David Potter, Computational Physics, John Wiley and Sons (). 1In all examples, this book will assume that you are using a Unix-based computer: either Linux or Macintosh. If you are using a Windows machine and are for some reason unable or unwilling to upgrade that machine to Linux, you can still use Python on a command line by installing the Python(x,y) package and opening an \iPython" window. This book presents a unified approach to a rich and rapidly evolving research domain at the interface between statistical physics, theoretical computer science/discrete mathematics, and coding/information theory.

  Information is stored, transmitted and processed by physical means. Thus, the concept of information and computation can be formulated in the con- text of a physical theory and the study of information requires ultimately experimentation. This sentence, innocuous at first glance, leads to non-trivial consequences. Synopsis: This book presents a unified approach to a rich and rapidly evolving research domain at the interface between statistical physics, theoretical computer science/discrete mathematics, and coding/information theory. It is accessible to graduate students and researchers without a specific training in any of these Range: $ - $ Information, physics, and computation. [Marc Mezard; Andrea Montanari] -- A very active field of research is emerging at the frontier of statistical physics, theoretical computer science/discrete mathematics, and coding/information theory. The book has been published in by Oxford University Press. The (ambitious) title is `Information, Physics and Computation.' (Below are some chapters in a not-final version.) Part A: Basics. Part B: Independent states. Part C: Graphical models and factor graphs. Part D: Belief propagation and its applications.
