by Rubin H Landau, Manuel J Paez, Cristian Bordeianu

**Publisher**: Wiley-VCH 2012**ISBN/ASIN**: 3527406263**Number of pages**: 526

**Description**:

This upper-division text surveys many of the topics of modern computational physics from a computational science point of view. Its emphasis on learning by doing (assisted by many model programs), as with 2nd Edition, but with new materials as well as with Python.

**Computational Thermodynamics**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson**

Computational foundation of thermodynamics based on deterministic finite precision computation without resort to statistics. A new 2nd Law without the concept of entropy is proved to be a consequence of the 1st Law and finite precision computation.
