Editorial Review Product Description Nuclear engineering has undergone extensive progress over the years. In the past century, colossal developments have been made and with specific reference to the mathematical theory and computational science underlying this discipline, advances in areas such as highorder discretization methods, Krylov Methods and Iteration Acceleration have steadily grown. Nuclear Computational Science: A Century in Review addresses these topics and many more; topics which hold special ties to the first half of the century, and topics focused around the unique combination of nuclear engineering, computational science and mathematical theory. Comprising eight chapters, Nuclear Computational Science: A Century in Review incorporates a number of carefully selected issues representing a variety of problems, providing the reader with a wealth of information in both a clear and concise manner. The comprehensive nature of the coverage and the stature of the contributing authors combine to make this a unique landmark publication. Targeting the medium to advanced level academic, this book will appeal to researchers and students with an interest in the progression of mathematical theory and its application to nuclear computational science.

Editorial Review Product Description Newer computer architectures rely on multicore, multichip designs to achieve the highest performance; programmers, therefore, need to utilize multithreading and parallel programming techniques in their applications to achieve high performance on these new designs. This book provides application developers with a detailed understanding of how to effectively program for these new high performance architectures. The authors give a broad overview of the current state of hardware and software advances to support high performance applications. They cover application optimization for hybrid multicore architectures and focus on the more common and successful strategies for multithreading and parallel programming using examples from actual codes.

Editorial Review Product Description
Each section formulates a problem and then introduces those new MATLAB language features that are necessary to solve it. This approach puts problemsolving and algorithmic thinking first and syntactical details second. Each solution is followed by a talking point that concerns some related, larger issue associated with CSE. Collectively, the worked examples, talking points, and 300+ homework problems build intuition for the process of discretization and an appreciation for dimension, inexactitude, visualization, randomness, and complexity. This sets the stage for further coursework in CSE areas.
The interplay between programming and mathematics throughout the text reinforces the student s ability to reason numerically and geometrically.
Audience: Undergraduate students whose mathematical maturity is at the level of Calculus I will find this book extremely useful, especially as preparation for further courses in computing and mathematics. It can also be used as a MATLAB reference at any level.

Editorial Review Product Description The present book describes the methodology to set up agentbased models and to study emerging patterns in complex adaptive systems resulting from multiagent interaction. It offers the application of agentbased models in demography, social and economic sciences and environmental sciences. Examples include population dynamics, evolution of social norms, communication structures, patterns in ecosystems and sociobiology, natural resource management, spread of diseases and development processes. It presents and combines different approaches how to implement agentbased computational models and tools in an integrative manner that can be extended to other cases.

Up to date but not much better than other texts The strong point of this book compared to others on the same subject is that the amount of space devoted to the various subjects closely corresponds to the amount of work done in those subjects.Therefore, a lot of space is spent on empirical and semiempirical methods. Density functional theory, which is the workhorse of today's highend simulations, gets shorted here.Only a couple of pages are spent on it.This contrasts strongly with other books on the same subject, like the books by Raabe, or Catlow, or Finnis, where DFT gets at least a whole chapter to itself. Likewise, there is not much on electronic structure.There are a fair number of examples in this book, but few are simple enough for the firsttimer to follow.The examples tend to show of the abilities of simulations; and not the nuts and bolts of how to do them. As such, this book is great for an introductory course on computer simulations of materials; assuming the reader has a background in materials science.It is not a good book for a course on DFT, computational quantum mechanics, or solid state calculations.
The Best MODERN treatment: Concise, yet Thorough This book is a gem, written by three active frontiers on this subject and can be of great value to anyone doing computations in material science. An almost complete and up to date review of the methods used in this field with great lists of references for further studies. In addition to the workers in this field, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what happens in the Material Science today. ... Read more
