Beginning with an introduction to a numerical solution of Schrö dinger′s Equation the text moves on to discuss pertubation theory, variational calculations, diffusion, dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations and genetic algorithms. Aimed at those new to the field, the book will enable the reader to develop and implement computational methods for the solutions of a range of problems in science.
∗ An accessible introduction covering a range of essential techniques applicable to key problems
∗ Numerous examples, problems and practical–based exercises.
∗ A supplementary website including solutions
This is essential reading for undergraudates taking courses in computational physics, or numerical methods. Also useful to students studying engineering, applied mathematics, computational chemistry and mathematical biology.
