Devastatingly simple, yet hugely effective, the concept of this timely text is to provide a comprehensive overview of computational physics methods and techniques used for materials modeling on different length and time scales. Each chapter first provides an overview of the physical basic principles which are the basis for the numerical and mathematical modeling on the respective length scale. The book includes the micro scale, the meso-scale and the macro scale.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This is an advanced mathematical treatise devoted to an overview of numerical computational methods and techniques for materials modeling on different length and time scales. Steinhauser … covers microscale, mesoscale, and macroscale of materials modeling in two parts and seven chapters. … The book includes several appendixes, with one that provides further reading and another that lists almost 500 references. … Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty in mathematics and physics." (R. Darby, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (10), June, 2008)
