DOING PHYSICS WITH PYTHON / MATLAB

    Please email me any comments, corrections or suggestions

    Many thanks to Dharam Arora for transferring files from physics.usyd.edu.au/teach_res/... to GitHub

    My Matlab licence expired and MathWorks would NOT renew it.

    So, I will use Python (it is free) for all future developments.

    Not that familiar with Python but not that different from Matlab.
