# Mathematics for Chemistry

This interactive electronic textbook in the form of Maple worksheets comprises two parts.

Part I, Mathematics for Chemistry, is supposed to cover all mathematics that an instructor of chemistry might hope and expect that his students would learn, understand and be able to apply as a result of sufficient courses typically, but not exclusively, presented in departments of mathematics. Its nine chapters include (0) a summary and illustration of useful Maple commands, (1) arithmetic, algebra and elementary functions, (2) plotting, descriptive geometry, trigonometry, series, complex functions, (3) differential calculus of one variable, (4) integral calculus of one variable, (5) multivariate calculus, (6) linear algebra including matrix, vector, eigenvector, vector calculus, tensor, spreadsheet, (7) differential and integral equations, and (8) probability, distribution, treatment of laboratory data, linear and non-linear regression and optimization.

Part II presents mathematical topics typically taught within chemistry courses, including (9) chemical equilibrium, (10) group theory, (11) graph theory, (12a,b,c) introduction to quantum mechanics and quantum chemistry, (13) optical molecular spectrometry, (14) applications of Fourier transforms in chemistry including electron diffraction, x-ray diffraction, microwave spectra, infrared and Raman spectra and nuclear-magnetic-resonance spectra, (15) advanced chemical kinetics, and (16) dielectric and magnetic properties of chemical matter.

Also included in this collection are an essay on Teaching Mathematics to Chemistry Students with Symbolic Computation and a periodic chart of the chemical elements incorporating various
data on elemental properties.
