Hans Petter Langtangen's A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python: 6 (Texts in PDF

By Hans Petter Langtangen

Theaimofthisbookistoteachcomputerprogrammingusingexamples from arithmetic and the typical sciences. we have now selected to exploit the Python programming language since it combines amazing energy with very fresh, easy, and compact syntax. Python is simple to profit and extremely well matched for an advent to laptop programming. Python is usually rather just like Matlab and an exceptional language for doing mathematical computing. you can actually mix Python with compiled languages, like Fortran, C, and C++, that are accepted languages forscienti?ccomputations.AseamlessintegrationofPythonwithJava is o?ered by means of a different model of Python referred to as Jython. The examples during this booklet combine programming with appli- tions to arithmetic, physics, biology, and ?nance. The reader is - pected to have wisdom of uncomplicated one-variable calculus as taught in mathematics-intensive courses in excessive colleges. it truly is definitely an - vantage to take a school calculus direction in parallel, ideally c- taining either classical and numerical features of calculus. even if no longer strictly required, a historical past in highschool physics makes a few of the examples extra meaningful.
