This book shows how to use Julia to tackle numerical and data problems. Author Ivo Balbaert starts from how to set up a running Julia platform, before exploring its various built-in types. With the help of practical examples, this book walks you through two important collection types: arrays and matrices. In addition to this, you will be taken through how type conversions and promotions work, be introduced to the concepts of homoiconicity (ability to manipulate a program written in Julia as data) and metaprogramming in Julia.
