This is a center for all additional documentation to NumPy and SciPy. The main documentation can be found at http://docs.scipy.org/

Numpy and Scipy are two independent packages, but from historical reasons, the documentation for both of them appears on this page. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of outdated documentation to predecessors (or older versions of NumPy) floating on the internet. If you are confused about the predecessors of NumPy, read a History of SciPy -- a summary of the events that led to SciPy and NumPy.

Note also that the NumPy/SciPy Documentation project is in progress! See (and help write) the improved docstrings.

NumPy

NumPy is a standalone package that provides array manipulation tools for python.

Scipy

The SciPy library is built to work with NumPy arrays, and provides many user-friendly and efficient numerical routines such as routines for numerical integration or optimization.

Other

Other (mostly unofficial) documentation to NumPy and SciPy.
