An introduction to computer methods for solving problems in the physical sciences whose difficulty or complexity places them beyond analytic solution or human endurance. This book offers detailed instruction in programming the hardware and using the program libraries of computers.

**Landau, Rubin H. : Oregon State University**

Rubin H. Landau, Phd, is a professor in the Department of Physics at Oregon State University in Corvallis. He teaches the course in computational physics, helps direct the Northwest Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering, and has been using computers in theoretical physics research for the past 30 years. The author of more than 70 refereed publications, he is the author of Quantum Mechanics II and A Scientist's and Engineer's Guide to Workstations and Supercomputers, both

available from Wiley.

**Paez, Manuel J. : University of Antioquia**

Manuel J. Paez, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia. He teaches courses in computational physics, programming, and nuclear physics. He and Professor Landau have conducted pioneering computational investigations in the interactions of mesons and nucleons with nuclei.
