Python for Scientific Computing
May/June 2007 (vol. 9 no. 3)
pp. 10-20
Travis E. Oliphant, Brigham Young University

However, with additional basic tools, Python transforms into a high-level language suited for scientific and engineering code that's often fast enough to be immediately useful but also flexible enough to be sped up with additional extensions.
