This book covers a broad spectrum of the most important, basic numerical and analytical techniques used in physics —including ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra, Fourier transforms, integration and probability. Now language-independent. Features attractive new 3-D graphics. Offers new and significantly revised exercises. Replaces FORTRAN listings with C++, with updated versions of the FORTRAN programs now available on-line. Devotes a third of the book to partial differential equations—e.g., Maxwell's equations, the diffusion equation, the wave equation, etc. This numerical analysis book is designed for the programmer with a physics background.


This textbook introduces the basic computational methods needed by physicists, including ordinary and partial differential equations and stochastic methods. For the second edition, a new appendix with C++ versions of the programs has been added, and the MATLAB programs in the original appendix have been updated to version 5. Annotation c.
