Theaimofthisbookistoteachcomputerprogrammingusingexamples from arithmetic and the ordinary sciences. we now have selected to exploit the Python programming language since it combines striking energy with very fresh, easy, and compact syntax. Python is straightforward to profit and intensely compatible for an creation to laptop programming. Python is additionally relatively just like Matlab and an exceptional language for doing mathematical computing. you may mix Python with compiled languages, like Fortran, C, and C++, that are popular languages forscienti?ccomputations.AseamlessintegrationofPythonwithJava is o?ered through a different model of Python known as Jython. The examples during this ebook combine programming with appli- tions to arithmetic, physics, biology, and ?nance. The reader is - pected to have wisdom of easy one-variable calculus as taught in mathematics-intensive courses in excessive faculties. it really is definitely an - vantage to take a college calculus path in parallel, ideally c- taining either classical and numerical elements of calculus. even if now not strictly required, a historical past in highschool physics makes a number of the examples extra meaningful.
