Python hat sich in den letzten Jahren zu einer der gängigen Programmiersprachen für Wissenschaftler entwickelt. Dieser Kurs gibt eine breite und praxis-basierte Einführung in Möglichkeiten, gängige Probleme im wissenschaftlichen Alltag mit Python zu lösen. Der Kurs beinhaltet Themen wie Tools für die Entwicklung mit Python, IPython Notebooks, Visualisierung, moderne Programmierkonzepte, Lösen mathematischer Probleme (Lin. Algebra, Optimierung, Modellierung, Statistik) und einen Ausblick auf weiterführende Themen (Integration mit anderen Programmiersprachen, Parallelisierung, etc.)

In recent years Python has become one of the most widely used programming languages in the scientific community. This course aims to be a broad-scoped and "hands-on" introduction to solving common problems using Python. Topics included are IDEs for Python, IPython notebooks, visualization, modern programming style, solving mathematical problems (linear algebra, optimization, modeling, statistics) as well as an outlook into advanced topics (inclusion of other programming languages, parallelization, etc.)
