Computational Physics is designed to provide direct experience in the computer modeling of physical systems. The book will also be useful to physicists, engineers, and chemists interested in computer modeling and numerical techniques.

Computational Physics is designed to provide direct experience in the computer modeling of physical systems. Its scope includes the essential numerical techniques needed to "do physics" on a computer. Each of these is developed heuristically in the text, with the aid of simple mathematical illustrations.

Computational Physics is designed to provide direct experience in the computer modeling of physical systems. Its scope includes the essential numerical techniques needed to "do physics" on a computer. Each of these is developed heuristically in the text, with the aid of simple mathematical illustrations. However, the real value of the book is in the eight Examples and Projects, where the reader is guided in applying these techniques to substantial problems in classical, quantum, or statistical mechanics. These problems have been chosen to enrich the standard physics curriculum at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. The book will also be useful to physicists, engineers, and chemists interested in computer modeling and numerical techniques. Although the user-friendly and fully documented programs are written in FORTRAN, a casual familiarity with any other high-level language, such as BASIC, PASCAL, or C, is sufficient. The codes in BASIC and FORTRAN are available on the web at http://www.computationalphysics.info (Please follow the link at the bottom of the page). They are available in zip format, which can be expanded on UNIX, Window, and Mac systems with the proper software. The codes are suitable for use (with minor changes) on any machine with a FORTRAN-77 compatible compiler or BASIC compiler. The FORTRAN graphics codes are available as well. However, as they were originally written to run on the VAX, major modifications must be made to make them run on other machines.

Book explains methods quite well and then has lots of examples written in Fortran. These examples are key as most code is written by modifying previously made code.

Sections of this book are thoroughly obsolete, where they refer to BASIC code. Remember that the text came out in 1985. Yet even then, the choice of BASIC to illustrate such matters as solving Laplace's equation in 2 dimensions was questionable. For computational problems, Fortran was then the main language. While C and Pascal could also have been used.

But perhaps Koonin was writing for a physics student completely unacquainted with any programming. In this case, BASIC as befits its name was indeed the simplest language to learn.

However, the book is still useful today for its advanced examples in physics. Treating cases like Monte Carlo methods for H2, and elliptic partial differential equations. If you are prepared to recode the algorithms.

I was a phd physics student at caltech when Prof. Koonin developed this material - he presented a version of course to undergraduate physics students to run on IBM PC which came with basic - Fortran needed to be purchased.
