No! They are just two too different kind of beasts! Python is very versatile widely spread and used open programming language with a lot of very useful libraries available, while Mathcad is a dying closed proprietary program used by an ever-shrinking minority. And I say this even though I really love Mathcad (the real one, not Prime , of course).

But you may like to compare MatLab and Python if you feel so 😉

Re: Mathcad vs Python

Why would you want to compare them? The best software is the one you know best! Granted Python is not a software as such. These are different things as pointed out by @Werner_E
While I could see some simple examples say solving the dynamic response of a SDoF ie a simple Differential equation solving as both tools have “built-in” function I am struggling to see where is the added value of such proposed book

Re: Mathcad vs Python

The problem needs to be solved like this!
First, you need to solve it with Mathcad, and then translate this solution into languages Python, MATLAB, C etc.
