Titus Adrian Beu is professor of theoretical and computational physics at the University "Babeş-Bolyai" from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He has been active in the broader field of computational physics for more than 30 years, both in research and academia. His research has been theoretical and computational in nature, covering a multitude of subjects. His research topics have evolved from Tokamak plasma and nuclear reactor calculations in the 1980s, collision theory and molecular cluster spectroscopy in the 1990s, to fullerenes and nanofluidics simulations in recent years. Development of ample computer codes has permanently been at the core of all research projects the author has conducted. In parallel, he has delivered lectures on general programming techniques and advanced numerical methods, general simulation methods, and advanced molecular dynamics.
The material covered by the book stems jointly from the author's research experience and the computational physics courses taught at the university. The basic material has undergone a continuous process of distillation and reformulation over the years, following the evolution of modern programming concepts and technologies.
