Summary
"This second edition provides an even broader survey of the techniques of computational physics and science than the previous edition. It features new chapters on visualisation, wavelet analysis, and data compression, molecular dynamics, and computational fluid dynamics, an expanded treatment of Fourier analysis to incorporate wavelet analysis and filtering, broader coverage of partial differential equations to include fluid dynamics, realistic waves, and shock waves, as well as a more extensive treatment of computational biology and complex systems."--BOOK JACKET
