Drawing on examples from various areas of physics, this textbook introduces the reader to computer-based physics using Fortran® and Matlab®. It elucidates a broad palette of topics, including fundamental phenomena in classical and quantum mechanics, hydrodynamics and dynamical systems, as well as effects in field theories and macroscopic pattern formation described by (nonlinear) partial differential equations. A chapter on Monte Carlo methods is devoted to problems typically occurring in statistical physics.
- Introduces the reader to computer applications in numerous areas of physics.
- Includes Fortran examples, which are also available online.
- Contains exercises with solutions, encouraging self-study.
