The py4cs package with software tools associated with this book has undergone a major revision and extension, and the package is now maintained under the name scitools and computationnal separately. Python stands out as the language of choice for scripting in computational science because of its very clean syntax, rich modularization features, good support for numerical computing, and rapidly growing popularity.

It is also released after a comprehensive reorganization of the text. Many smaller changes have been implemented in Chapter 8; the larger ones concern exemplifying Tar archives instead of ZIP archives in Chapter 8. This is mainly the result of numerous eager readers around the world who have detected misprints, tested program examples, and suggested alternative ways of doing things.
Chapter 1 gives an introduction to what scripting is and what it can be good for in a computational science context. Violations are liable to prosecution under the German Copyright Law. Scripting in the Python programming language can be a key tool for reaching these goals [27,29]. The primary purpose of this book is to help scientists and engineers working intensively with computers to become more productive, have more fun, and increase the reliability of their investigations.
Installation of Python itself and the many add-on modules have become increasingly simpler over the years with setup. The sequence of chapters is hardly changed, but a couple of sections have been moved. The second edition features new material, reorganization of text, improved examples and software tools, updated information, and correction of errors.
This third edition features lots of new material. So, although Matlab is perhaps the scripting language of choice in computational science today, my use of the term scripting goes beyond typical Matlab scripts. This work is subject to copyright.

A quick tutorial on building graphical user interfaces appears in Chapter 6, while Chapter 7 builds the same user interfaces as interactive Web pages.

In fact, the high-level programming style and tools used in scripts open up new possibilities you would hardly consider as a Fortran or C programmer. The second edition was based on Python version 2. The new scitools package is backward compatible with py4cs from the second edition.

The numbering of the exercises is altered as a result of both adding and removing exerises. Instead, one can use the revised StringFunction tool from Chapter I am greatful to everyone who has sent emails and contributed with improvements. Want to know Runways information of a particular airport? Several parts of Chapter 4 on numerical computing have been extended especially Chapters 4.
The author has inserted improved examples and tools and updated information, as well as correcting any errors that crept in to the first imprint. The major change between the second and third editions, however, is caused by the new implementation of Numerical Python, now called numpy.

Chapters 5 and 10 have been extended with new material. The interest comlutational scripting with Python has exploded among Internet service developers and computer system administrators. To reduce complexity of the principal software example in Chapters 9 and 10, I have removed evaluation of string formulas.
Revised and additional tips on optimizing Python code have been included in Chapter 8. Barth Michael Griebel David E.
