Python Suggestions for books about scientific computing using Python

  • Thread starter GoldenBear

Looking for suggestions on books (or other learning material) that will help me improve my skills using Python for scientific computing. I am comfortable with Python programming (syntax, conditional statements, loops, etc.), and use it for data analysis in my undergraduate experimental physics courses, but I am not an expert.

I own a copy of Numerical Recipes which is written using C++ (which I haven’t learned yet) and from what I understand the material is transferable to other languages, but I would prefer a book that has Python routines in it as I am comfortable with the syntax and believe seeing the material being applied using Python code would make learning the material easier. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
