Maths for Chemists Volume II: Power Series, Complex Numbers and Linear Algebra builds on the foundations laid in Volume I, and goes on to develop more advanced material. The topics covered include: power series, which are used to formulate alternative representations of functions and are important in model building in chemistry; complex numbers and complex functions, which appear in quantum chemistry, spectroscopy and crystallography; matrices and determinants used in the solution of sets of simultaneous linear equations and in the representation of geometrical transformations used to describe molecular symmetry characteristics; and vectors which allow the description of directional properties of molecules.
