I'm thinking of taking ordinary differential equations after i finish multivariate calculus. What additional courses beyond ordinary differential equations should I take?

My school offers courses in complex analysis, real analysis, and partial differential equations. Will they be useful? Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center , please edit the question. In my experience, the most helpful advanced math courses you can take for Physical Chemistry are Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. Multivariate Calculus is helpful, but not as helpful as Diff. Linear Algebra is very helpful for quantum chemistry, Diff. In the comments you mentioned several different Diff. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Again, an emphasis in the chapter on integral calculus has been placed an using integral tables, and, in keeping with the original intent of the book, mathematical rigor was kept at a minimum, giving way to intuition where possible.

The latter half of the text covers important material normally not covered in prerequisite courses, but, for the most part, at an introductory level.

For example, the chapter on differential equations emphasizes the solution of second-order linear differential equations with constant coefficients, common to many simple problems in wave mechanics. Also, as in the second edition, sections on the series method of solving differential equations are included. The sections on Fourier series and Fourier transforms have been expanded in this edition to include discrete Fourier transforms and well as continuous Fourier transforms. Discrete Fourier transforms are important in many areas of spectroscopy, since they can be handled by digital computers.

Finally, the chapter on numerical methods has been completely revised. In the second edition, we concentrated on writing programs using BASIC to do the numerical calculations.

Thus, the new chapter concentrates on using a spreadsheet to do many standard numerical calculations, such as numerical integration, fitting curves to experimental data, and finding discrete Fourier transforms of functions. As I mentioned in the Preface to the second edition, a text such as this could not be a success without the contributions of a number of people. I also would like to thank Professor John Wheeler of the University of California, San Diego, for finding a serious error in one of the examples in the chapter on infinite series in the second edition that survived from the first edition.

Finally, I wish to thank my son, Stephen Barrante, who designed the cover for this edition, my wife Marlene, and our family for their patience and encouragement during the preparation of this book. I welcome comments on the text and ask that any comments or errors found be sent to me at jrbarrante aol.
