Computational Physics. Computional physics involves the use of computer calculations and simulations to solve physical problems. This book describes computational methods used in theoretical physics with emphasis on condensed matter applications. Coverage begins with an overview of the wide variety of topics and algorithmic approaches studied in this book. The next chapters concentrate on electronic structure calculations, presenting the Hartree-Fock and Density Functional formalisms, and band structure methods. Later chapters discuss molecular dynamics simulations and Monte Carlo methods in classical and quantum physics, with applications to condensed matter and particle field theories.

First published in , this second edition describes the computational methods used in theoretical physics. New sections were added to cover finite element methods and lattice Boltzmann simulation, density functional theory, quantum molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulation, and diagonalisation of one-dimensional quantum systems.

It covers many different areas of physics research and different computational methodologies, including computational methods such as Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics, various electronic structure methodologies, methods for solving partial differential equations, and lattice gauge theory. Throughout the book the relations between the methods used in different fields of physics are emphasised. Several new programs are described and can be downloaded from www. The book requires a background in elementary programming, numerical analysis, and field theory, as well as undergraduate knowledge of condensed matter theory and statistical physics.

It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in theoretical, computational and experimental physics. Read more Read less.

It gives you good exercises and hints for writing effective programs. It is challenging but worth the time I would say. I had a high level computing physics course and this book was a great reference both for DFT and Monte Carlo which I primarily used it for. Very fast service from UK. In my sincere opinion, is by far the worst book on C. I have bought, and I do not recommend it, at least for those who want to learn C. Ok, ok, it can be considered a "high level" book maybe adequate for graduate courses , but I think that it lacks the main points on "pure" C.

The reason for the two stars is because I am a condensed matter physicist, and therefore the book will at least serve as an additional reference on this subject. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
