Essential Mathematics for Chemists is ideally suited for students who have a limited mathematical background and who wish to build their confidence in the use of mathematics that is relevant to their chemistry studies. John Gormally has many years' experience of teaching mathematics to chemistry students and has set out specifically to address common difficulties in understanding the subject. Assuming little knowledge of mathematics, this book first introduces basic skills in handling numbers before covering key topics relevant to chemistry including functions, elementary algebraic manipulation, differential and integral calculus and matrix algebra. The order of the chapters reflects the way in which chemistry courses are often structured and relates to both lecture and laboratory courses. Self-test questions are provided within the text and answers are given at the end of each chapter. Together with the numerous worked examples and sets of graded problems provided, these will help students to acquire relevant skills and gain confidence.

Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis, 2nd Edition"" "Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis, "2nd Edition, provides an invaluable introduction to the mathematical tools that undergraduate economists need. The coverage is comprehensive, ranging from elementary algebra to more advanced material, whilst focusing on all the core topics that are usually taught in undergraduate courses on mathematics for economists. FEATURES An intelligent approach to teaching mathematics, based on years of experience. Mathematical rigour and a strong focus on mathematical reasoning. Large selection of worked examples throughout the book. These are not just specific to economics, as most topics are first dealt with from a purely mathematical point of view before providing economic insight. Large number of problems for students to solve. Answers to selected questions included in the back of the book. CHANGES TO THIS EDITION New Chapter 17 on linear programming. All chapters revised and updated. Even more economic examples and problem material added. Extensive resources for students and lecturers on the companion website. 'The book is by far the best choice one can make for a course on mathematics for economists. It is exemplary in finding the right balance between mathematics and economic examples.' Dr. Roelof J. Stroeker, Erasmus University, Rotterdam. 'The writing style is superb. I found that the style of writing promotes interest and manages to allow intuitive understanding whilst not sacrificing mathematical precision and rigour.' Dr. Steven Cook, University of Wales, Swansea Knut Sydsaeter is a Professor of Mathematics in the Economics Department atthe University of Oslo, where, since 1965, he has had extensive experience in teaching mathematics for economists. He has also given graduate courses in dynamic optimization at Berkeley and Gothenborg. He has written and co-authored a number of books, of which several have been translated into many languages.

Essential Mathematics for the Physical Sciences, Volume 1

Homogenous Boundary Value Problems, Fourier Methods, and Special Functions

Physics is expressed in the language of mathematics; it is deeply ingrained in how physics is taught and how it's practiced. A study of the mathematics used in science is thus asound intellectual investment for training as scientists and engineers. This first volume of two is centered on methods of solving partial differential equations (PDEs) and the special functions introduced. Solving PDEs can't be done, however, outside of the context in which they apply to physical systems. The solutions to PDEs must conform to boundary conditions, a set of additional constraints in space or time to be satisfied at the boundaries of the system, that small part of the universe under study. The first volume is devoted to homogeneous boundary-value problems (BVPs), homogeneous implying a system lacking a forcing function, or source function. The second volume takes up (in addition to other topics) inhomogeneous problems where, in addition to the intrinsic PDE governing a physical field, source functions are an essential part of the system. This text is based on a course offered at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and while produced for NPS needs, it will serve other universities well. It is based on the assumption that it follows a math review course, and was designed to coincide with the second quarter of student study, which is dominated by BVPs but also requires an understanding of special functions and Fourier analysis.
