Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyProgrammingLab does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MyProgrammingLab search for ISBN-10: 0133862259/ISBN-13: 978013386225 . That package includes ISBN-10: 0133582736/ISBN-13: 9780133582734 and ISBN-10: 0133759113 /ISBN-13: 9780133759112. MyProgrammingLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. This text is intended for a one-semester introductory programming course for students with limited programming experience. It is also appropriate for readers interested in introductory programming. In Starting Out with Python®, Third Edition Tony Gaddis' evenly-paced, accessible coverage introduces students to the basics of programming and prepares them to transition into more complicated languages. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows readers to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to recognize the logic behind developing high-quality programs. Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, detail-oriented explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. MyProgrammingLab for Starting Out with Python is a total learning package. MyProgrammingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that truly engages students in learning. It helps students better prepare for class, quizzes, and exams-resulting in better performance in the course-and provides educators a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress. Teaching and Learning Experience This program presents a better teaching and learning experience--for you and your students. It will help: Personalize Learning with MyProgrammingLab: Through the power of practice and immediate personalized feedback, MyProgrammingLab helps students fully grasp the logic, semantics, and syntax of programming. Enhance Learning with the Gaddis Approach: Gaddis's accessible approach features clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise real-world examples, and exercises in every chapter. Support Instructors and Students: Student and instructor resources are available to expand on the topics presented in the text. Keep Your Course Current: This edition's programs have been tested with Python 3.3.2.

Python ist eine moderne, interpretierte, interaktive und objektorientierte Skriptsprache, vielseitig einsetzbar und sehr beliebt. Mit mathematischen Vorkenntnissen ist Python leicht erlernbar und daher die ideale Sprache für den Einstieg in die Welt des Programmierens. Das Buch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt durch die Sprache, beginnend mit grundlegenden Programmierkonzepten, über Funktionen, Syntax und Semantik, Rekursion und Datenstrukturen bis hin zum objektorientierten Design. Zur aktualisierten Auflage Diese Auflage behandelt Python 3, geht dabei aber auch auf Unterschiede zu Python 2 ein. Außerdem wurde das Buch um die Themen Unicode, List und Dictionary Comprehensions, den Mengen-Typ Set, die String-Format-Methode und print als Funktion ergänzt. Jenseits reiner Theorie Jedes Kapitel enthält passende Übungen und Fallstudien, kurze Verständnistests und kleinere Projekte, an denen Sie die neu erlernten Programmierkonzepte gleich ausprobieren und festigen können. Auf diese Weise können Sie das Gelernte direkt anwenden und die jeweiligen Programmierkonzepte nachvollziehen. Lernen Sie Debugging-Techniken kennen Am Ende jedes Kapitels finden Sie einen Abschnitt zum Thema Debugging, der Techniken zum Aufspüren und Vermeiden von Bugs sowie Warnungen vor entsprechenden Stolpersteinen in Python enthält.

An Introduction to SAGE Programming

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119122807
Release Date: 2015-12-18
Genre: Mathematics

Features a simplified presentation of numerical methods by introducing and implementing SAGE programs An Introduction to SAGE Programming: With Applications to SAGE Interacts for Numerical Methods emphasizes how to implement numerical methods using SAGE Math and SAGE Interacts and also addresses the fundamentals of computer programming, including if statements, loops, functions, and interacts. The book also provides a unique introduction to SAGE and its computer algebra system capabilities; discusses second and higher order equations and estimate limits; and determines derivatives, integrals, and summations. Providing critical resources for developing successful interactive SAGE numerical computations, the book is accessible without delving into the mathematical rigor of numerical methods. The author illustrates the benefits of utilizing the SAGE language for calculus and the numerical analysis of various methods such as bisection methods, numerical integration, Taylor’s expansions, and Newton’s iterations. Providing an introduction to the terminology and concepts involved, An Introduction to SAGE Programming: With Applications to SAGE Interacts for Numerical Methods also features: An introduction to computer programming using SAGE Many practical examples throughout to illustrate the application of SAGE Interacts for various numerical methods Discussions on how to use SAGE Interacts and SAGE Cloud in order to create mathematical demonstrations Numerous homework problems and exercises that allow readers to practice their programming skillset A companion website that includes related SAGE programming code and select solutions to the homework problems and exercises An Introduction to SAGE Programming: With Applications to SAGE Interacts for Numerical Methods is an ideal reference for applied mathematicians who need to employ SAGE for the study of numerical methods and analysis. The book is also an appropriate supplemental textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level courses in numerical methods.

Weizen gefährdet Ihre Gesundheit Brot, Gebäck, Pizza, Pasta – Weizen ist in unserer Nahrung allgegenwärtig. Doch kaum jemand weiß, was für ein gesundheitsschädigender Dickmacher das goldgelbe Korn ist. Denn in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde das Getreide genetisch so verändert, dass es mit dem »Urweizen« nicht mehr viel gemein hat. Der »neue Weizen« macht dick, fördert Diabetes sowie den Alterungsprozess, schädigt Herz und Hirn und ist schlecht für die Haut. Dr. med. William Davis zeigt glutenfreie Ernährungsalternativen auf, und wie man gesund und schlank ohne Weizen leben kann.

Numerical Analysis Using Sage

Author: George A. Anastassiou
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319167398
Release Date: 2015-04-11
Genre: Mathematics

This is the first numerical analysis text to use Sage for the implementation of algorithms and can be used in a one-semester course for undergraduates in mathematics, math education, computer science/information technology, engineering, and physical sciences. The primary aim of this text is to simplify understanding of the theories and ideas from a numerical analysis/numerical methods course via a modern programming language like Sage. Aside from the presentation of fundamental theoretical notions of numerical analysis throughout the text, each chapter concludes with several exercises that are oriented to real-world application. Answers may be verified using Sage. The presented code, written in core components of Sage, are backward compatible, i.e., easily applicable to other software systems such as Mathematica®. Sage is open source software and uses Python-like syntax. Previous Python programming experience is not a requirement for the reader, though familiarity with any programming language is a plus. Moreover, the code can be written using any web browser and is therefore useful with Laptops, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones, etc. All Sage code that is presented in the text is openly available on
