This is a book about a code and about coding. The code is a case study which has been used to teachcourses in eScience atthe Australian NationalUniv sity since 2001. Students learn advanced programming skills and techniques TM in the Java language. Above all, they learn to apply useful objectoriented design patterns as they progressively refactor and enhance the software. We think our case study, EScope, is as close to real life as you can get It is a smaller version of a networked, graphical, waveform browser which is used in the control rooms of fusion energy experiments around the...

This book details the necessary numerical methods, the theoretical background and foundations and the techniques involved in creating computer particle models, including linkedcell method, SPMEmethod, tree codes, amd multipol technique. It illustrates modeling, discretization, algorithms and their parallel implementation with MPI on computer systems with distributed memory. The text offers stepbystep explanations of numerical simulation, providing illustrative code examples. With the description of the algorithms and the presentation of the results of various simulations from fields...

Numerous readers of the second edition have noti?ed me about misprints and possible improvements of the text and the associated computer codes. The resulting modi?cations have been incorporated in this new edition and its accompanying software. The major change between the second and third editions, however, is caused by the new implementation of Numerical Python, now called numpy. The new numpy package encourages a slightly di?erent syntax compared to the old Numeric implementation, which was used in the previous editions. Since Numerical Python functionality appears in a lot of places in...

Particle models play an important role in many applications in physics, chemistry and biology. They can be studied on the computer with the help of molecular dynamics simulations. This book presents in detail both the necessary numerical methods and techniques (linkedcell method, SPMEmethod, tree codes, multipole technique) and the theoretical background and foundations. It illustrates the aspects modelling, discretization, algorithms and their parallel implementation with MPI on computer systems with distributed memory. Furthermore, detailed explanations are given to the different steps...

The present book provides an introduction to using spacefilling curves (SFC) as tools in scientific computing. Special focus is laid on the representation of SFC and on resulting algorithms. For example, grammarbased techniques are introduced for traversals of Cartesian and octreetype meshes, and arithmetisation of SFC is explained to compute SFC mappings and indexings.

The locality properties of SFC are discussed in detail, together with their importance for algorithms. Templates for parallelisation and cacheefficient algorithms are presented to reflect the most...

Science used to be experiments and theory, now it is experiments, theory and computations. The computational approach to understanding nature and technology is currently flowering in many fields such as physics, geophysics, astrophysics, chemistry, biology, and most engineering disciplines. This book is a gentle introduction to such computational methods where the techniques are explained through examples. It is our goal to teach principles and ideas that carry over from field to field. You will learn basic methods and how to implement them. In order to gain the most from this text, you will...

How is it possible to predict weather patterns for tomorrow, with access solely to today's weather data? And how is it possible to predict the aerodynamic behavior of an aircraft that has yet to be built?
The answer is computer simulations based on mathematical models  sets of equations  that describe the underlying physical properties. However, these equations are usually much too complicated to solve, either by the smartest mathematician or the largest...

Scientific computing is the study of how to use computers effectively to solve problems that arise from the mathematical modeling of phenomena in science and engineering. It is based on mathematics, numerical and symbolic/algebraic computations and visualization. This book serves as an introduction to both the theory and practice of scientific computing, with each chapter presenting the basic algorithms that serve as the workhorses of many scientific codes; we explain both the theory behind these algorithms and how they must be implemented in order to work reliably in finiteprecision...
