(Note: Most booksellers (Amazon included) will, by default, offer only the hardcover edition. It takes a bunch of clicking to get to the significantly cheaper paperback edition.)


Computing

We will be using Python with the libraries numpy, scipy and matplotlib for in-class work and assignments. No other languages are permitted. Python has a very gentle learning curve, so you should feel at home even if you've never done any work in Python.

Virtual Machine Image

While you are free to install Python and Numpy on your own computer to do homework, the only supported way to do so is using the supplied virtual machine image.
