This
set of lecture notes serves the scope of presenting to you and train you in an
algorithmic approach to problems in the sciences, represented here by the unity of three
disciplines, physics, mathematics and informatics. This trinity outlines the
emerging field of computational physics. Topics covered includes:
Introduction to programming and numerical methods, Linear Algebra and
Eigenvalues , Differential Equations, Monte Carlo Methods.

The purpose of this note is demonstrate to students how computers
can enable us to both broaden and deepen our understanding of physics by vastly
increasing the range of mathematical calculations which we can conveniently
perform. Topics covered includes: Scientific programming in C, Integration of
ODEs, The chaotic pendulum, Poisson's equation, The diffusion equation, The wave
equation, Particle-in-cell codes and Monte-Carlo methods.
