Sites for chemistsry programming

  1. Sep 17, 2009 #1
    hi everyone,
    one of my hw questions asks me to write a computer program to evaluate the Planck distribution at any temperature and wavelength and add it to a routine for evaluating integrals for the energy density of the radiation between two wavelengths.
    I have never used any programming to study chemistry, can anyone show me which language should I use, and some links for the tutorials for programming applied for physical chemistry?
    any help appreciated, thank you.

    Why would you choose to use Java? For numerical calculations C++ is the way to go. I mentioned the book above and the use of VBA because in that book the Planck problem is well documented and easy to follow for someone with no programming experience.

    So why Java?
