About The Book

This book is the outcome of the courses given to post-graduate students during the last twenty-five years. Fortran programming and techniques of numerical analysis are now taught in both the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculums of pure science, computer science as well as engineering programs; this book language is introduced here in a self-taught mode, and every feature of the language is explained lucidly numerical techniques, however, the required formulae for implementing all the techniques have been provided with sufficient detail. Any serious student is expected to be able to learn programming in have been solved to provide ample knowledge of program implementation in various areas of science and engineering, including numerical methods. Programs of all the problems of the Mathematical Physics Lab Courses, under the newly introduced UGC CBCS Physics Honors Curriculum, have been discussed in detail. This book is also possibly the first to discuss the Fortran language and numerical analysis technique in a 'learn by doing it' style. Altogether, 170 programs have been written explaining their logic and results of test runs have been supplied to develop the skills necessary to solve more complex problems.
