Interested in optimization for scientific computing, where to start?

  1. Sep 20, 2013 #1
    I've just started programming with Python this summer, and I'm taking a course in computational physics this semester. I've been really enjoying it and programming in general, but I don't have much knowledge in computer science save for intro stuff (string/list methods, functions/classes, precision digits, a bit of dynamic programming), and I'm interested in learning more. Basically, I don't even know what I don't know. For example, what should I look into in order to understand something like this?
