Jacobi eigenvalue algorithm and power iteration All these methods and several others are used to calculate physical properties of the modeled systems. Computational physics also borrows a number of ideas from computational chemistry - for example, the density functional theory used by computational solid state physicists to calculate properties of solids is basically the same as that used by chemists to calculate the properties of molecules.

Divisions[ edit ] It is possible to find a corresponding computational branch for every major field in physics, for example computational mechanics and computational electrodynamics. Computational mechanics consists of computational fluid dynamics CFD , computational solid mechanics and computational contact mechanics.

One subfield at the confluence between CFD and electromagnetic modelling is computational magnetohydrodynamics. The quantum many-body problem leads naturally to the large and rapidly growing field of computational chemistry. Computational solid state physics is a very important division of computational physics dealing directly with material science.

A field related to computational condensed matter is computational statistical mechanics, which deals with the simulation of models and theories such as percolation and spin models that are difficult to solve otherwise.

Computational statistical physics makes heavy use of Monte Carlo-like methods. More broadly, particularly through the use of agent based modeling and cellular automata it also concerns itself with and finds application in, through the use of its techniques in the social sciences, network theory, and mathematical models for the propagation of disease most notably, the SIR Model and the spread of forest fires.

On the more esoteric side, numerical relativity is a relatively new field interested in finding numerical solutions to the field equations of general and special relativity, and computational particle physics deals with problems motivated by particle physics.

Computational astrophysics is the application of these techniques and methods to astrophysical problems and phenomena. Computational biophysics is a branch of biophysics and computational biology itself, applying methods of computer science and physics to large complex biological problems. Computational solid state physics, for example, uses density functional theory to calculate properties of solids, a method similar to that used by chemists to study molecules.

Jos Thijssen First published in , this second edition describes the computational methods used in theoretical physics. New sections were added to cover finite element methods and lattice Boltzmann simulation, density functional theory, quantum molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulation, and diagonalisation of one-dimensional quantum systems. It covers many different areas of physics research and different computational methodologies, including computational methods such as Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics, various electronic structure methodologies, methods for solving partial differential equations, and lattice gauge theory. Throughout the book the relations between the methods used in different fields of physics are emphasised. Several new programs are described and can be downloaded from www. The book requires a background in elementary programming, numerical analysis, and field theory, as well as undergraduate knowledge of condensed matter theory and statistical physics. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in theoretical, computational and experimental physics.
