Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Good college level overview. This book introduces students with little or no prior programming experience to the art of computational problem solving using Python and various Python libraries, including PyLab. The only thing about this book was it was a little bit heavy on the academic side and mathematical side.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. However, pytyon is the precise opposite of what I want to suggest – this is an excellent book, one that I would have dearly loved to have when I first started to learn the subject of computer science back in jphn s. Kristin rated it really liked it Sep 16, Mar 01, Becky marked it as to-read Shelves: East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Even one such as I, who has been working in the IT industry for nearly 30 years, got a huge amount of value from this book, as much of the content provided some good reminders of things that I’d since forgot, including probability and statistical analysis.


It is a very good introduction to computer science and python programming. Low to High Price: This is some tough reading, but well worth it. Obviously, you will learn more with this book if you can take the pace.

Professor Guttag’s current research is centered on the application of advanced computational techniques to medicine. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. An introduction to sotware engineering and data science for beginners, who are generally assumed to be non-specialist engineering or science students with a background in algebra and the scientific method.

Mar 04, Neal rated it really liked it. Although it covers such traditional topics as computational complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including information visualization, simulations to model randomness, computational techniques to understand data, and statistical techniques that inform and misinform as well as two related but relatively advanced topics: John Guttag has spent over thirty years teaching undergraduate computer science courses–first at the University of Southern California and then MIT.

Great material for anyone trying to learn computer programming or the python language itself. He fired the six shots, and then painted the targets around them. It’s a college textbook, used in the MIT subject 6. And the e 6. At that point, the book dives into the science element of computer science, including algorithmic complexity, probability theory, graphing and statistical analysis.

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python by John Guttag

Great book, some great examples on running trials. Nevertheless, its readers will obtain a very solid foundation. Unsurprisingly, it has a much more math-centered focus, which was interesting.

The book does not require gtutag of mathematics beyond high school algebra, but does assume that readers are comfortable with rigorous gjttag and not intimidated by mathematical concepts.

Current projects include prediction of adverse medical events, prediction of response to therapies, non-invasive monitoring and diagnostic tools, and telemedicine. May 01, Carl rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The chapter on computational complexity was downright fascinating.
