1) Introduction :

some slides on generalities on computational physics and on basic instructions for this lab (pdf)

2) Computer number representation and errors and uncertainties in computations:
Finite representation of the numbers on the computer, underflow e overflow, machine precision, errors, choice of algorithms (some slides (pdf))

Textbook: see e.g. "Computational Physics: problem solving with computers", R.H. Landau, M.J. Paez, J. Wiley & Sons (1997, I ed.; 2007, II ed., enlarged, M.J. Paez and C.C. Bordeianu), first Chapter
