most campuses the course in physical chemistry has a reputation for difficulty. It is not, nor should it be, the easiest course available; but to keep the matter in perspective it must be said that the IQ of a genius is not necessary for understanding the subject. The greatest stumbling block that can be erected in the path of learning physical chemistry is the notion that memorizing equations is a sensible way to proceed. Memory should be reserved for the fundamentals and important definitions. Equations are meant to be understood, not to be memorized. In physics and chemistry an equation is not a jumbled mass of symbols, but is a statement of a relation between physical quantities. As you study keep a pencil and scratch paper handy. Play with the final equation from a derivation. If it expresses pressure as a function of temperature, turn it around and express the temperature as a function of pressure. Sketch the functions so that you can "see" the variation. How does the sketch look if one of the parameters is changed? Read physical meaning into the various terms and the algebraic signs which appear in the equation. If a simplifying assumption has been made in the derivation, go back and see what would happen if that assumption were omitted. Apply the derivation to a different special case. Invent problems of your own involving this equation and solve them. Juggle the equation back and forth until you understand its meaning. In the first parts of the book much space is devoted to the meaning of equations; I hope that I have not been too long-winded about it, but it is important to be able to interpret the mathematical statement in terms of its physical content. By all means try to keep a good grasp on the fundamental principles that are being applied; memorize them and above all understand them. Take the time to understand the methods that are used to attack a problem. In Appendix I there is a brief recapitulation of some of the most important mathematical ideas and methods that are used. If any of these things are unfamiliar to you, take the time to review them in a mathematics text. Once the relations between variables have been established, the algebra and calculus are simply mechanical devices, but they should be respected as precision tools. If problems baffle you, learn the technique of problem solving. The principles contained in G. Polya's book, How to Solve It, have helped many of my students.* It is available as a paperback and is well worth studying. Work as many problems as possible. Numerical answers to all problems can be found in Appendix VII. Make up your own problems as often as possible. Watching your teacher perform will not make you into an actor; problem solving will. To aid in this, get a good "scientific" calculator (the serious student will want a programmable one with continuous memory) and learn how to use it to the limit of its capability. Reading the instructions will save you hundreds of hours! Finally, don't be put off by the reputation for difficulty. Many students have enjoyed learning physical chemistry. * G .

Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry Third Edition The first IUPAC Manual of Symbols and Terminology for Physicochemical Quantities and Units (the "Green Book") of which this is a successor, was published in 1969, with the objective of 'securing clarity and precision, and wider agreement in the use of symbols, by chemists in different countries, among physicists, chemists and engineers, and by editors of scientific journals'. Subsequent revisions have taken account of many developments in the field, culminating in the major extension and revision represented by the 1988 edition under the title Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry. This third edition (2007) is a further revision of the material which reflects the experience of the contributors and users with the previous editions. The book has been systematically brought up to date and new sections have been added. It strives to improve the exchange of scientific information between different disciplines in the international pursuit of scientific research. In a rapidly expanding scientific literature where each discipline has a tendency to retreat into its own jargon, this book attempts to provide a compilation of widely used terms and symbols from many sources together with brief understandable definitions and explanations of best practice. Tables of important fundamental constants and conversion factors are included. Precise scientific language encoded by appropriate definitions of quantities, units and symbols is crucial for the international exchange in science and technology, with important consequences for modern industrial economy. This is the definitive guide for scientists, science publishers and organizations working across a multitude of disciplines requiring internationally approved nomenclature in the area of Physical Chemistry.

What use is physical chemistry to the student of biochemistry and biology? This central question is answered in this book mainly through the use of worked examples and problems. The book starts by introducing the laws of thermodynamics, and then uses these laws to derive the equations relevant to the student in dealing with chemical equilibria (including the binding of small molecules to proteins), properties of solutions, acids and bases, and oxidation-reduction processes. The student is thus shown how a knowledge of thermodynamic qualities makes it possible to predict whether, and how, a reaction will proceed. Thermodynamics, however, gives no information about how fast a reaction will happen. The study of the rates at which processes occur (kinetics) forms the second main theme of the book. This section poses and answers questions such as `how is the rate of a reaction affected by temperature, pH, ionic strength, and the nature of the reactants? These same ideas are then shown to be useful in the study of enzyme-catalysed reactions.

Appropriate for junior-level courses, the modernized new edition of Halpern and McBane’s physical chemistry lab manual offers an exceptional variety of tested and proven experiments—as well as detailed theoretical background material and clearly stated procedural objectives to help students understand the context and purpose of each procedure. The manual is well suited to accompany Atkins/de Paula, Physical Chemistry, Eighth Edition, but it works equally well as a stand-alone manual or with any other text. In addition, the labs represent challenging, quantitative determinations of properties that can be checked against literature values; and, in many cases, they demonstrate the advantages that the computer offers in data acquisition, data analysis, and also in the computation of physical chemical properties.

This text presents physical chemistry as a coherent whole, rather than a set of disjointed topics, and shows how the subject relates to the rest of chemistry and physics. It emphasizes physical models as well as mathematical techniques, along with both rigorous and approximate (order-of-magnitude) problem-solving. Designed to progress beyond a numerical answer, problems expose the physical significance of the situation and teach students how to pose a problem in the first place. In addition, modern molecular concepts, currently unanswered problems in research, experimental techniques, and new directions in the field are introduced wherever appropriate. An orderly progression of thermodynamics carefully builds students' knowledge without covering too much too early on. Chemical reaction thermodynamics is covered in Chapter 7, after the culmination of thermodynamics, with advanced material in Chapter 10.
