One of the best!

I think it is the most complete and pedagogical introduction to Computational Physics. Excellent book, inspired topics and examples and very good exercises. An inspiration for me for writing my own book on Computational Physics and (re)designing my computational physics classes. The code presented is very good and easy to build on it new applications. I would also like to congratulate the authors for providing the source code under GNU GPL open source license from the beginning and opening access to the text at a later time.

Any Python version of the book

Computer Simulation Methods was my favorite book throughout my education. Currently I am teaching Python and I find Java a little bit terse for introductory courses. ? hope that the next version of the book could be delivered with Python.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I  just downloaded the book "An Introduction to Computer Simulation Methods
Applications to Physical System". I read few pages and it is amazing. It gives a real touch to the Computers in Physics.

Thanks for writing such a nice Book.
