Loops and Lists

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


This chapter explains how repetitive tasks in a program can be automated by loops. We also introduce list objects for storing and processing collections of data with a specific order. Loops and lists, together with functions and if tests from Chap. 3, lay the fundamental programming foundation for the rest of the book. The programs associated with the chapter are found in the folder src/looplist.
