3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By R. Clinite on October 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
This isn't a new edition of Tajima's original compendium but the physics and algorithms described are still in widespread use and it never assumes that you're using particular software or a programming language. This book is for graduate scientists and engineers who shouldn't find it difficult to translate the algorithms into pseudo-code that they can create a simulation or make calculations from. There's an awful lot of theoretical work developed here from neural networks to accelerator design and I found at least three of the chapters useful for the plasma physics project that I was working on. Still, after twenty years an update of this book would be worthwhile given the author's fascination with the invention of the "mouse".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Collection of theoretical background for computational methods. Poor description of the methods themselves. This book is difficult to read. You better be a top notch expert in plasma physics to get anything out of this one. I was able to learn a few bits here and there, save your money and buy something else.
