What is it about?

This is a standard textbook on the art of computer simulation as it is used today in state-of-the-art applications in physics and engineering. It focusses on two important methods, the Monte-Carlo and the Molecular Dynamics method. It is a textbook that addresses students taking computer science or programming classes.

Why is it important?

The book provides many ready-to-use programs that can be downloaded and which are explained in the book, therefore it is not only of theoretical but very much of practical value for learning key techniques in computational science.

Some parts of the book are based on my ongoing lecture course "Molecular Dynamics Simulations with Applications in Soft Matter" that I have been teaching every spring semester since 2013.
