Scientific Computing with Python 3, 2nd Edition

Book Description

Python can be used for more than just general-purpose programming. It is a free, open source language and environment that has tremendous potential for use within the domain of computing. This book presents Python in tight connection with mathematical applications and demonstrates how to use various concepts in Python for computing purposes, including examples with the latest version of Python 3. Python is an effective tool to use when coupling computing and mathematics and this book will teach you how to use it for linear algebra, arrays, plotting, iterating, functions, polynomials, and much more.

What You Will Learn
