Abstract:

Theoretical Physics on the Personal Computer is a novel, easy-to-comprehend and well-structured text, ideal as an introduction to problem-solving with computers for advanced undergraduate students. Sixteen instructive chapters are included in this book, covering the fields of classical mechanics, wave physics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics. In each chapter, a problem is first explained and placed into its physical context before an outline of the appropriate numerical steps, the corresponding program in FORTRAN 77 and various related problems are discussed. The final section of each chapter discusses the solutions and gives examples of graphics outputs. The required software for this book is included on floppy disk. It has been designed for the IBM PC/AT and can be used on compatibles and mainframes with only minor changes. For students and lecturers this book will prove to be an indispensable guide for classes in physics, applied mathematics, computer science and engineering.
