About this book

An introduction to the subject, largely based on examples presented with full solutions.

'One of the books strengths is its use of numerous examples that demonstrate how the mathematical methods can be applied ... The book will no doubt promote the future development of geochemistry, and it is strongly recommended.' Eos Transactions, American Geophysical Union 'There is no existing book quite like this: it should be compulsory reading for advanced students, and researchers of geochemistry ... The price offers excellent value for money, for a book that will find itself in use for years to come.' David Pyle, Geological Magazine
