520    Computational Methods in Physics, Chemistry and Biology 
       offers an accessible introduction to key computational 
       techniques used within science, including quantum 
       mechanics, dynamics, evolutionary methods and molecular 
       dynamics. Assuming only a limited background in 
       computational methods, this book provides the reader with 
       a series of comprehensive examples, problems and practical
       -based tasks from the basics through to more complex ideas
       and techniques. 
520 80 Beginning with an introduction to a numerical solution of 
       Schrodinger's Equation the text moves on to discuss 
       perturbation theory, variational calculations, diffusion, 
       dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations and genetic algorithms. 
       Aimed at those new to the field, the book will enable the 
       reader to develop and implement computational methods for 
       the solutions of a range of problems in science. 
520 80 This is essential reading for undergraduates taking 
       courses in computational physics, or numerical methods. 
       Also useful to students studying engineering, applied 
       mathematics, computational chemistry and mathematical 
       biology.
