Introduction to Computational Physics and Monte Carlo Simulations of Matrix Field Theory
by Badis Ydri
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 350
This book is divided into two parts. In the first part we give an elementary introduction to computational physics consisting of 21 simulations which originated from a formal course of lectures and laboratory simulations. The second part is much more advanced and deals with the problem of how to set up working Monte Carlo simulations of matrix field theories which involve finite dimensional matrix regularizations of noncommutative and fuzzy field theories, fuzzy spaces and matrix geometry.

This course aims to give the student a thorough grounding in the main computational techniques used in modern physics. This is not a text in computing science, nor in programming. It focuses specifically on methods for solving physics problems.
