Scientific Computing with Python

If you are interested in learning programming with Python, you can download a script I wrote for a lecture. It is a quick introduction in the basics of Python and goes immediately to advanced topics like graphical interfaces, threading/multiprocessing and scientific tools.

I'd like to point out that this script is from 2012 and assumes a Python version of 2.x, which starting from 2018 will no longer be maintained by the developers.

Fortunately, the differences between Python 2 and Python 3 are not very big. See the references for further details.

Lecture Notes

The script is available in two versions — as a LaTeX beamer presentation and as a normal document for printing.

All example scripts from the lecture notes can be viewed and downloaded from here.
