Abstract: 

The SIAM student club will be hosting an introductory tutorial on the computing language Python. We will be covering the basics of Python and their application to numerical computing. Topics include Variables, Lists, Control Flow, Functions, Matrices with NumPy, and Solving Linear Systems in NumPy and SciPy. This tutorial is intended to be interactive and you are encouraged to bring your laptop with you. If you are new to Python and are looking to install it on your computer, see the Anaconda (https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/) package that comes equipped with all the important libraries that you will need (we will be using Python version 3.x).
