In this book, you'll learn about:

  1. Python for Scientists

    You already know how to solve problems in your field. In this guide you’ll find the tools you need to map your existing calculations with Python.

  2. Python Modules

    Learn how NumPy, SymPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, and VPython can help you with your scientific work. From solving linear equations and creating animations to using discrete Fourier transformations to reconstruct a noisy signal, you’ll find the practical advice you need.

  3. Python in Action

    Start simple by sizing a shaft and then move on to increasingly advanced exercises: animating a pendulum, simulating a rolling element bearing defect, creating a predator-prey model, and more. For every exercise, review the complete source code, with extensive comments, and analyze the output.

Highlights include:

  • Program structures
  • NumPy
  • Matplotlib
  • SymPy
  • SciPy
  • VPython
  • Tkinter
  • Numerical calculations
  • Statistical calculations
  • Boolean algebra

Dr. Veit Steinkamp studied electrical engineering and German to become a teacher and pass on his knowledge at vocational schools and technical colleges.
