NumPy - fundamental package for scientific computing with Python

  •        0

NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python. Numerical Python adds a fast and sophisticated N-dimensional array facility to the Python language. 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.
