Applying Maths in the Chemical and Biomolecular Sciences

An example-based approach

Godfrey Beddard

  • Extensive use of applied examples shows how numerical and mathematical tools are used in real research, demonstrating to the student the importance of maths to their subject.
  • Integrates the use of computer software to solve mathematical problems, mirroring the approaches taken by researchers.
  • Dynamic style of delivery uses numerous problems (all with fully worked-through solutions) and worked examples to encourage the reader to work through and apply the mathematical tools for themselves.
  • The questions in each chapter are mostly science-based, illustrating to the reader the kinds of problems that are likely to be met by a scientist, and giving the book an important real-life perspective.
  • MAPLE is used throughout the text to perform computer algebra, with examples of simple calculations, and algorithms for more complicated ones.
  • A MAPLE-to-Mathematica conversion table (available in the Online Resource Centre) allows flexibility of use with this alternative software package.
  • Online Resource Centre features additional resources for both lecturers and students, enhancing the value of the text as a teaching and learning tool.
