NpPlus - numpy and pyplot Enhancements
See complete documentation at http://npplus.readthedocs.io.
- A high performance piecewise polynomial class PwPoly supporting more methods than the scipy PPoly class, including a root finder and arithmetic operations.
- Simplified spline and polyline interpolating and fitting functions fully integrated with PwPoly, using just the solve_banded lapack function instead of fitpack.
- Simplified interfaces for linear and non-linear least squares fitting.
- A function decorator to replace the clumsy numpy.piecewise function.
- Array building functions which broadcast their arguments before concatenating them.
- Finite difference axis methods supplementing the existing diff and cumsum functions.
- Elementwise minimum and maximum functions taking any number of arguments.
- Ensure presence of matplotlib 2.0 colormaps viridis, etc., and provide an interface for using the qualitative colorbrewer color sets for line color cycles.
- Provide a simple presentation-quality matplotlib style.
- Provide wrappers for pyplot functions like plot that return unwanted objects, making them better for interactive use.
- Provide a module you can import from PYTHONSTARTUP similar to pylab, which fills interactive namespace with numpy and npplus, as well as turning on the pyplot interactive plotting mode.
