Programming for computations - Python: a gentle introduction to numerical simulations with Python

By: Linge, Svein.
Contributor(s): Langtangen, Hans Petter.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Texts in Computational Ccience and Engineering 15. Publisher: Heidelberg Springer 2016Description: xvi, 224 p.ISBN: 9783319324272.Subject(s): Computer science - Mathematics | Python - Computer program language | Computer programming | Mathematics | Numerical analysis | Computer softwareDDC classification: 004.0151 Summary: This book presents computer programming as a key method for solving mathematical problems. There are two versions of the book, one for MATLAB and one for Python. The book was inspired by the Springer book TCSE 6: A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python (by Langtangen), but the style is more accessible and concise, in keeping with the needs of engineering students. The book outlines the shortest possible path from no previous experience with programming to a set of skills that allows the students to write simple programs for solving common mathematical problems with numerical methods in engineering and science courses. The emphasis is on generic algorithms, clean design of programs, use of functions, and automatic tests for verification. http://www.springer.com/in/book/9783319324272
