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

The Thesis Research Table is a weekly Zoom gathering for students beginning large, independent research projects (including but not limited to honors theses). The Table is a time to build a network of support from peers and instructional staff from the Writing Center and Library, to build skills useful for sustaining remote research projects, and to share strategies for balancing productivity and wellness in an uncertain time. Each week will focus on an aspect of the research and writing process, with topics announced through the Daily Mammoth. Drop in or attend regularly.
Hosted by Blake Doherty (Frost Library) and Jessica Kem (Writing Center)
