Start Scientific Computing Course (PHY1610)

This course is aimed at reducing your struggle in getting started with computational projects, and make you a more efficient computational scientist. Topics include well-established best practices for developing software as it applies to scientific computations, common numerical techniques and packages, and aspects of high performance computing. While we will introduce the C++ language, in one language or another, students should already have some programming experience. Despite the title, this course is suitable for many physical scientists (chemists, astronomers, ...).This is a graduate course that can be taken for graduate credit by UofT PhD and MSc students. Students that wish to do so, should enrol using ACORN/ROSI.

Python to C++ #1

Python is a wonderful programming language, but it is not the fastest.  If execution speed is an issue for your project, it can be worthwhile moving to a so-called compiled language such as C++.  This three-session workshop is intended to get Python programmers started with the basics of C++.Format: TBD.
