Along with the impressive progress of computer technology over the past three decades, computational physics has evolved into a dynamic discipline that plays an important role in many different fields. Its contribution has been particularly profound in the areas of condensed-matter physics, chemistry, and materials science, where most problems involve complex many-body systems. In the overwhelming majority of cases it is impossible to obtain analytical solutions to these problems, and numerical techniques are generally the only realistic option.
