Summary:  The third edition of this book has been updated so that both advanced physics and advanced chemistry can be overviewed from a modern mathematical perspective in a single integrated book. Nowadays key research arears in physics and chemistry such as materials science, molecular science, and device physics are drawing closer and closer together and becoming more and more mathematical. Hence, while retaining the basic feature, the contents are targeted at graduate and undergraduate students majoring in not only chemistry but also physics and engineering. The book covers topics ranging from classical physics (e.g., electromagnetism and analytical mechanics) to quantum science. The latter topic includes an introduction to the quantum theory of fields as well as standard quantum mechanics and quantum chemistry. Tangible examples help readers to understand abstract concepts about the topics covered. Several major revisions have been made and they contain: (a) constitution of the Dirac equation; (b) quantization of the fields; (c) interaction between the quantum fields; (d) basic formalism related to the extended vector spaces and the transformation properties of the Dirac equation; (e) advanced topics of Lie algebra. The new edition thus supplies chemists, physicists, and engineers with fundamental knowledge and calculation methodology of mathematical physics.
