SciPy and NumPy

Want to learn SciPy and NymPy quickly? Cut through the complexity of online documentation with this concise and illustrated book, and discover how easily you can get up to speed with these Python libraries. You’ll understand why they’re powerful enough for many of today’s leading scientists and engineers.

Learn how to use NumPy for numerical processing, including array indexing, math operations, and loading and saving data. With SciPy, you’ll work with advanced mathematical functions such as optimization, interpolation, integration, clustering, statistics, and other tools that take scientific programming to a whole new level. This book also introduces add-on SciKits packages that focus on advanced imaging algorithms and machine learning.
