  1. Computational Physics : With Worked Out Examples in FORTRAN and MATLAB

    Bestehorn, Michael, 1957-
    Berlin ; Boston : De Gruyter, [2018]

    Drawing on examples from various areas of physics, this textbook introduces the reader to computer-based physics using Fortran® and Matlab®. It elucidates a broad palette of topics, including fundamental phenomena in classical and quantum mechanics, hydrodynamics and dynamical systems, as well as effects in field theories and macroscopic pattern formation described by (nonlinear) partial differential equations. A chapter on Monte Carlo methods is devoted to problems typically occurring in statistical physics. ContentsIntroduction Nonlinear maps Dynamical systems Ordinary differential equations I Ordinary differential equations II Partial differential equations I, basics Partial differential equations II, applications Monte Carlo methods (MC) Matrices and systems of linear equations Program library Solutions of the problems README and a short guide to FE-toolsDrawing on examples from various areas of physics, this textbook introduces the reader to computer-based physics using Fortran (R) and Matlab (R).

  2. Engineering mechanics

    Yi, Ping
    [Place of publication not identified] : EDP Sciences & Science Press, [2022]

    Engineering mechanics provides the theories and methods of describing and predicting the state of equilibrium or accelerated motion of particles or rigid bodies under the action of forces. It consists of three parts: statics (chapters 1-5), kinematics (chapters 6 and 7) and kinetics (chapters 8-10) and it is basically corresponding to the course of "theoretical mechanics" in China. It is hoped that this book will help to develop in engineering students the correct understanding of the principles of mechanics and the ability to analyze and solve engineering problems using the principles. This book can be used as a teaching material for civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace, transportation and other engineering majors in colleges and universities, and as a self-study book for relevant technical personnel.
