Written for students, Computational Physics introduces readers to basic numerical techniques and illustrates how to apply them to a variety of problems. The revised second edition expands on both the range of the physics problems treated and the numerical algorithms described. It contains a new chapter on the physics of music and includes several new sections, such as those discussing scaling in phase transitions, coupled nonlinear oscillators, two-dimensional time-dependent Schrodinger equations, real neurons, and cellular automata.
A video containing animations of programs from the book is available.
