A first course in computational physics Computational physics is the study and implementation of numerical algorithms in order to solve problems in physics for which a quantitative theory already exists. It is often regarded as a subdiscipline of theoretical physics but some consider it an intermediate branch between and object-oriented programming object-oriented programming, a modular approach to computer program (software) design. Each module, or object, combines data and procedures (sequences of instructions) that act on the data; in traditional, or procedural, programming the data are separated from the with C++.

Although it is designed primarily to convey as broad an understanding of the entire scientific computing field as possible within a single term course, this text for beginning and intermediate programmers can also be used as a reference. It starts with the fundamental concepts of computer and software architecture and the Dev-C++ programming environment, then proceeds to explain numerical analysis including differential equations and linear algebra, advanced object-oriented programming including program optimization and memory management, and then gives a number of scientific programming examples, including Monte Carlo methods Monte Carlo method
Statistical method of approximating the solution of complex physical or mathematical systems. The method was adopted and improved by John von Neumann and Stanislaw Ulam for simulations of the atomic bomb during the Manhattan Project. and parabolic partial differential equation A parabolic partial differential equation is a type of second-order partial differential equation, describing a wide family of problem in science including heat diffusion and stock option pricing. solvers. Its appendices include useful reference material such as the C++ coding standard. The CD-ROM includes programming and scientific graphics tools.
