Publisher: Green Tea Press 2017
Number of pages: 206
Modeling and Simulation in Python is an introduction to physical modeling using a computational approach. Taking a computational approach makes it possible to work with more realistic models than what you typically see in a first-year physics class, with the option to include features like friction and drag.

Implicit finite difference schemes for solving two dimensional and three dimensional Euler and Navier-Stokes equations will be addressed. The methods are demonstrated in fully vectorized codes for a CRAY type architecture.

This course consists of both numerical methods and computational physics. MATLAB is used to solve various computational math problems. The course is primarily for Math majors and supposes no previous knowledge of numerical analysis or methods.

The purpose of the text is to demonstrate how computers can help deepen our understanding of physics and increase the range of calculations which we can perform. These lecture notes are writen for an undergraduate course on computational physics.
