## Welcome

Welcome to the website for *Mortimer, R: Mathematics for Physical Chemistry, 1st Editionst Edition.*

*Mathematics for Physical Chemistry,* Fourth Edition, includes everything a student of physical chemistry needs to know about mathematics. Unlike other textbooks taught from a mathematician’s point of view and focused on mathematical theory, this book emphasizes the applications of mathematics to physical chemistry. This book is constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics with a gradual progression into more advanced material. It uses a problem-solving approach, an important tool in learning mathematics and physical chemistry. Each chapter begins with a list of principle facts, ideas, and objectives and ends with a list of problems. Solved examples and exercises are interspersed throughout the chapters. This book is an ideal required, supplementary, or self-study textbook for physical chemistry students or reference for graduates, researchers, and practicing chemists.

**Key features:**

- Bridges the gap between theoretical mathematics and the actual use of mathematics in physical chemistry courses
- Focuses on applications, allowing you to begin using the techniques immediately
- Uses plain language for greater clarity and comprehension
- Features illustrations that allow you to visualize problems
- Includes worked examples that provide patterns and help make self study more efficient

**New to this edition:**

- New exercises in each chapter provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self study
- Expanded sections on computer techniques include discussions of Excel and Mathematical
- A solutions manual with answers to all problems is available on our companion website at booksite.elsevier.com/9780124158092
