 Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python free ebook John V Guttag

Overview:

In order to write a computer program, you need to provide a sequence of instructions that the CPU can execute. A computer program consists of a large number of simple CPU instructions, and it is tedious and error-prone to specify them one by one. For that reason, high-level programming languages have been created. These languages allow a programmer to specify the desired program actions at a high level. The high-level instructions are then automatically translated into the more detailed instructions required by the CPU.

In this book(Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python free ebook John V Guttag), we will use a high-level programming language called Python, which was developed in the early 1990s by Guido van Rossum. Van Rossum needed to carry out repetitive tasks for administering computer systems. He was dissatisfied with other available languages that were optimized for writing large and fast programs. He needed to write smaller programs that didn’t have to run at optimum speed.

It was important to him that he could author the programs quickly and update them quickly as his needs
changed. Therefore, he designed a language that made it very easy to work with complex data. Python
has evolved considerably since its beginnings. In this book, we use version 3 of the Python language. Van Rossum is still the principal author of the language, but the effort now includes many volunteers. Python has become popular for business, scientific, and academic applications and is very suitable for the beginning programmer. There are many reasons for the success of Python. Python has a much simpler and cleaner syntax than other popular languages such as Java, C, and C++, which makes it easier to learn. Moreover, you can try out short Python programs in an interactive environment, which encourages experimentation and rapid turnaround. Python is also very portable between computer systems. The same Python program will run, without change, on Windows, UNIX, Linux, or Macintosh.
