Most tutorials' examples are based in operations with strings and 
text in general. Are there any Python tutorials that stress its math 
capabilities? In particular, I have noticed that there is a limit on 
the integers that Python can handle, but I don't know exactly to what 
extent this can be modified. I would like to do operations with 
matrices, factoring integers and floating point operations. Where 
should I look for help on these matters?
