A textbook that addresses a wide variety of problems in classical and quantum physics. Modern programming techniques are stressed throughout, along with the important topics of encapsulation, polymorphism, and object-oriented design. Scientific problems are physically motivated, solution strategies are developed, and explicit code is presented.

Joseph Boudreau is a professor of physics at the University of Pittsburgh. He obtained his B.A. degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D from the University of Wisconsin. As an experimental particle physicist, he has concentrated on precision measurements in electroweak physics in the ALEPH experiment at CERN, on bottom physics at the CDF experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator laboratory (Fermilab), and on top quark physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. He is a former CERN associate, a former visiting scientist at Fermilab and the Center for Particle Physics of Marseille (CPPM), and a former Starr foundation visiting fellow at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford.
Eric Swanson is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh. He obtained his PhD from the University of Toronto in 1991 and subsequently spent three years at MIT and six years at North Carolina State before moving to Pittsburgh. He has published more than 100 papers on theoretical hadronic physics, condensed matter physics, and biophysics. Swanson was named an APS Fellow for his work on exotic particles and is a founder of the Topical Group on Hadronic Physics of the American Physical Society. He has been a visiting scientist at Oxford University, TRIUMF in British Columbia, Jefferson Lab in Virginia, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
