Python for Scientists Block Course Summer Semester 2019

General information

Welcome to the Python for Scientists course! This course was developed by Dr. Thomas P. Robitaille, who gave this course for many years at the Heidelberg University. Due to the popularity of this course, we now offer several block courses in parallel. Dr. Robitaille has moved on to another job so this course is now given by other teachers. This semester group 4 is given by Prof. Cornelis Dullemond (CIP Phil 12)
