Rubin H. Landau, Phd, is a professor in the Department of Physics at Oregon State University in Corvallis. He teaches the course in computational physics, helps direct the Northwest Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering, and has been using computers in theoretical physics research for the past 30 years. The author of more than 70 refereed publications, he is the author of Quantum Mechanics II and A Scientist's and Engineer's Guide to Workstations and Supercomputers, both available from Wiley.

Manuel J. PŠez, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Antioquia in MedellŪn, Colombia. He teaches courses in computational physics, programming, and nuclear physics. He and Professor Landau have conducted pioneering computational investigations in the interactions of mesons and nucleons with nuclei.
