Learn to use IPython and Jupyter Notebook for your data analysis and visualization work.
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book is intended for anyone interested in numerical computing and data science: students, researchers, teachers, engineers, analysts, and hobbyists. A basic knowledge of Python/NumPy is recommended. Some skills in mathematics will help you understand the theory behind the computational methods.
What You Will Learn
Python is one of the leading open source platforms for data science and numerical computing. IPython and the associated Jupyter Notebook offer efficient interfaces to Python for data analysis and interactive visualization, and they constitute an ideal gateway to the platform.
IPython Interactive Computing and Visualization Cookbook, Second Edition contains many ready-to-use, focused recipes for high-performance scientific computing and data analysis, from the latest IPython/Jupyter features to the most advanced tricks, to help you write better and faster code. You will apply these state-of-the-art methods to various real-world examples, illustrating topics in applied mathematics, scientific modeling, and machine learning.
The first part of the book covers programming techniques: code quality and reproducibility, code optimization, high-performance computing through just-in-time compilation, parallel computing, and graphics card programming. The second part tackles data science, statistics, machine learning, signal and image processing, dynamical systems, and pure and applied mathematics.
Style and approach
IPython Interactive Computing and Visualization Cookbook, Second Edition is a practical, hands-on book that will teach you how to analyze and visualize all kinds of data in the Jupyter Notebook.
