Product description


"Landau and Paez′s book would be an excellent choice for a course on computational physics which emphasizes computational methods and programming."
(American Journal of Physics)

From the Back Cover

This second edition increases the universality of the previous edition by providing all its codes in the Java language, whose compiler and development kit are available for free for essentially all operating systems. In addition, the accompanying CD provides many of the same codes in Fortran 95, Fortran 77, and C, for even more universal application, as well as MPI codes for parallel applications. The book also includes new materials on trial–and–error search techniques, IEEE floating point arithmetic, probability and statistics, optimization and tuning in multiple languages, parallel computing with MPI, JAMA the Java matrix library, the solution of simultaneous nonlinear equations, cubic splines, ODE eigenvalue problems, and Java plotting programs.

From the reviews of the first edition:
"Landau and Paez′s book would be an excellent choice for a course on computational physics which emphasizes computational methods and programming." – American Journal of Physics
