Wrapper of Numpy in Python3.
This Python 3.2 wrapper module, requires Numpy to be installed. For a slower module that is written in pure Python, consider “Matalg”.
The well documented module is easy to use and allows use of the usual scalar variable syntax for the more complex matrix operations. Thus, for matrix multiplication of matrices ma and mb one simply writes:
result = ma * mb
It is assumed that all elements of matrices are floats. For the solution of equations ma * x = rhs (with unknown x = result), one only needs to write:
result = ma ** rhs
Matrix naming is left to the end user. The module is well documented with pdf files quickStart, userManual and referenceManual.
Quick Start will get an experienced user up to speed very quickly. User Manual has an explanation and examples of most capabilities of the package, whilst the Reference Manual lists all the methods and functions of the module with a brief explanation of each. In addition to the supplied pdf files, the information may also be accessible on the web at:
The author is interested in your comments of this project and will consider all reasonable requests for extensions and improvements and/or bug fixes of the module. Your emails will be appreciated:
The development and initial testing of the package was on a kubuntu 11.04 “natty” platform.
The module is licensed under GPL and is Open Source Freeware. You are welcome to copy it and to share it.
