Essential Mathematics for Nmr and MRI Spectroscopists (Hardcover) (Keith C. Brown)
about this item
Beginning with a review of the important areas of mathematics, this book then covers many of the underlying theoretical and practical aspects of NMR spectroscopy from a maths point of view. Competence in algebra and introductory calculus is needed but all other maths concepts are covered. It will bridge a gap between high level and introductory titles used in NMR spectroscopy. Uniquely, it takes a very careful and pedagogical approach to the mathematics behind NMR. It leaves out very few steps, which distinguishes it from other books in the field.
The author is an NMR laboratory manager and is sympathetic to the frustrations of trying to understand where some of the fundamental equations come from hence his desire to either explicitly derive all equations for the reader or direct them to derivations. This is an essential text aimed at graduate students who are beginning their careers in NMR spectroscopy and laboratory managers if they need an understanding of the theoretical foundations of the technique.
