    Python is a dynamic programming language that allows fast, platform independent development. It is a high level programming language that uses a clear and consistent syntax, aiming for both concise and readable code. In contrast to MATLAB, it is a general purpose language, not directly aimed at numerical calculations. Additional functionality is provided by packages. For scientific functionality, the SciPy library (a package set) is key. This library adds functionality for fast numerical calculations, simulation and data visualization (and more). In this example, we will specifically make use of the NumPy and matplotlib packages.
