This book is an introduction to the computational methods used in physics and other scientific fields. It is addressed to an audience that has already been exposed to the introductory level of college physics, usually taught during the first two years of an undergraduate program in science and engineering. The book starts with very simple problems in particle motion and ends with an in-depth discussion of advanced techniques used in Monte Carlo simulations in statistical mechanics. The level of instruction rises slowly, while discussing problems like the diffusion equation, electrostatics on the plane, quantum mechanics and random walks. The book aims to provide the students with the background and the experience needed in order to advance to high performance computing projects in science and engineering. But it also tries to keep the students motivated by considering interesting applications in physics, like chaos, quantum mechanics, special relativity and the physics of phase transitions. The book and the accompanying software is available for free in electronic form at http://goo.gl/SGUEkM (www.physics.ntua.gr/%7Ekonstant/ComputationalPhysics) and a printed copy can be purchased from lulu.com at http://goo.gl/Pg1zHc (vol II at http://goo.gl/XsSBdP )

This book explains the fundamentals of computational physics and describes the techniques that every physicist should know, such as finite difference methods, numerical quadrature, and the fast Fourier transform. The book offers a complete introduction to the topic at the undergraduate level, and is also suitable for the advanced student or researcher. The book begins with an introduction to Python, then moves on to a step-by-step description of the techniques of computational physics, with examples ranging from simple mechanics problems to complex calculations in quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, statistical mechanics, and more.

Progress in Computational Physics is an e-book series devoted to recent research trends in computational physics. It contains chapters contributed by outstanding experts of modeling of physical problems. The series focuses on interdisciplinary computational perspectives of current physical challenges, new numerical techniques for the solution of mathematical wave equations and describes certain real-world applications. With the help of powerful computers and sophisticated methods of numerical mathematics it is possible to simulate many ultramodern devices, e.g. photonic crystals structures, semiconductor nanostructures or fuel cell stacks devices, thus preventing expensive and longstanding design and optimization in the laboratories. In this book series, research manuscripts are shortened as single chapters and focus on one hot topic per volume. Engineers, physicists, meteorologists, etc. and applied mathematicians can benefit from the series content. Readers will get a deep and active insight into state-of-the art modeling and simulation techniques of ultra-modern devices and problems. The third volume - Novel Trends in Lattice Boltzmann Methods - Reactive Flow, Physicochemical Transport and Fluid-Structure Interaction - contains 10 chapters devoted to mathematical analysis of different issues related to the lattice Boltzmann methods, advanced numerical techniques for physico-chemical flows, fluid structure interaction and practical applications of these phenomena to real world problems.

Multiphase flows, which can involve compressible or incompressible linear or nonlinear, fluids, Are found in all areas of technology, at all length scales and flow regimes. In spite of their ubiquitousness, however multiphase flow continues to be one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics and experimental methods, with numerous problems remaining unsolved to date. Because the multiphase flow problems are so complex, advanced computational and experimental methods are often required to solve the equations that describe them. The many hhallenges include modelling nonlinear fluids, modelling and tracking interfaces, dealing with multiple length scales, characterizing phase structures, and treating drop breakup and coalescence. Models must be validated, which requires the use of expensive and difficult experimental techniquess. This book presents contributions on the latest research in these techniques, presented at the sixth in a biennial series of conferences on the subject that begain in 2001. Featured topics include: Bubble and drop dynamics, Flow in porous media, Turbulent flow, Multiphase flow simulation, Image processing, Heat transfer, Interaction of gases, liquids and solids, Interface behaviour, Small scale phenomena, Atomization processes, and Liquid film behaviour.

This volume contains 25 review articles by experts which provide up-to-date information about the recent progress in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Due to the multidisciplinary nature of CFD, it is difficult to keep up with all the important developments in related areas. CFD Review 2010 would therefore be useful to researchers by covering the state-of-the-art in this fast-developing field.
