Advanced Linear Algebra

1st Edition

Nicholas Loehr
April 10, 2014

Designed for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in linear or abstract algebra, Advanced Linear Algebra covers theoretical aspects of the subject, along with examples, computations, and proofs. It explores a variety of advanced topics in linear algebra that highlight the rich...

Finite-Dimensional Linear Algebra

1st Edition

Mark S. Gockenbach
May 06, 2010

Linear algebra forms the basis for much of modern mathematics—theoretical, applied, and computational. Finite-Dimensional Linear Algebra provides a solid foundation for the study of advanced mathematics and discusses applications of linear algebra to such diverse areas as combinatorics,...

Numerical Methods, Algorithms and Tools in C#

1st Edition

Waldemar Dos Passos
October 23, 2009

Comprehensive Coverage of the New, Easy-to-Learn C# Although C, C++, Java, and Fortran are well-established programming languages, the relatively new C# is much easier to use for solving complex scientific and engineering problems. Numerical Methods, Algorithms and Tools in C# presents a broad...

Nanocomputing: Computational Physics for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

1st Edition

Jang-Yu Hsu
March 31, 2009

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the computational physics for nanoscience and nanotechnology. Based on MATLAB and the C++ distributed computing paradigm, the book gives instructive explanations of the underlying physics for mesoscopic systems with many listed programs that readily...

A Combinatorial Approach to Matrix Theory and Its Applications

1st Edition

Richard A. Brualdi, Dragos Cvetkovic
August 06, 2008

Unlike most elementary books on matrices, A Combinatorial Approach to Matrix Theory and Its Applications employs combinatorial and graph-theoretical tools to develop basic theorems of matrix theory, shedding new light on the subject by exploring the connections of these tools to matrices. After...

MATLAB and C Programming for Trefftz Finite Element Methods

1st Edition

Qing-Hua Qin, Hui Wang
July 21, 2008

Although the Trefftz finite element method (FEM) has become a powerful computational tool in the analysis of plane elasticity, thin and thick plate bending, Poisson’s equation, heat conduction, and piezoelectric materials, there are few books that offer a comprehensive computer programming...

Plasma Physics via Computer Simulation

1st Edition

C.K. Birdsall, A.B Langdon
October 01, 2004

Divided into three main parts, the book guides the reader to an understanding of the basic concepts in this fascinating field of research. Part 1 introduces you to the fundamental concepts of simulation. It examines one-dimensional electrostatic codes and electromagnetic codes, and describes the...

Computational Plasma Physics: With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics

1st Edition

Toshi Tajima
February 13, 2004

The physics of plasmas is an extremely rich and complex subject as the variety of topics addressed in this book demonstrates. This richness and complexity demands new and powerful techniques for investigating plasma physics. An outgrowth from his graduate course teaching, now with corrections,...

Feynman And Computation

1st Edition

Anthony Hey
June 27, 2002

Computational properties of use to biological organisms or to the construction of computers can emerge as collective properties of systems having a large number of simple equivalent components (or neurons). The physical meaning of content-addressable memory is described by an appropriate phase...

Feynman Lectures On Computation

1st Edition

Richard P. Feynman
July 07, 2000

When, in 1984?86, Richard P. Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book. Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science...

Computational Physics: Fortran Version

1st Edition

Steven E. Koonin
July 01, 1998

Computational Physics is designed to provide direct experience in the computer modeling of physical systems. Its scope includes the essential numerical techniques needed to "do physics" on a computer. Each of these is developed heuristically in the text, with the aid of simple mathematical...

REDUCE for Physicists

1st Edition

N MacDonald
January 01, 1994

The use of computer algebra systems in science and engineering has grown rapidly as more people realize their potential to solve tedious and extensive mathematical problems. REDUCE for Physicists provides a comprehensive introduction to one of the most widely available and simple to use computer...
