About this Course
This course will introduce students to the basics of Python. Python is an interpreted, object-oriented high-level programming language, which has recently become a popular tool in industry and academia. Python can be used for creating Windows, UNIX and Mac applications, from simple console and web-based to elaborate graphic interfaces for video games. Python standard packages such as Numpy, Scipy, and Scikit-learn offer a range of modern methods for big data analysis and constantly expand their capabilities. Students will explore applications of Python for data analysis and computer-aided decision making. Examples will be taken from robotics, finance and business, economics, operations research, financial modeling, engineering, mathematics, biology, and physics.
