An Introduction to Computational Physics by Tao Pang

By Tao Pang

completely revised for its moment variation, this complex textbook presents an advent to the elemental equipment of computational physics, and an outline of growth in different components of medical computing through counting on unfastened software program on hand from CERN. The booklet starts through facing simple computational instruments and workouts, masking approximating services, differential equations, spectral research, and matrix operations. vital recommendations are illustrated via appropriate examples at each one level. the writer additionally discusses extra complex themes, equivalent to molecular dynamics, modeling non-stop structures, Monte Carlo tools, genetic set of rules and programming, and numerical renormalization. It contains many extra workouts. this is often used as a textbook for both undergraduate or first-year graduate classes on computational physics or medical computation. it is going to even be an invaluable reference for someone all for computational research.

Die Theorie, die nicht sterben wollte: Wie der englische Pastor Thomas Bayes eine Regel entdeckte, die nach 150 Jahren voller Kontroversen heute aus Wissenschaft, ... nicht mehr wegzudenken ist (German Edition)

Suchmaschinen und Qualitätsmanagement, Versicherungen und Erdbebenvorhersagen, Verkehrsflüsse, Geheimcodes und medizinische Prognosen – die sogenannte Bayes’sche Regel ist geradezu allgegenwärtig und dennoch nur wenigen vertraut. Dabei ist sie in ihrer grundlegenden Aussage bestechend einfach: guy beginnt mit einer Vermutung und revidiert diese anhand neuer, objektiver Informationen – und gelangt so zu einer verbesserten Annahme.

Topology and Geometry for Physics (Lecture Notes in Physics)

A concise yet self-contained creation of the valuable strategies of contemporary topology and differential geometry on a mathematical point is given in particular with functions in physics in brain. All easy thoughts are systematically supplied together with sketches of the proofs of so much statements. gentle finite-dimensional manifolds, tensor and external calculus working on them, homotopy, (co)homology concept together with Morse conception of severe issues, in addition to the speculation of fiber bundles and Riemannian geometry, are handled.
