Scientific Programming with Python

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm Online with Zoom

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 scientific problems, and solve them using the College computing cluster.

This workshop is in three parts:

Tuesday – Thursday, June 23 – 25, 1 PM – 5 PM
