Introduction to Computational Models with Python explains how to implement computational models using the flexible and easy-to-use Python programming language. The book uses the Python programming language interpreter and several packages from the huge Python Library that improve the performance of numerical computing, such as the Numpy and Scipy modules. The Python source code and data files are available on the author’s website.
The book’s five sections present:
An overview of problem solving and simple Python programs, introducing the basic models and techniques for designing and implementing problem solutions, independent of software and hardware tools
Programming principles with the Python programming language, covering basic programming concepts, data definitions, programming structures with flowcharts and pseudo-code, solving problems, and algorithms
Python lists, arrays, basic data structures, object orientation, linked lists, recursion, and running programs under Linux
Implementation of computational models with Python using Numpy, with examples and case studies
The modeling of linear optimization problems, from problem formulation to implementation of computational models
This book introduces the principles of computational modeling as well as the approaches of multi- and interdisciplinary computing to beginners in the field. It provides the foundation for more advanced studies in scientific computing, including parallel computing using MPI, grid computing, and other methods and techniques used in high-performance computing.
Automating UNIX and Linux Administration (The Expert's Voice)
Wouldn’t you like to automate the tedious daily tasks of system administration? Automating UNIX and Linux Administration will show you how, by exploring existing tools and offering real-world examples. Parts of the book are Linux-specific, but most of it applies to a UNIX system, including multiple variants of UNIX. Author...
Frontiers of Evolutionary Computation This book is a collection of essays, authored by eminent scholars in evolutionary computation (EC), artificial intelligence (AI), operations research, complexity theory and mathematics. Each essay revolves around important, interesting and unresolved questions in the field of evolutionary computation.
Creative Evolutionary Systems (With CD-ROM) This volume shows the current state of the art, and the science, of evolutionary creativity. It shows what can--and equally important, what can't--be done at the turn of the new millennium. What will have been achieved by the turn of the next one is anyone's guess. Meanwhile, it's intriguing, it's instructive, it's difficult, and it's fun!...
