This book is far beyond the level of an introductory course to the subject as the title of the book implies. This book is not what I expected. It's for students out to learn to write SOFTWARE that runs physics computations.

This book is far beyond the level of an introductory course to the subject as the title of the book implies. The examples are not easy to follow, and are not self paced. Had to use this book for a graduate class and I struggled a lot with it. This book would be much more useful as a reference or refresher for scientific computation experts, but not at all for students.

Written for physics and engineering students, this book covers the different types of computational problems using MATLAB with exercises . Paul L. DeVries, Miami University Javier E. Hasbun, University of West Georgia. Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2011.

Written for physics and engineering students, this book covers the different types of computational problems using MATLAB with exercises developed around problems of physical interest.

This book fills that need. It demonstrates how numerical methods are used to solve the problems that physicists face. Chapters discuss different types of computational problems, with exercises developed around problems of physical interest. Within each chapter, students are lead from discussions of elementary problems and simple numerical approaches through derivations of more complex and sophisticated methods.
