Computing with Formulas

  • Hans Petter LangtangenEmail author
Part of the Texts in Computational Science and Engineering book series (TCSE, volume 6)


Our first examples on computer programming involve programs that evaluate mathematical formulas. You will learn how to write and run a Python program, how to work with variables, how to compute with mathematical functions such as e x and \(\sin x\), and how to use Python for interactive calculations.
