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.

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.
by Johannes Grotendorst, Stefan Bluegel, Dominik Marx - NIC
This volume focuses on the application of electronic structure calculations and dynamical simulation techniques covering aspects of solid state physics, surface and nanoscience, chemical reactions and dynamics, magnetism and electron transport, etc.
