If you don't know any Java, I'd start with some introductory level materials, then move up. I know from experience Mathematical modeling can be difficult and troublesome, especially if you aren't familiar with a language. If you want some practice math problems, take a look Project Euler.

I am not quite new to Java , i am about to wrape up studying " Head first Java 2nd Edition " , I am studying Data Structures in addition ,

sorry about descriptive title , won't occur once again .

thanks for your time

" i am new to Java programming ,actually i had not majored in CS when i were in the University"

"I am not quite new to Java "

Oh the contradictions...

If you have a weak mathematical background and need help there, this is not the place. This is for programming. If you have a weak mathematical background and need help with a program relating to that, I suggest you get the mathematical portion down first.

If the math is more a homework-help type question, the Student Campus forum may be more appropriate.

i have been studying java for 5 months , i am still new to Java , I am not asking for help with mathematical problems , all i asked for is recommending some good physics and math. books that might help me grow up in Java , there is no need making fun of people , keep your tongue inside .

thanks

It wasn't anyone's intention to make fun of you, nor do I believe that bcranger came across that way. His point is valid, though; if you know your Java and you know your Math and Physics, applying them in a Java program shouldn't be that much of a stretch.

Actually, they are tutorials I wrote for the Game Programming Tutorials section, on Math Modeling in Gaming, mainly applications of Calculus. Links:

well , i know basics about Math & Physics , that i had been studing in high school , i dont remember anything for the time being , so consider as if i have no Physical and Mathematical background , so i guess i would start over , meanwhile i will study java , i dont know actually where i could start , likewise there are tons of physical & mathematical books over there (Algebra - Geometry - topology - number theory - Trigonometry - calculus and analysis - Complex analysis , so on ) physics has several kinds , so i dont have a clue which books would work for me , i wanna study stuff that could help me in java , i am not gonna start a career in Math & Physics , hope you could understand my needs .

Sorry all for misunderstanding .

thanks

Out of curiosity, what specifically do you want to model?

unspecific models , i just want to be a good Java programmer , i think studying Math & Physics is good approach to my goal , is not it ?

P.s. I hope to be Java developer someday (Web developer).

thanks a bunch .
