Suffering from poor application performance? Reach for High Performance Python -- the only book that fully addresses the theory and practice of Python optimization. While Python can help you implement complex, mission-critical applications from scratch, poorly optimized code can waste millions of processor cycles. This book focuses on common causes of poor performance, from the algorithmic roots of code to Python-specific idioms, and shows you how to make your Python code as efficient as possible. You'll get a practical view of theoretical computer science and optimization that most people outside of the postgraduate arena never see. Not only will you learn how to improve application performance, you'll become a more thoughtful programmer. Get practical examples to help you grasp the theory of computation and algorithms Learn specific improvements for Python by understanding the basics of optimization Gain significant increases in application performance by making simple alterations Work with iteration, imaging, strings, precedence, function calling, and math Acquire a framework for understanding programming languages in general
