I'm just getting started with numpy/scipy and first would like to get

a view of what it can do and what it can't. The main idea is to move

from maple to python and the first thing that poped up is the fact

that maple is very convenient for both formal manipulations and exact

integer calculations. For instance if a matrix has integer entries and

the eigenvalues are integers maple can find these exactly.

Can numpy/scipy do this? Or the eigenvalues will always be floating

point numbers?

it might be better to ask this question on the scipy newsgroup

SciPy Users List <sc********@scipy.org>
