Today, everyone in the sciences, engineering, and related disciplines needs at least basic programming skills. Python is an ideal language to start with, and this broad-based, application-driven guide is the perfect guide to learn it from. Princeton's Robert Sedgewick, Kevin Wayne, and Robert Dondero have crafted an easy, intelligent, broad-based introduction to programming that draws on a wide spectrum of relevant applications from science, mathematics, engineering, and commercial computing. Introduction to Programming in Python: An Interdisciplinary Approach emphasizes interesting and important problems, not toy applications. The authors focus on Python's most useful and significant features, rather than aiming for exhaustive coverage that bores novices. All of this book's code has been crafted and tested for compatibility with both Python 2 and Python 3, making it relevant to every programmer and any course, now and for many years to come. Step by step, readers will learn: * Core programming concepts such as data types, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O * How to use Python functions and modules * The essentials of object-oriented programming * How to use algorithms and data structures to improve performance, handle sorts and searches, and perform many other tasks * Graphics, image processing, and sound processing, via easy-to-use modules created for this book Sedgewick and Wayne, authors of the worldwide bestseller Algorithms, have an extraordinary track record in introducing newcomers to programming and computer science. In Introduction to Programming in Python, they've done it for a whole new generation.Über den Autor:
Robert Sedgewick has been a Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University since 1985, where he was the founding Chairman of the Department of Computer Science and is now the William O. Baker Professor of Computer Science. He has held visiting research positions at Xerox PARC, Institute for Defense Analyses, and INRIA, and is a member of the board of directors of Adobe Systems. Professor Sedgewick's research interests include analytic combinatorics, design and analysis of data structures and algorithms, and program visualization. He has written sixteen books, including Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach (with Kevin Wayne), Analytic Combinatorics (with Philippe Flajolet), An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms (with Philippe Flajolet), and Algorithms, Fourth Edition (with Kevin Wayne). Kevin Wayne is the Phillip Y. Goldman Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Princeton University, where he has been teaching since 1998. He was won several teaching awards at Princeton, including the Distinguished Teacher Award, the Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Award (joint with Robert Sedgewick), and an Excellence in Teaching Award. He received a Ph.D. in operations research and industrial engineering from Cornell University. His research interests include the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms, especially for graphs and discrete optimization. He is the coauthor (with Robert Sedgewick) of Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach and Algorithms, Fourth Edition. Robert Dondero is a Lecturer in Computer Science at Princeton University. He has been teaching at Princeton since 2001. For that work his students have selected him to receive eight Excellence in Engineering Education Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Teaching. He earned a Ph.D. in information science and technology from Drexel University. His research interests include software engineering and software engineering education.
