Unlike other books of similar theme, concise, but comprehensive, explanations are given in each chapter and step-by-step procedures of solving mathematical problems are also given for quick reference. Many examples allow readers to experience the power of Mathcad in solving chemical engineering problems. The book has chapters on Mathcad fundamentals, solving a single algebraic equation and a system of algebraic equations, curve fitting, integration and differentiation, solving a single ordinary differential equation (ODE) and a system of ODEs, solving a single partial differential equation (PDE) and a system of PDEs, and programming in Mathcad. There are a number of exercise problems at the end of each chapter that allow readers to further expose themselves to various chemical engineering problems. Although Mathcad 13 is the software package chosen by the authors and used throughout the book, most of the features discussed can also be applied using earlier versions of Mathcad. Furthermore, although Mathcad will always evolve into a newer version, most of the contents in this book will be applicable for any subsequent version of Mathcad.

Schon seit langem wurde RICHARD BECKER von Freunden, Schülern und Kollegen bestürmt, seine "Theorie der Wärme" zu schreiben. Gerade diesem Gebiet hatte er seine Liebe und Aufmerksamkeit zugewandt. Das hat wohl daran gelegen, daß hier die Verflechtung des experimentellen Tatbestandes mit theoretischen Gedankengängen besonders innig ist und man daher den gesunden physikalischen Menschenverstand in besonderem Maße benötigt. Diese Art Physik lag ihm sehr und hier fühlte er sich zu Hause. Seine Vor lesungen über Wärme waren berühmt, und so entstand der berechtigte Wunsch, seine Art der Darstellung auch schwarz auf weiß zu besitzen. Nach langem Zureden hat RICHARD BECKER sich endlich vor etwa 5 Jah ren dazu entschlossen. Der Grundriß war bald aufgestellt, aber die Bearbei tung im einzelnen kostete viel Zeit und Mühe. Es war weniger das Auf schreiben und die Formulierung der Tatbestände, die Mühe machte. Das war ofl: genug eine Kleinigkeit. Meist aber gefiel ihm dann die eigene Darstellung nicht mehr. Es war ihm nicht klar, nicht anschaulich, nicht pointiert genug. Und dann wurde umgearbeitet, neu überlegt, zur Probe an der Tafel erzählt, so lange, bis es ihm wieder gefiel. Jeder Gedanke in diesem Buch ist so nach den verschiedensten Richtungen hin neu überlegt, verworfen und wieder aufgenommen worden. Auch als die erste Korrektur schon im Druck vorlag, gefiel ihm wieder manches nicht mehr, aber da war es zu spät. So reifl:e das Werk unter manch heimlichem Seufzer seiner Mitarbeiter heran und war Ende 1954 druckfertig.
