Overview

Teaches the fundamentals of the BASIC programming language by description and example, and presents over 50 chemically oriented BASIC programs that can both teach about the language and be useful in their own right. The first part of the book introduces the reader to programming in the BASIC language. The second part of the book consists of 52 example problems, divided into 44 topics, concerning chemical problems. These problems progress in difficulty in terms of the chemical concepts, mathematical models, and programming operations involved. The reader can work the problems, then copy and run the programs, and compare the results. The given programs can be modified to suit the reader's needs, or new ones be written using the techniques presented in the text.
