{A gentle introduction to Python\TeX}
{Andrew Mertz and William Slough}
{The Python\TeX\ package allows authors to combine computational and
typesetting tasks by embedding Python code in \TeX\ documents. This
package allows access to many powerful Python modules, providing support
for such things as symbolic mathematics, plotting, arbitrary precision
numerical calculations, and networking. Python's intuitive syntax,
popularity, and extensibility together with \TeX's formatting strengths
make them a logical system for programming documents. By examining a
variety of examples, we will provide an overview of the capabilities and
possibilities of Python\TeX.
