The goal of this course is to give a modern introduction to mathematical methods for solving hard mathematics problems that arise in the sciences -- physical, biological and social. Our aim therefore is to teach, within a broad suite of examples, how computer simulations and analytical calculations can be effectively combined. In this course, we will begin with problems that are simple polynomial equations and first order differential equations -- and slowly march our way towards the study nonlinear partial differential equations.

The purpose of the text is to demonstrate how computers can help deepen our understanding of physics and increase the range of calculations which we can perform. These lecture notes are writen for an undergraduate course on computational physics.

This course aims to give the student a thorough grounding in the main computational techniques used in modern physics. This is not a text in computing science, nor in programming. It focuses specifically on methods for solving physics problems.

These notes should 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.
