We will have a talk from Oliver Stegle in the Inference Group at the Cavendish Laboratory. Oliver “uses python for scientific computing as a ‘matlab replacement’ that provides the functionality of a ‘proper’ programming language”.

The title of his talk is: Python for Scientific computing

Abstract: Programming languages for scientific computing are numerous. Recently particular languages that allow for rapid development have gained much popularity. Oliver will give an overview of Python as a programming language and point out its benefits for rapid and interactive development of software for scientific computing. The talk will also include a comparison to alternative languages like Matlab, R or native C-implementation and hint at options to interface with those languages.

This talk is part of the SciComp@Cam: Scientific Computing in Cambridge series.
