Python resources include NumPy. Information about using and obtaining this is provided here.

Tutorials on programming in Python using matrix features are also available.


Algorithmic Composition (relating to Part 4)

There is a huge collection of resources relating to Chaos, Fractal, Iterative techniques for algorithmic composition and other aspects of Computer Creativity as mentioned as an active application of Complex Number theory in AI a summary of these has been compiled here
