Modeling and Simulation in Python
by Allen B. Downey
Publisher: Green Tea Press 2017
Number of pages: 206
Modeling and Simulation in Python is an introduction to physical modeling using a computational approach. Taking a computational approach makes it possible to work with more realistic models than what you typically see in a first-year physics class, with the option to include features like friction and drag.
