About this book


Computational Physics has undergone rapid development in recent years and has been integrated as a standard part of graduate physics education. This third-year undergraduate and then graduate course designed by W. Kinzel and G. Reents is a supplement to any course in theoretical physics and aims at good techniques for problem-solving using the computer. The computer programs presented in this book are based on Mathematica and C and are written for PCs and Workstations. 40 detailed examples from different physical disciplines together with source files and graphics routines help the student gain thorough experience right from the start.
