coordinate efforts to develop a common Python library. The aim of this library
was to cover much of the astronomy-specific functionality needed by
researchers, complementing more general standard scientific packages such as
-NumPy \citep{oliphant2006guide,van2011numpy} and SciPy \citep{jones2001scipy},
+\gls{numpy} and \gls{scipy} ,
which are invaluable for numerical array-based calculations, and more general
scientific algorithms (e.g. interpolation, integration, clustering, etc.)
