Publisher: John von Neumann Institute for Computing 2008
Number of pages: 153
This work is focused on the application of multigrid methods to particle simulation methods. Particle simulation is important for a broad range of scientific fields, like biophysics, astrophysics or plasma physics, to name a few. In these fields computer experiments play an important role, either supporting real experiments or replacing them.

The essential point in computational physics is the systematic application of numerical techniques in place of, and in addition to, analytical methods, in order to render accessible to computation as large a part of physical reality as possible.

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, such as friction and drag.

This course consists of both numerical methods and computational physics. MATLAB is used to solve various computational math problems. The course is primarily for Math majors and supposes no previous knowledge of numerical analysis or methods.

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.
