Dive into Python’s advanced possibilities, including algorithm analysis, graphs, scale-free networks, and cellular automata with this in-depth, hands-on guide. Whether you’re an intermediate-level Python programmer, or a student of computational modeling, you’ll examine data structures, complexity science, and other fascinating topics through a series of exercises, easy-to-understand explanations, and case studies.

Think Complexity presents features that make Python such a simple and powerful language. Author Allen Downey provides code to help you get started, along with a solution for each exercise. With this book, you will:

  • Work with graphs and graph algorithms, NumPy arrays and SciPy methods, basic signal processing and Fast Fourier Transform, and hash tables.
  • Discover complexity science, the field that studies abstract models of complex physical systems, including power laws, fractals and pink noise, and Turing machines.
  • Explore the philosophy of science through the models and results in this book about the nature of scientific laws, theory choice, and realism and instrumentalism, and more.
