This book introduces students with little or
no prior programming experience to the art of
computational problem solving using Python and various
Python libraries, including PyLab. It provides students with skills that
will enable them to make productive use of
computational techniques, including some of the tools
and techniques of “data science” for using computation to model and
interpret data. The book is based on an MIT course (which
became the most popular course offered through MIT’s
OpenCourseWare) and was developed for use not only in a
conventional classroom but in a massive open online course (or MOOC)
offered by the pioneering MIT-Harvard collaboration edX.
Students
are introduced to Python and the basics of programming
in the context of such computational concepts and
techniques as exhaustive enumeration, bisection search, and efficient
approximation algorithms. The book does not require
knowledge of mathematics beyond high school algebra, but
does assume that readers are comfortable with rigorous
thinking and not intimidated by mathematical concepts. Although it
covers such traditional topics as computational
complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a
wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including
information visualization, simulations to model randomness,
computational techniques to understand data, and
statistical techniques that inform (and misinform) as well
as two related but relatively advanced topics: optimization problems
and dynamic programming. Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python
can serve as a stepping-stone to more advanced computer science
courses, or as a basic grounding in computational problem
solving for students in other disciplines.
