Project description

Statistical tools for teaching at NBI

This package extends some of the existing tools in NumPy and SciPy with some useful features designed to make life easier for the students at the Niels Bohr Institute.


  • Reporting scientific results, including proper rounding
  • Tabulation of data useful in Jupyter Notebooks
  • Visualisation of data in 1 and many dimensions
  • Robust calculations of sample means, variances, and covariances, for unweighted and weighted samples. For weighted samples, both frequency and non-frequency weights are supported.
  • Histogramming
  • Sampling of arbitrary PDFs
  • Curve fitting using
    • Linear least squares
    • Non-linear least squares
    • Maximum likelihood estimates
  • Representation of fit confidence contours
