Elegant SciPyThe Art of Scientific PythonBy: Juan NunezIglesias, Stéfan van der Walt, Harriet Dashnow Publication Date: 20170831 Number of pages: 280 ISBN10: 9781491922873 ISBN13: 9781491922873 Welcome to Scientific Python and its community. If you’re a scientist who programs with Python, this practical guide not only teaches you the fundamental parts of SciPy and libraries related to it, but also gives you a taste for beautiful, easytoread code that you can use in practice. You’ll learn how to write elegant code that’s clear, concise, and efficient at executing the task at hand. Throughout the book, you’ll work with examples from the wider scientific Python ecosystem, using code that illustrates principles outlined in the book. Using actual scientific data, you’ll work on realworld problems with SciPy, NumPy, Pandas, scikitimage, and other Python libraries. Explore the NumPy array, the data structure that underlies numerical scientific computationUse quantile normalization to ensure that measurements fit a specific distributionRepresent separate regions in an image with a Region Adjacency GraphConvert temporal or spatial data into frequency domain data with the Fast Fourier TransformSolve sparse matrix problems, including image segmentations, with SciPy’s sparse modulePerform linear algebra by using SciPy packagesExplore image alignment (registration) with SciPy’s optimize moduleProcess large datasets with Python data streaming primitives and the Toolz libraryBook preview
