Module overview

The module provides advanced mathematics training necessary for students planning to specialise in physical chemistry, computational chemistry, spectroscopy, data sicence and quantitative finance. It also aims to provide training of rational reasoning skills in a subject-independent way: studying mathematical proofs and derivations introduces a more rigorous logical system than practical skills and applied training alone. In particular:

  • Basic linear algebra (spaces, operators, matrices)
  • Ordinary differential equations (uniform, non-uniform, 1st and 2nd order)
  • Basic pharmacokinetics modelling
  • Integration of functions of multiple variables
  • Polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinates
  • Algebraic foundations of quantum theory
  • Basic partial differential equations
  • Full solution of the Schrödinger equation for the hydrogen atom
  • Definition and applications of Fourier transform
