Introduction to Computational Physics
by Franz J. Vesely
Publisher: University of Vienna 2006
The essential point in computational physics is not the use of machines, but 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.

In this book we address mathematical modeling of turbulent fluid flow, and its many mysteries that have haunted scientist over the centuries. We approach these mysteries using a synthesis of computational and analytical mathematics.

The author discusses the fundamental principles of thermodynamic and dynamic Monte Carlo methods in a simple light-weight fashion. The keywords are Markov chains, Sampling, Detailed Balance, A Priori Probabilities, Rejections, Ergodicity, etc.

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.
