Summary

Conveying the excitement and allure of physics, this progressive text uses a computational approach to introduce students to the basic numerical techniques used in dealing with topics and problems of prime interest to today's physicists.

Contains a wealth of topics to allow instructors flexibility in the choice of topics and depth of coverage:

Examines projective motion with and without realistic air resistance.
Discusses planetary motion and the three-body problem.
Explores chaotic motion of the pendulum and waves on a string.
Considers topics relating to fractal growth and stochastic systems.
Offers examples on statistical physics and quantum mechanics.

Contains ample explanations of the necessary algorithms students need to help them write original programs, and provides many example programs and calculations for reference.

Students and instructors may access sample programs through the author's web site: http://www.physics.purdue.edu/~ng/comp_phys.html

Includes a significant amount of additional material and problems to give students and instructors flexibility in the choice of topics and depth of coverage.
