First Steps in Scientific Programming

posted 15 May 2018, 23:08 by Michael K Griffiths
Research Software Engineer Patricio Ortiz from the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering has written an excellent book about scientific computing.

Sooner or later many researchers, discover that in order to remain at the forefront of knowledge they need to develop computational tools for computational modelling, data analysis and visualisation.

This text provides an invaluable guide to getting started with programming in modern research environments utilising HPC platforms, high performance workstations and the Cloud. Programming is covered in a generic way and it is not tied to a particular language.

Patricio has a proven track record in graduate/undergraduate teaching. He is an astronomer working on a range of projects including the development of systems for the detection of  near earth objects to automated detection of super novae.
