Title  Basic Concepts in Computational Physics 
Author(s)  Stickler, Benjamin A;Schachinger, Ewald 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 409 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This new edition is a concise introduction to the basic methods of computational physics. Readers will discover the benefits of numerical methods for solving complex mathematical problems and for the direct simulation of physical processes. The book is divided into two main parts: Deterministic methods and stochastic methods in computational physics. Based on concrete problems, the first part discusses numerical differentiation and integration, as well as the treatment of ordinary differential equations. This is extended by a brief introduction to the numerics of partial differential equations. The second part deals with the generation of random numbers, summarizes the basics of stochastics, and subsequently introduces MonteCarlo (MC) methods. Specific emphasis is on MARKOV chain MC algorithms. The final two chapters discuss data analysis and stochastic optimization. All this is again motivated and augmented by applications from physics. In addition, the book offers a number of appendices to provide the reader with information on topics not discussed in the main text. Numerous problems with workedout solutions, chapter introductions and summaries, together with a clear and applicationoriented style support the reader. Ready to use C++ codes are provided online

Title  Computational Physics : Simulation of Classical and Quantum Systems 
Author(s)  Scherer, Philipp O.J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIV, 633 p. 306 illus., 50 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook presents basic numerical methods and applies them to a large variety of physical models in multiple computer experiments. Classical algorithms and more recent methods are explained. Partial differential equations are treated generally comparing important methods, and equations of motion are solved by a large number of simple as well as more sophisticated methods. Several modern algorithms for quantum wavepacket motion are compared. The first part of the book discusses the basic numerical methods, while the second part simulates classical and quantum systems. Simple but nontrivial examples from a broad range of physical topics offer readers insights into the numerical treatment but also the simulated problems. Rotational motion is studied in detail, as are simple quantum systems. A twolevel system in an external field demonstrates elementary principles from quantum optics and simulation of a quantum bit. Principles of molecular dynamics are shown. Modern bounda ry element methods are presented in addition to standard methods, and waves and diffusion processes are simulated comparing the stability and efficiency of different methods. A large number of computer experiments is provided, which can be tried out even by readers with no programming skills. Exercises in the applets complete the pedagogical treatment in the book. In the third edition Monte Carlo methods and random number generation have been updated taking recent developments into account. Krylovspace methods for eigenvalue problems are discussed in much more detail. The wavelet transformation method has been included as well as simple applications to continuum mechanics and convectiondiffusion problems. Lastly, elementary quantum manybody problems demonstrate the application of variational and MonteCarlo methods.??

Title  Problems in Classical and Quantum Mechanics : Extracting the Underlying Concepts 
Author(s)  Kelley, J. Daniel;Leventhal, Jacob J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 368 p. 71 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a collection of problems intended to aid students in their graduate courses in physics and in preparing for the PhD qualifying exam. Thus, the included problems are of the type that could be on a qualifying exam or are problems that are meant to elucidate a principle that is important for the exam. Unlike other compilations of problems, the problems in this text are placed in the broader context of the subject. The goal of the book is to develop the problem solving skills of the reader to insure a complete understanding of the physics. Problems and solutions are presented in detail, and, additionally, their significance is discussed within the context of the physical principle(s) that they illustrate. The solution of the problem is only the beginning of the learning processit is in manipulating the solution and changing the parameters that a great deal of insight can be gleaned. This technique is referred to by the authors as "massaging the problem," and it is a technique that the authors have found to considerably increase the pedagogical value of any problem

Title  Manybody Approaches at Different Scales : A Tribute to Norman H. March on the Occasion of his 90th Birthday 
Author(s)  Angilella, G.G.N;Amovilli, C 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 385 p. 90 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a collection of invited research and review contributions on recent advances in (mainly) theoretical condensed matter physics, theoretical chemistry, and theoretical physics. The volume celebrates the 90th birthday of N.H. March (Emeritus Professor, Oxford University, UK), a prominent figure in all of these fields. Given the broad range of interests in the research activity of Professor March, who collaborated with a number of eminent scientists in physics and chemistry, the volume embraces quite diverse topics in physics and chemistry, at various dimensions and energy scales. One thread connecting all these topics is correlation in aggregated states of matter, ranging from nuclear physics to molecules, clusters, disordered condensed phases such as the liquid state, and solid state physics, and the various phase transitions, both structural and electronic, occurring therein. A final chapter leaps to an even larger scale of matter aggregation, namely the universe and gravitation. A further no less important common thread is methodological, with the application of theoretical physics and chemistry, particularly density functional theory and statistical field theory, to both nuclear and condensed matter

Title  Theoretical Femtosecond Physics : Atoms and Molecules in Strong Laser Fields 
Author(s)  Grossmann, Frank 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 318 p. 121 illus., 40 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook extends from the basics of femtosecond physics all the way to some of the latest developments in the field. In this updated edition, the chapter on laserdriven atoms is augmented by the discussion of twoelectron atoms interacting with strong and short laser pulses, as well as by a review of ATI rings and low energy structures in photoelectron spectra. In the chapter on laserdriven molecules a discussion of 2D infrared spectroscopy is incorporated. Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed lasers up to atomic field strengths on the order of 10^16 W/cm?? are leading to an understanding of many challenging experimental discoveries. The presentation starts with a brief introduction to pulsed laser physics. The basis for the nonperturbative treatment of lasermatter interaction in the book is the timedependent Schr??dinger equation. Its analytical as well as numerical solution are laid out in some detail. The light field is treated classically and different possible gauges for the fieldmatter interaction are discussed. Physical phenomena, ranging from paradigmatic Rabioscillations in twolevel systems to the ionization of atoms, the generation of highorder harmonics, the ionization and dissociation of molecules, as well as the control of chemical reactions are presented and discussed on a fundamental level. In this way, the theoretical background for state of the art experiments with strong and short laser pulses is given. The new text is augmented by several additional exercises and now contains a total of fortyeight problems, whose workedout solutions are given in the last chapter. In addition, some detailed calculations are performed in the appendices. Furthermore, each chapter ends with references to more specialized literature

Title  Stochasticity in Processes : Fundamentals and Applications to Chemistry and Biology 
Author(s)  Schuster, Peter 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 718 p. 168 illus., 162 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book has developed over the past fifteen years from a modern course on stochastic chemical kinetics for graduate students in physics, chemistry and biology. The first part presents a systematic collection of the mathematical background material needed to understand probability, statistics, and stochastic processes as a prerequisite for the increasingly challenging practical applications in chemistry and the life sciences examined in the second part. Recent advances in the development of new techniques and in the resolution of conventional experiments at nanoscales have been tremendous: today molecular spectroscopy can provide insights into processes down to scales at which current theories at the interface of physics, chemistry and the life sciences cannot be successful without a firm grasp of randomness and its sources. Routinely measured data is now sufficiently accurate to allow the direct recording of fluctuations. As a result, the sampling of data and the modeling of relevant processes are doomed to produce artifacts in interpretation unless the observer has a solid background in the mathematics of limited reproducibility. The material covered is presented in a modular approach, allowing more advanced sections to be skipped if the reader is primarily interested in applications. At the same time, most derivations of analytical solutions for the selected examples are provided in full length to guide more advanced readers in their attempts to derive solutions on their own. The book employs uniform notation throughout, and a glossary has been added to define the most important notions discussed

Title  Computational Methods in Physics : Compendium for Students 
Author(s)  Sirca, Simon;Horvat, Martin 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXIV, 880 p. 268 illus., 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is intended to help advanced undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students in their daily work by odering them a compendium of numerical methods. The choice of methods pays signi???cant attention to error estimates, stability and convergence issues, as well as optimization of program execution speeds. Numerous examples are given throughout the chapters, followed by comprehensive endofchapter problems with a more pronounced physics background, while less stress is given to the explanation of individual algorithms. The readers are encouraged to develop a certain amount of skepticism and scrutiny instead of blindly following readily available commercial tools. The second edition has been enriched by a chapter on inverse problems dealing with the solution of integral equations, inverse SturmLiouville problems, as well as retrospective and recovery problems for partial di???erential equations. The revised text now includes an introduction to sparse matrix methods, the solution of matrix equations, and pseudospectra of matrices; it discusses the sparse Fourier, nonuniform Fourier and discrete wavelet transformations, the basics of nonlinear regression and the KolmogorovSmirnov test; it demonstrates the key concepts in solving sti??? di???erential equations and the asymptotics of SturmLiouville eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Among other updates, it also presents the techniques of statespace reconstruction, methods to calculate the matrix exponential, generate random permutations and compute stable derivatives
