9780134076430: Introduction to Programming in Python: An Interdisciplinary Approach

Today, anyone in a scientific or technical discipline needs programming skills. Python is an ideal first programming language, and Introduction to Programming in Python is the best guide to learning it.

 

Princeton University’s Robert Sedgewick, Kevin Wayne, and Robert Dondero have crafted an accessible, interdisciplinary introduction to programming in Python that emphasizes important and engaging applications, not toy problems. The authors supply the tools needed for students to learn that programming is a natural, satisfying, and creative experience.

 

This example-driven guide focuses on Python’s most useful features and brings programming to life for every student in the sciences, engineering, and computer science.

 

Coverage includes

  • Basic elements of programming: variables, assignment statements, built-in data types, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O, including graphics and sound
  • Functions, modules, and libraries: organizing programs into components that can be independently debugged, maintained, and reused
  • Object-oriented programming and data abstraction: objects, modularity, encapsulation, and more
  • Algorithms and data structures: sort/search algorithms, stacks, queues, and symbol tables
  • Examples from applied math, physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science—all compatible with Python 2 and 3

Drawing on their extensive classroom experience, the authors provide Q&As, exercises, and opportunities for creative practice throughout. An extensive amount of supplementary information is available at introcs.cs.princeton.edu/python. With source code, I/O libraries, solutions to selected exercises, and much more, this companion website empowers people to use their own computers to teach and learn the material.

Product Description:

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.
