Python Programming: Your Beginner’s Guide To Easily Learn Python in 7 Days
Lowest new price: $16.95
List price: $16.95
Author: iCode Academy

Are You Ready To Learn Python Easily? Python is one of the most popular of all the computer programming languages, simply because it is one of the easiest to learn. It is an allpurpose language that has a range of different applications, such as: ¥ Web development ¥ Mathematical and Scientific Computing ¥ Graphical user interface for the desktop Python has a very clean syntax and short code which makes it ideal for the beginner. Not only that, Python is fun because, rather than spending all your time worrying about the syntax, you get to spend time thinking about what your code is going to do instead. Python is an old language, developed in the 1980’s and being released for the first time in 1991. It was developed because Guido van Rossum wanted to create a language that was easy to understand and that could access the Amoeba system he was working on. That led to Python, an interpreted and extensible language that was named after Monty Python’s Flying Circus for no reason other than the creator was a fan! Python is so much easier to write and to read than many other languages and is one of the most featurepacked. Benefits include: ¥ It’s free and its open source – anyone can use Python and anyone can make changes to the source code and distribute it for themselves. ¥ Portable – Python programs can move from one platform to another can be run without the need to make any changes ¥ Embeddable and Extensible – Python code can be combined with bits of another computer language to produce a highperformance code and scripting abilities which are not always available with other languages out of the box ¥ Interpreted Language – Python does a lot of jobs, like garbage collection, memory management and so on automatically. Also, when your code is run, it will automatically be converted into a code that is understood by your computer system ¥ Libraries – Python contains a lot of libraries with much of the code needed to perform common tasks and cut down on the amount of code you need to write ¥ ObjectOriented  because everything that is in Python is an object, it is far easier to solve complex problems – each can be broken down into smaller problems through the creation of objects. Python is backed up with a large active community who are constantly striving to improve the language for beginners and experts alike. Use this community as they are of invaluable help to you. If you are quite ready, we are going to look at the basics of Python programming now. First, I will show you how to install it on your computer and then we will go through the basic concepts. There are going to be plenty of examples for you to input into Python and try or yourself. This is the best way to learn so I urge you to get your Python environment set up and work along with this book – you will learn so much more than if you just read it. Here Is What You'll Learn After Downloading This Python Programming Book: ✓ Introduction Chapter 1: Installing Python and Setting up Your Environment ✓ Chapter 2: Python Keywords, Identifiers, and Operators Chapter 3: Python Flow Control ✓ Chapter 4: Python Functions Chapter 5: Python Datatypes ✓ Chapter 6: Python Lists Chapter 7: Python Tuples ✓ Chapter 8: Python Strings Chapter 9: Python Sets ✓ Chapter 10: Python Objects and Classes Chapter 11: Python Dictionary ✓ Chapter 12: Python Glossary What Are You Waiting For?

Structured Matrices in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Engineering I
Lowest new price: $100.80
Lowest used price: $45.28
List price: $96.00
Brand: Brand: Amer Mathematical Society

Many important problems in applied sciences, mathematics, and engineering can be reduced to matrix problems. Moreover, various applications often introduce a special structure into the corresponding matrices, so that their entries can be described by a certain compact formula. Classic examples include Toeplitz matrices, Hankel matrices, Vandermonde matrices, Cauchy matrices, Pick matrices, Bezoutians, controllability and observability matrices, and others. Exploiting these and the more general structures often allows us to obtain elegant solutions to mathematical problems as well as to design more efficient practical algorithms for a variety of applied engineering problems.Structured matrices have been under close study for a long time and in quite diverse (and seemingly unrelated) areas, for example, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Considerable progress has recently been made in all these areas, and especially in studying the relevant numerical and computational issues. In the past few years, a number of practical algorithms blending speed and accuracy have been developed. This significant growth is fully reflected in these volumes, which collect 38 papers devoted to the numerous aspects of the topic. The collection of the contributions to these volumes offers a flavor of the plethora of different approaches to attack structured matrix problems.The reader will find that the theory of structured matrices is positioned to bridge diverse applications in the sciences and engineering, deep mathematical theories, as well as computational and numerical issues. The presentation fully illustrates the fact that the techniques of engineers, mathematicians, and numerical analysts nicely complement each other, and they all contribute to one unified theory of structured matrices. The book is published in two volumes. The first contains articles on interpolation, system theory, signal and image processing, control theory, and spectral theory. Articles in the second volume are devoted to fast algorithms, numerical and iterative methods, and various applications.

Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition
Lowest new price: $117.00
Lowest used price: $90.00
List price: $117.00
Author: Yousef Saad
Brand: Brand: Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Tremendous progress has been made in the scientific and engineering disciplines regarding the use of iterative methods for linear systems. The size and complexity of linear and nonlinear systems arising in typical applications has grown, meaning that using direct solvers for the threedimensional models of these problems is no longer effective. At the same time, parallel computing, becoming less expensive and standardized, has penetrated these application areas. Iterative methods are easier than direct solvers to implement on parallel computers but require approaches and solution algorithms that are different from classical methods. This second edition gives an indepth, uptodate view of practical algorithms for solving largescale linear systems of equations, including a wide range of the best methods available today. A new chapter on multigrid techniques has been added, whilst material throughout has been updated, removed or shortened. Numerous exercises have been added, as well as an updated and expanded bibliography.

Quaternions and Rotation Sequences: A Primer with Applications to Orbits, Aerospace and Virtual Reality
Lowest new price: $56.30
Lowest used price: $45.00
List price: $99.95
Author: J. B. Kuipers
Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press

Ever since the Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton introduced quaternions in the nineteenth centurya feat he celebrated by carving the founding equations into a stone bridgemathematicians and engineers have been fascinated by these mathematical objects. Today, they are used in applications as various as describing the geometry of spacetime, guiding the Space Shuttle, and developing computer applications in virtual reality. In this book, J. B. Kuipers introduces quaternions for scientists and engineers who have not encountered them before and shows how they can be used in a variety of practical situations. The book is primarily an exposition of the quaternion, a 4tuple, and its primary application in a rotation operator. But Kuipers also presents the more conventional and familiar 3 x 3 (9element) matrix rotation operator. These parallel presentations allow the reader to judge which approaches are preferable for specific applications. The volume is divided into three main parts. The opening chapters present introductory material and establish the book's terminology and notation. The next part presents the mathematical properties of quaternions, including quaternion algebra and geometry. It includes more advanced special topics in spherical trigonometry, along with an introduction to quaternion calculus and perturbation theory, required in many situations involving dynamics and kinematics. In the final section, Kuipers discusses stateoftheart applications. He presents a six degreeoffreedom electromagnetic position and orientation transducer and concludes by discussing the computer graphics necessary for the development of applications in virtual reality.
