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.

This is an introduction to mathematical methods for solving hard mathematics problems that arise in the sciences -- physical, biological and social. Our aim therefore is to teach how computer simulations and analytical calculations can be combined.

These notes should train you in an algorithmic approach to problems in the sciences, represented here by the unity of three disciplines, physics, mathematics and informatics. This trinity outlines the emerging field of computational physics.

The Python programming language is an excellent choice for learning, teaching, or doing computational physics. This page contains a selection of resources the author developed for teachers and students interested in computational physics and Python.

This is an introduction to the computational methods used in physics and other scientific fields. It is addressed to an audience that has already been exposed to the introductory level of college physics, usually taught during the first two years...
