Subject: New Book, Methods in Computational Science

Methods in Computational Science
by Johan Hoffman

Computational methods are an integral part of most scientific
disciplines, and a rudimentary understanding of their potential and
limitations is essential for any scientist or engineer. This
self-contained textbook introduces computational science through a set
of methods and algorithms, with the aim of familiarizing the reader
with the field's theoretical foundations and providing the practical
skills to use and develop computational methods. Centered around a set
of fundamental algorithms presented in the form of pseudocode, it
extends the classical syllabus with new material, presents theoretical
material alongside several examples and exercises, and provides Python
implementations of many key algorithms.

data mining, graph mining and matrix/tensor factorizations. The
position requires both methodological developments (model formulation,
algorithmic advances) and the use of developed methods in
applications. Application areas of interest are omics data analysis,
