Modeling and Simulation in Python
by Allen B. Downey
Publisher: Green Tea Press 2017
Number of pages: 206
Modeling and Simulation in Python is an introduction to physical modeling using a computational approach. Taking a computational approach makes it possible to work with more realistic models than what you typically see in a first-year physics class, with the option to include features like friction and drag.

These lectures given to graduate students in high energy physics, provide an introduction to Monte Carlo methods. After an overview of classical numerical quadrature rules, Monte Carlo integration and variance-reducing techniques is introduced.

This is an introduction to mathematical methods for solving hard mathematics problems that arise in the sciences -- physical, biological and social. Our aim therefore is to teach how computer simulations and analytical calculations can be combined.

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.

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.
