Buy

Looking for a head start in your undergraduate degree in mathematics? Maybe you've already started your degree and feel bewildered by the subject you previously loved? Don't panic! This friendly companion will ease your transition to real mathematical thinking. Working through the book you will develop an arsenal of techniques to help you unlock the meaning of definitions, theorems and proofs, solve problems, and write mathematics effectively. All the major methods of proof - direct method, cases, induction, contradiction and contrapositive - are featured. Concrete examples are used throughout, and you'll get plenty of practice on topics common to many courses such as divisors, Euclidean algorithms, modular arithmetic, equivalence relations, and injectivity and surjectivity of functions. The material has been tested by real students over many years so all the essentials are covered. With over 300 exercises to help you test your progress, you'll soon learn how to think like a mathematician.

Bioinorganic Photochemistry
Bioinorganic Photochemistry

The majority of enzymes in living cells rely on the presence of a central metal ion or ions, and similarly about 30% of all proteins are metalloproteins, where metals ions sit at the heart of an organic protein matrix. These metal ions are critical to the structure, stability and function of the protein or enzyme, to the point that without them,...
