If you are starting out, I would recommend Python as an initial tool to play with. Though, as it is often easier to learn with a group of friends, you might want to check what others are using.

For example, like Cheong mentioned, in quantitative finance many people use (Excel) spreadsheets, in part because it allows for an easy visual display, and also simple tracing and coding up for formulas. In statistics, many people use the program R, or Matlab. In physics modelling people use Mathematica. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 6 months ago

Quite a few people on brilliant use the Python language for solving the computer science problems. With the addition of the sympy library for Python you can also do quite a bit of algebra, geometry and trigonometry. Bill Bell · 2 years, 6 months ago

Hi

I believe you mean Programming Language , right ? You can use any language , there's no specific software that can be used to solve problems ! Like I use Java , my friend @Brock Brown uses Python (yup! He's the best programmer on Brilliant) and people like @Agnishom Chattopadhyay use Sage and Haskell ,@Pranjal Jain uses C++ , @Chew-Seong Cheong sir uses Spreadsheets(btw this is not a software) and the list goes on \(\dots\)

Try to learn an easy programming language and use it :)

Try out TalentBuddy , CodeAcademy , I use them and can recommend those to you .

@Azhaghu Roopesh M I use Python too. Just learned up last year. Don't know others Chew-Seong Cheong · 2 years, 6 months ago

@Chew-Seong Cheong Oops! It's just that I have seen your solutions using spreadsheets a lot more times than your Python ones . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M It is quite okay. Spreadsheet can be very handy for simpler problems and definitely very visual. Now I am learning Quantitative Finance. It uses a lot for spreadsheet. I came from a commercial background. But it cannot handle when require a lot of computing. I will write wiki on spreadsheet when I find time. But I never find time.

@Chew-Seong Cheong Please do write a wiki sir , since the way that you use Spreadsheets , it will be very useful for people like me who rely a lot on Coding , you know just for a change of scenario :) Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago
