Python is a freely distributable high-level programming language that has become very popular for everything from scripting applications and Web-page generation to solving scientific problems. It shares many basic characteristics with languages like Mathematica, Matlab, and Labview and has an extensive set of numerical and scientific modules. In this class we will use Python to build instructions describing a scientific problem and solve it using the college computing cluster.
