The Chemistry Maths Book provides a complete course companion suitable for students at all levels. All the most useful and important topics are covered, with numerous examples of applications in chemistry and the physical sciences.
Taking a clear, straightforward approach, the book develops ideas in a logical, coherent way, allowing students progressively to build a thorough working understanding of the subject.
Topics are organized into three parts: algebra, calculus, differential equations, and expansions in series; vectors, determinants and matrices; and numerical analysis and statistics. The extensive use of examples illustrates every important concept and method in the text, and are used to demonstrate applications of the mathematics in chemistry and several basic concepts in physics. The exercises at the end of each chapter, are an essential element of the development of the subject, and have been designed to give students a working understanding of the material in the text.

`Review from previous edition It seems well suited both for its stated purpose and as a “brush-up” book for undergraduates, graduate students, and others. The mathematics are carried out briskly and with very little dressing … there is much material to cover here and it works well through
Steiner’s particularly lucid presentation. The notion is standard and clear … I am impressed with this book, I am sure that it will remain open on my desk and will become well worn in short order.
