Astrophysics Through Computation: Volume 0, Part 0 With MathematicaÂ? Support Autor: Brian Koberlein , David Meisel
This new text surveys a series of fundamental problems in astrophysics, both analytically and computationally, for advanced students in physics and astrophysics. The contents are supported by more than 110 class-tested MathematicaÂ? notebooks, allowing rigorous solutions to be explored in a visually engaging way. Topics covered include many classical and historically interesting problems, enabling students to appreciate the mathematical and scientific challenges that have been overcome in the subject’s development. The text also shows the advantages and disadvantages of using analytical and computational methods. It will serve students, professionals and capable amateurs to master the quantitative details of modern astrophysics and the computational aspects of their research projects. Downloadable MathematicaÂ? resources available at www.cambridge.org/koberlein.
