Computational Physics by J.M. Thijssen

And of course there were the usual problems of installing the code properly, compiling it, and executing it. Find resources associated with this title.

Furthermore, physics departments will need to augment their curricula to provide students with the skills needed to perform research using computers … In Computational Physics, [Jos] Thijssen has produced a book that is well suited to meeting these needs … This book makes it easier to approach a new topic and encourages the reader to consider a modular approach when writing programs. These skills are not very useful in writing a code to do computations.
