Book Description

This book is about complexity science, data structures and algorithms, intermediate programming in Python, and the philosophy of science.

This book presents features that make Python such a simple and powerful language. The author 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.
