SciPy 0.14.0 Description:
SciPy is an open source, freely distributed and cross-platform library software implemented in and designed for the Python programming language. It aims to offer a set of command-line utilities that can be used for engineering and science tasks in Python applications. It is part of a huge project that provides several Python libraries heavily used on today’s apps, such as NumPy, a base N-dimensional array library, Sympy, a library for symbolic mathematics, Matplotlib, a comprehensive 2D plotting library, IPython, an enhanced interactive console, the nose framework for testing Python code, as well as the pandas library for data structures and analysis. SciPy includes modules for statistics, optimization, integration, Fourier transforms, linear algebra, signal and image processing, genetic algorithms, ODE solvers, etc. It also provides numerous efficient and user-friendly numerical routines, such as routines for numerical optimization and integration.
