Monday, 16 August 2021

Subtitled "High-performance scientific computing with NumPy, SciPy, and pandas", in this book Claus Führer, Jan Erik Solem and Olivier Verdier explore new Python syntax features and create different models using scientific computing principles. The book presents Python alongside mathematical applications and demonstrates how to apply Python concepts in computing with the help of examples involving Python 3.8. The book also covers numerical computation modules such as NumPy and SciPy, the plotting module Matplotlib, and SymPy, a tool for bridging symbolic and numerical computations.
