The Python scientific visualisation landscape is huge. It is composed of a myriad of tools, ranging from the most versatile and widely used down to the more specialised and confidential. Some of these tools are community based while others are developed by companies. Some are made specifically for the web, others are for the desktop only, some deal with 3D and large data, while others target flawless 2D rendering.
The SciPy library, accompanied by its interdependent NumPy, offers Python programmers advanced functions that work with arrays and matrices. Each section presents a complete demo program for programmers to experiment with, carefully chosen examples to best illustrate each function, and resources for further learning. Use this e-book to install and edit SciPy, and use arrays, matrices, and combinatorics in Python programming.
A Whirlwind Tour of Python is a fast-paced introduction to essential features of the Python language, aimed at researchers and developers who are already familiar with programming in another language. The material is particularly designed for those who wish to use Python for data science and/or scientific programming, and in this capacity serves as an introduction to my longer book, The Python Data Science Handbook.
