Computer Simulations in Physics and beyond (CSP2017)
Computer simulations are nowadays a rmly established third pillar of modern
natural sciences, complementing experimentation and paper-and-pencil theoret-
ical studies. Simulations, experiments in silico, prove indispensable in diverse
areas of research in physics and other natural sciences.
This volume collects papers based on presentations delivered at the Sec-
ond International Conference on Computer Simulations in Physics and beyond
(CSP2017), which took place October 9-12, 2017 in Moscow. The Conference,
which continues a biannual tradition started by an innaugural conference in
2015, took place on campus of A.N. Tikhonov Moscow Institute of Electronics
and Mathematics, was jointly organized by the National Research University
Higher School of Economics, the Landau Insitute for Theoretical Physics and
Science Center in Chernogolovka.
As the name implies, the Conference is a multidisciplinary meeting, with
a focus on computational physics and related subjects. Indeed, methods of
computational physics prove useful in a broad spectrum of research in multiple
branches of natural sciences, and this volume provides a sample.
We hope that this volume will interest a wide range of readers, and we are
already looking forward for the next conference in this biannual series.
