Once day, I talked to my Prof. about Computational Physics and he showed me his work. I'm quite surprised that why Prof. use C++ for computation because C++ quite complicated. I heard he talked about memory talk about pointer. Why didn't he use Python or Java that more easier? no need to manage memory no need to busy with pointer.

I can't really know why your professor used C++, but there are several reasons why you would:
