Publisher: John von Neumann Institute for Computing 2008
Number of pages: 153
This work is focused on the application of multigrid methods to particle simulation methods. Particle simulation is important for a broad range of scientific fields, like biophysics, astrophysics or plasma physics, to name a few. In these fields computer experiments play an important role, either supporting real experiments or replacing them.

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.

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.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter.
