This is an undergraduate textbook on physical chemistry published as four separate paperback volumes. It combines a thorough presentation of the theoretical and mathematical aspects of the subject with examples and applications drawn from current industrial and academic research and actual experimental data.
The books closely integrate theoretical chemistry teachings with industrial and laboratory practice, providing a realistic grounding for future practicing chemists and engineers. Each volume includes Mathematica
workbooks on CD-ROM.
