Python Scripting for Computational Science by Hans Petter Langtangen


Python Scripting for Computational Science by Hans Petter Langtangen

With a primary focus on examples and applications of relevance to computational scientists, this brilliantly useful book shows computational scientists how to develop tailored, flexible, and human-efficient working environments built from small scripts written in the easy-to-learn, high-level Python language. All the tools and examples in this book are open source codes. This third edition features lots of new material. It is also released after a comprehensive reorganization of the text. The author has inserted improved examples and tools and updated information, as well as correcting any errors that crept in to the first imprint.


From the reviews of the second edition:

This book addresses primarily a CSE (computational science and engineering) audience. ... gives a clear and detailed account on the ways in which the surprisingly powerful Python language may aid the CSE community. (H. Muthsam, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, Vol. 151 (4), 2007)
