Mathematics for Physical Chemistry is the ideal supplementary text for practicing chemists and students who want to sharpen their mathematics skills while enrolled in general through physical chemistry courses. This book specifically emphasizes the use of mathematics in the context of physical chemistry, as opposed to being simply a mathematics text. This 4e includes new exercises in each chapter that provide practice in a technique immediately after discussion or example and encourage self-study. The early chapters are constructed around a sequence of mathematical topics, with a gradual progression into more advanced material. A final chapter discusses mathematical topics needed in the analysis of experimental data. Numerous examples and problems interspersed throughout the presentations Each extensive chapter contains a preview and objectives Includes topics not found in similar books, such as a review of general algebra and an introduction to group theory Provides chemistry-specific instruction without the distraction of abstract concepts or theoretical issues in pure mathematics

This textbook deals with fourier analysis applications in optics, and in particular with its applications to diffraction, imaging, optical data processing, holography and optical communications. Fourier analysis is a universal tool that has found application within a wide range of areas in physics and engineering and this third edition has been written to help your students understand the complexity of a subject that can be challenging to grasp at times. Chapters cover foundations of scalar diffraction theory, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction moving onto Wave-Optics Analysis of Coherent Optical Systems and Wavefront Modulation. Joseph Goodman’s work in Electrical Engineering has been recognised by a variety of awards and honours, so his text is able to guide students through a comprehensive introduction into Fourier Optics.

This book reminds students in junior, senior and graduate level courses in physics, chemistry and engineering of the math they may have forgotten (or learned imperfectly) which is needed to succeed in science courses. The focus is on math actually used in physics, chemistry and engineering, and the approach to mathematics begins with 12 examples of increasing complexity, designed to hone the student's ability to think in mathematical terms and to apply quantitative methods to scientific problems. By the author's design, no problems are included in the text, to allow the students to focus on their science course assignments. - Highly accessible presentation of fundamental mathematical techniques needed in science and engineering courses - Use of proven pedagogical techniques develolped during the author’s 40 years of teaching experience - illustrations and links to reference material on World-Wide-Web - Coverage of fairly advanced topics, including vector and matrix algebra, partial differential equations, special functions and complex variables
