  • Hans Petter Langtangen
Part of the Texts in Computational Science and Engineering book series (TCSE, volume 3)


This chapter contains a quick and efficient introduction to scripting in Python with the aim of getting you started with real projects as fast as possible. Our pedagogical strategy for achieving this goal is to dive into examples of relevance for computational scientists and dissect the codes line by line.
