It has very good numerical computation capabilities, but it does not
really do "math" (at least not what a mathemetician would consider

If you want to do calculations on numbers (integral, real, complex,
vectors, matrixes), analyze and visualize data (stuff that was
traditionally done in Fortran), then Python is brilliant.

If you want to do "math" (as in the study of number theory,
topologies, proofs, and so on) then no.  Python is not a good choice.
