Lists in Python

Lists are one of the central object types in Python and are often used to store complex information due to their flexibility and performance.

A list is a concatenation of data or object types and is also sometimes called a container. A list can be both homogeneous and heterogeneous in nature. A list is homogeneous if it contains data of only one type. If, on the other hand, a list contains different types of data or objects, we call it heterogeneous. Lists can take on very complex forms, for example, when lists are nested within one another. We speak of nesting when lists in turn contain lists.
