Sample text

The methods of numerical differentiation are as follows: • Finite difference approximation • Differential quadrature • Finite difference coefficients • Differentiation by interpolation Differential equations A differential equation is a mathematical equation that can relate a function to its derivative. The function represents a physical quantity, the derivative corresponds to the rate of change of this quantity, and the equation is the relationship between the two. For example, the motion of a freely falling object under the force of gravity is generally represented using a set of differential equations.

During the computations, there are some constants, such as pi, whose values have to be approximated, and this is also an important cause of deviation from the correct result. • Prerequisite computations: The data may have been obtained from the results of previous experiments, or simulations may have had minor, acceptable inaccuracies that finally led to further approximations. Such prior processing may be a prerequisite of the subsequent experiments. [8] Chapter 1 Approximation during computations occurs because of one or more of the following sources: • Simplification of the problem: As we have already suggested in this chapter, to solve large and complex problems, we should use a combination of "divide and conquer" and replacing a small, complex problem with a simpler one.

The SymPy library provides functionality for symbolic computations of basic symbolic arithmetic, algebra, calculus, discrete mathematics, quantum physics, and more. PyTables is a package used to efficiently process datasets that have a large amount of data in the form of a hierarchical database. IPython facilitates the interactive computing feature of Python. It is a command shell that supports interactive computing in multiple programming languages. matplotlib is a library that supports plotting functionality for Python/ NumPy.
