  • Execute complex linear algebra and mathematical computations

In Detail

In today's world of science and technology, the hype is all about speed and flexibility. When it comes to scientific computing, NumPy is on the top of the list. NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python. NumPy will give you both speed and high productivity. Save thousands of dollars on expensive software, while keeping all the flexibility and power of your favourite programming language.

NumPy 1.5 Beginner's Guide will teach you about NumPy from scratch. It includes everything from installation, functions, matrices, and modules to testing, all explained with appropriate examples.

Numpy 1.5 Beginner's Guide will teach you about installing and using NumPy and related concepts.

This book will give you a solid foundation in NumPy arrays and universal functions. At the end of the book, we will explore related scientific computing projects such as Matplotlib for plotting and the SciPy project through examples.

NumPy 1.5 Beginner's Guide will help you be productive with NumPy and write clean and fast code.

What you will learn from this book

  • Installing NumPy
  • Learn to load arrays from files and write arrays to files
  • Work with universal functions
  • Create NumPy matrices
  • Use basic modules that NumPy offers
  • Write unit tests for NumPy code
  • Plot mathematical NumPy results with Matplotlib
  • Integrate with Scipy, a high level Python scientific computing framework built on top of NumPy

Approach

Institutionalization of Usability : A Step-by-Step Guide

At one time, computer hardware was the key differentiator in information technology—what gave an organization it's competitive edge. Then, as hardware prices fell, software took center stage. Today, software having become a broadly shared commodity, a new differentiator has emerged—usability. Applications, including...

Introduction to Assembly Language Programming: For Pentium and RISC Processors (Texts in Computer Science)
Introduction to Assembly Language Programming: For Pentium and RISC Processors (Texts in Computer Science)
Assembly language continues to hold a core position in the programming world because of its similar structure to machine language and its very close links to underlying computer-processor architecture and design. These features allow for high processing speed, low memory demands, and the capacity to act directly on the system's hardware. This...
