Python for Scientific Computing


Tuesday, 7 August 2007 - 3:00pm


Red Centre- Room 4082

I will introduce the python programming language in the context of scientific applications, emphasising the numpy and matplotlib packages, that together provide a computing environment similar to matlab. Time permitting, I will also discuss ways to run Fortran or C codes from python. The presentation will be informal, consisting mainly of code examples, and will not assume any prior knowledgeof python.
