The Consortium for Upper-Level Physics Software (CUPS) has developed a comprehensive series of nine Book/Software packages that have been published by Wiley . CUPS is an international group of 27 physicists, all with extensive backgrounds in the research, teaching, and development of instructional software, that have been carefully developing this series over the last 4 years.
Each package is comprised of a paperback text and 1, 2, or 3 3.5" diskettes. All of the computer simulations have been provided in executable form and, although they can be run without reading the text, the text is necessary to achieve an understanding of the underlying physics and for exploring alternative ways to use the programs. The individual chapters and computer programs cover "mainstream" topics that are found in the standard textbooks for each course. However, because they are intended to be used as supplementary texts, there are topics missing that the standard texts would include.
