Fionn: 1.8.0 and 1.10.1, compiled with intel compilers, available in both python 2 and python 3
NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python. It contains among other things:
- a powerful N-dimensional array object
- sophisticated (broadcasting) functions
- tools for integrating C/C++ and Fortran code
- useful linear algebra, Fourier transform, and random number capabilities
Besides its obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and speedily integrate with a wide variety of databases.
NumPy is open source and the full text of its licensing terms can be found at http://www.numpy.org/license.html.
Loading NumPy module will also automatically load a compatible version of Python module which is ideally compiled with the same compiler (GCC or Intel) as the NumPy package.
