**Computational Physics**

by Morten Hjorth-Jensen

**Publisher**: University of Oslo 2007**Number of pages**: 444

**Description**:

This set of lecture notes serves the scope of presenting to you and train you in an algorithmic approach to problems in the sciences, represented here by the unity of three disciplines, physics, mathematics and informatics. This trinity outlines the emerging field of computational physics. Time is ripe for revising the old tale that if mathematics is the queen of sciences then physics is king. Informatics ought definitely to belong among the princely.
