## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there,

I'm currently a second year chemistry student in the UK. Since starting my degree I've found myself interested in theoretical/quantum chemistry. I would like to apply for a PhD programme in theoretical chemistry, which follows courses in quantum mechanics/statistical thermodynamics.

I didn't take Maths in school, and would eventually like to work within chemical physics/theoretical chemistry/theoretical physics. I would like to know the main areas of mathematics that I need to focus on, some good texts that could supplement learning, this sort of thing. I'm concerned I'm too far behind!

Regards,

PAT
