Applied Computational Physics

Joseph F. Boudreau and Eric. S. Swanson

Abstract

Applied Computational Physics describes methods for solving a vast array of classical and quantum mechanical scientific problems while stressing modern computational paradigms for achieving these solutions. The text develops computational techniques, numerical algorithms, and physics applications in parallel. The goal of the book is to provide students of physics with essential and modern computational skills and to increase the confidence with which they write computer programs within their problem domain. Hundreds of original problems reinforce programming skills and increase the ability to ... More

Keywords: C++, object-oriented programming, scientific computing, Monte Carlo methods, numerical methods, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics
