**Introduction to Computational Physics**

by Franz J. Vesely

**Publisher**: University of Vienna 2006

**Description**:

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.
