DESCRIPTION
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 essential principles, the book builds the student's confidence by leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way from basic algebra to quantum mathematics. Opening with an introduction to the 'language' of maths and fundamental 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 and on to quantum mathematics. With its modular structure, the book presents material in short, manageable sections to keep the content as accessible and readily digestible as possible.
REVIEWS
The new edition of Maths for Chemistry extends, expands and improves on the excellent first edition. Changes include new chapters covering more introductory material as well as more advanced material, making this the most comprehensive mathematics text book specifically written for chemists that I have seen. REviews, The Higher Education Academy UK Physical Sciences Centre The book is well written throughout and has an admirable step-by-step approach to teaching Chemistry World Maths for Chemistry is the best mathematical toolkit currently available to chemists.

AUTHOR INFORMATION
Revd Dr Paul Monk is Team Vicar at Medlock Head Parish in Oldham and was Senior Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Materials at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, where he lectured and researched since 1991. Dr Monk gained a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry and a PhD on electrochemistry from the University of Exeter. His research investigates electrochromism and the development of electrochromic materials, a subject area in which he has published over 40 journal articles and several monographs. He is the author of two textbooks, Electroanalytical Chemistry: Principles and Fundamental Applications (Wiley, 2001); and Physical Chemistry - Exploring our Chemical World (Wiley, 2004). Lindsey J. Munro received both an MA in Natural Sciences and a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry from the University of Cambridge (Downing College). Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at the University of Pittsburgh and in industry in Switzerland followed. After having compared life as a researcher in both industry and universities, she opted for the freedom of academia and returned home to start life as a lecturer at the Manchester Metropolitan University. She currently lectures in Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics, whilst pursuing her research into understanding flavour using computational chemistry.
