Biochemical Thermodynamics: Applications of Mathematica
Biochemical Thermodynamics: Applications of Mathematica
by Robert A. Alberty
  • Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
  • Year: 2006
  • ISBN: 0471757985 (Hardcover)
  • 464 pp
  • Book Includes: CD-ROM
This book provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of biochemical thermodynamics. A sequel to the author's popular Thermodynamics of Biochemical Reactions, it describes how researchers can use Mathematica as a simple and elegant tool to do calculations that were previously impractically complex.

Topics covered include:
  • Thermodynamics of the dissociation of weak acids
  • Apparent equilibrium constants
  • Biochemical reactions at specified temperatures and various pHs
  • Use of matrices in biochemical thermodynamics
  • Oxidoreductase, transferase, hydrolase, and lyase reactions
  • Reactions at 298.15 K
  • Thermodynamics of the binding of ligands by proteins
  • Calorimetry of biochemical reactions

To allow intermingling of text and calculations, this book was written in Mathematica. It comes with a CD-ROM containing the entire book along with macros that help scientists and engineers solve their particular problems. Contents
