Simulating the Physical World
Click here for further information.
The simulation of physical systems requires a simplified, hierarchical approach
which models each level from the atomistic to the macroscopic scale. From quantum
mechanics to fluid dynamics, this book systematically treats the broad scope
of computer modeling and simulations, describing the fundamental theory behind
each level of approximation. Berendsen evaluates each stage in relation to its
applications giving the reader insight into the possibilities and limitations
of the models. Practical guidance for applications and sample programs in Python
are provided. With a strong emphasis on molecular models in chemistry and biochemistry,
this book will be suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on
molecular modeling and simulation within physics, biophysics, physical chemistry
and materials science. It will also be a useful reference to all those working
in the field. Additional resources for this title including solutions for instructors
and programs are available online at www.cambridge.org/9780521835275.
