The essential point in computational physics is the systematic application of numerical techniques in place of, and in addition to, analytical methods, in order to render accessible to computation as large a part of physical reality as possible.

Contents: Introduction; The Classical Few-Body Problem; Partial Differential Equations;The classical N-body problem; Integration methods; Percolation; Magnetic systems; The quantum one-body problem; The quantum N body problem; and more.

This is an introduction to mathematical methods for solving hard mathematics problems that arise in the sciences -- physical, biological and social. Our aim therefore is to teach how computer simulations and analytical calculations can be combined.
by Morten Hjorth-Jensen - University of Oslo
These notes should train you in an algorithmic approach to problems in the sciences, represented here by the unity of three disciplines, physics, mathematics and informatics. This trinity outlines the emerging field of computational physics.
