  Introduction to modeling and simulation with MATLAB and Python
Gordon S., Guilfoos B.,  Chapman&Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2017. 210 pp. Type: Book (978-1-498773-87-4)

This is a very unusual book. It is concise and well written on the one hand, with bewildering content on the other. If one steps back far enough, the book could be described as a tutorial on writing programs for modeling and simulation. And that w...
