This sequel to Robert Alberty's Thermodynamics of Biochemical Reactions describes how researchers will find Mathematica a simple and elegant tool, which makes it possible to perform complex calculations that would previously have been impractical. Biochemical Thermodynamics: Applications of Mathematica provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of biochemical thermodynamics using Mathematica to practically resolve thermodynamic issues. Because this tool allows the intermingling of text and calculations, this book has been written in Mathematica and includes a CD-ROM containing the entire book along with macros that help scientists and engineers solve their particular problems.
