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 this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter.

This 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.
