Python on Computation, Math and Statistics

P: n/a
I would hope Python is doing a lot of standard computations beyond
arithmetic. Trig functions and more. Comments?

Bad google day?

http://docs.python.org/lib/numeric.html

Additionally, there are several scientific extensions, like SciPy,
Numeric/Numpy and so forth.

Google? What's that? Thanks. I like to get a insider's view when I know
experts are out there. So now I ask a deeper question. Are there matrix
computation libraries or even statistical (regression, factor analysis)
libraries?

That's your idea of an "in depth question"?

Did you even consider googling the projects I told you about? Reading up
on them just the tiniest?

http://www.scipy.org/

"""
SciPy (pronounced "Sigh Pie") is open-source software for mathematics,
science, and engineering. It is also the name of a very popular
conference on scientific programming with Python. The SciPy library
depends on NumPy, which provides convenient and fast N-dimensional array
manipulation. 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 and optimization. Together, they run
on all popular operating systems, are quick to install, and are free of
charge. NumPy and SciPy are easy to use, but powerful enough to be
depended upon by some of the world's leading scientists and engineers.
If you need to manipulate numbers on a computer and display or publish
the results, give SciPy a try!

Or do you wish a comprehensive overview as Powerpoint presentation in
your favorite colors?

If you are so inclined you can use R functions from Python (look for R
and Python in your favorite search engine).

FYI the "insiders" and "experts" out there appreciate knowing that you
did a little work on your own before just posting questions. "I like
to get a insider's view when I know experts are out there" translates
to "My time is more valuable than other peoples', so I'll just ask
them to answer my questions instead of doing 5 minutes of digging for
myself."

Comments? Here's mine: go away and come back after you've done some
homework.

Try SAGE: http://www.sagemath.org/
