The e-book serves as a primary creation to computing device programming of medical purposes, utilizing the high-level Python language. The exposition is instance and problem-oriented, the place the functions are taken from arithmetic, numerical calculus, records, physics, biology and finance. The e-book teaches "Matlab-style" and procedural programming in addition to object-oriented programming. highschool arithmetic is a required heritage and it truly is constructive to check classical and numerical one-variable calculus in parallel with interpreting this publication. along with studying tips to application desktops, the reader also will methods to resolve mathematical difficulties, bobbing up in a variety of branches of technological know-how and engineering, by means of numerical equipment and programming. through mixing programming, arithmetic and clinical functions, the e-book lays a fantastic starting place for practising computational science.

From the reviews: Langtangen … does a very good task of introducing programming as a collection of abilities in challenge fixing. He courses the reader into considering correctly approximately generating application good judgment and information constructions for modeling real-world difficulties utilizing gadgets and services and embracing the object-oriented paradigm. … Summing Up: hugely recommended. 

F. H. Wild III, selection, Vol. forty seven (8), April 2010

Those folks who've realized medical programming in Python ‘on the streets’ can be a little jealous of scholars who've the chance to take a direction out of Langtangen’s Primer.” 
John D. prepare dinner, The Mathematical organization of the US, September 2011

This publication is going via Python specifically, and programming in most cases, through projects that scientists will most probably practice. It comprises necessary information for scholars new to clinical computing and often is the ideal bridge among an creation to programming and a complicated direction on numerical tools or computational science.
Alex Small, IEEE, CiSE Vol. 14 (2), March/April 2012  

“This fourth version is a superb, inclusive textbook that covers pretty well every little thing one must understand to head from 0 to quite subtle clinical programming in Python…”
Joan Horvath, Computing stories, March 2015
