The new edition of an introductory text that teaches students the art of computational problem solving, covering topics ranging from simple algorithms to information visualization.
This book introduces students with little or no prior programming experience to the art of computational problem solving using Python and various Python libraries, including PyLab. It provides students with skills that will enable them to make productive use of computational techniques, including some of the tools and techniques of data science for using computation to model and interpret data. The book is based on an MIT course (which became the most popular course offered through MIT's OpenCourseWare) and was developed for use not only in a conventional classroom but in in a massive open online course (MOOC). This new edition has been updated for Python 3, reorganized to make it easier to use for courses that cover only a subset of the material, and offers additional material including five new chapters.
Students are introduced to Python and the basics of programming in the context of such computational concepts and techniques as exhaustive enumeration, bisection search, and efficient approximation algorithms. Although it covers such traditional topics as computational complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including information visualization, simulations to model randomness, computational techniques to understand data, and statistical techniques that inform (and misinform) as well as two related but relatively advanced topics: optimization problems and dynamic programming. This edition offers expanded material on statistics and machine learning and new chapters on Frequentist and Bayesian statistics.
There is a difference between Exercise and Training. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for the effect it produces today, during the workout or right after you're through. Training is physical activity done with a longer-term goal in mind, the constituent workouts of which are specifically designed to produce that goal. Training is how athletes prepare to win, and how all motivated people approach physical preparation.
Practical Programming for Strength Training 3rd Edition addresses the topic of Training. It details the mechanics of the process, from the basic physiology of adaptation to the specific programs that apply these principles to novice, intermediate, and advanced lifters.
--Each chapter completely updated --New illustrations and graphics --Better explanations of the proven programs that have been helping hundreds of thousands of lifters get stronger more efficiently --Expanded Novice chapter with the details of 3 different approaches to the problem of getting stuck and special approaches for the underweight and overweight trainee --Expanded Intermediate chapter with 18 separate programs and 11 detailed examples --Expanded Advanced chapter with detailed examples of 9 different programs --Expanded Special Populations chapter with example programs for women and masters lifters training through their 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s --Day-to-day, workout-to-workout, week-by-week detailed programs for every level of training advancement --The most comprehensive book on the theory and practice of programming for strength training in print
Printed in a new larger format for better display of the programs, PPST3 will be an important addition to your training library.
The book features hundreds of interesting and practical examples of well-written Go code that cover the whole language, its most important packages, and a wide range of applications. Each chapter has exercises to test your understanding and explore extensions and alternatives. Source code is freely available for download from http://gopl.io/ and may be conveniently fetched, built, and installed using the go get command.

This book teaches C by example, with complete C programs used to illustrate each new concept along the way. Stephen Kochan provides step-by-step explanations for all C functions. You will learn both the language fundamentals and good programming practices. Exercises at the end of each chapter make the book ideally suited for classroom use or for self-instruction.
All the features of the C language are covered in this book, including the latest additions added with the C11 standard. Appendixes provide a detailed summary of the language and the standard C library, both organized for quick reference.
âAbsolutely the best book for anyone starting out programming in C. This is an excellent introductory text with frequent examples and good text.â¦This is the book I used to learn Câitâs a great book.â

The Fundamentals of Programming
When it comes to programming, understanding the founding concepts can greatly improve student engagement and future success. In its Fourth Edition, Starting Out with Programming Logic and Design is a language-independent introductory programming book, ideal for a precursor programming course or the first unit of an introductory programming course. The text covers fundamental topics such as data types, variables, input, output, control structures, modules, functions, arrays, files, object-oriented concepts, GUI development, and event-driven programming.
Designed for beginners, the text is clear and approachable, making the complex concepts accessible to every student. In this edition, Gaddis uses updated, contemporary examples to familiarize students with models and logical thought processes used in programming without further complicating them with language syntax. By using easy-to-understand pseudocode, flowcharts, and other tools, Gaddis illustrates how to design the logic of programs. Then, confident in their high-level understanding of computer programming, students are able to handle programming languages and syntax with greater ease and aptitude.Â
