SciPy 0.18.0 Release Notes

SciPy 0.18.0 is the culmination of 6 months of hard work. It contains
many new features, numerous bug-fixes, improved test coverage and
better documentation. There have been a number of deprecations and
API changes in this release, which are documented below. All users
are encouraged to upgrade to this release, as there are a large number
of bug-fixes and optimizations. Moreover, our development attention
will now shift to bug-fix releases on the 0.19.x branch, and on adding
new features on the master branch.

This release requires Python 2.7 or 3.4-3.5 and NumPy 1.7.1 or greater.

Highlights of this release include:

  • - A new ODE solver for two-point boundary value problems, scipy.optimize.solve_bvp.
  • - A new class, CubicSpline, for cubic spline interpolation of data.
  • - N-dimensional tensor product polynomials, scipy.interpolate.NdPPoly.
  • - Spherical Voronoi diagrams, scipy.spatial.SphericalVoronoi.
  • - Support for discrete-time linear systems, scipy.signal.dlti.

New features

scipy.integrate improvements


A solver of two-point boundary value problems for ODE systems has been
implemented in scipy.integrate.solve_bvp. The solver allows for non-separated
boundary conditions, unknown parameters and certain singular terms. It finds
a C1 continious solution using a fourth-order collocation algorithm.

scipy.interpolate improvements


Cubic spline interpolation is now available via scipy.interpolate.CubicSpline.
This class represents a piecewise cubic polynomial passing through given points
and C2 continuous. It is represented in the standard polynomial basis on each
segment.

A representation of n-dimensional tensor product piecewise polynomials is
available as the scipy.interpolate.NdPPoly class.

Univariate piecewise polynomial classes, PPoly and Bpoly, can now be
evaluated on periodic domains. Use extrapolate="periodic" keyword
argument for this.

scipy.fftpack improvements


scipy.fftpack.next_fast_len function computes the next "regular" number for
FFTPACK. Padding the input to this length can give significant performance
increase for scipy.fftpack.fft.

scipy.signal improvements


Resampling using polyphase filtering has been implemented in the function
scipy.signal.resample_poly. This method upsamples a signal, applies a
zero-phase low-pass FIR filter, and downsamples using scipy.signal.upfirdn
(which is also new in 0.18.0). This method can be faster than FFT-based
filtering provided by scipy.signal.resample for some signals.

scipy.signal.firls, which constructs FIR filters using least-squares error
minimization, was added.

scipy.signal.sosfiltfilt, which does forward-backward filtering like
scipy.signal.filtfilt but for second-order sections, was added.

Discrete-time linear systems


`scipy.signal.dlti` provides an implementation of discrete-time linear systems.
Accordingly, the `StateSpace`, `TransferFunction` and `ZerosPolesGain` classes
have learned a the new keyword, `dt`, which can be used to create discrete-time
instances of the corresponding system representation.


`scipy.sparse` improvements
- ---------------------------

The functions `sum`, `max`, `mean`, `min`, `transpose`, and `reshape` in
`scipy.sparse` have had their signatures augmented with additional arguments
and functionality so as to improve compatibility with analogously defined
functions in `numpy`.

Sparse matrices now have a `count_nonzero` method, which counts the number of
nonzero elements in the matrix. Unlike `getnnz()` and ``nnz`` propety,
which return the number of stored entries (the length of the data attribute),
this method counts the actual number of non-zero entries in data.


`scipy.optimize` improvements
- -----------------------------

The implementation of Nelder-Mead minimization,
`scipy.minimize(..., method="Nelder-Mead")`, obtained a new keyword,
`initial_simplex`, which can be used to specify the initial simplex for the
optimization process.

Initial step size selection in CG and BFGS minimizers has been improved. We
expect that this change will improve numeric stability of optimization in some
cases. See pull request gh-5536 for details.

Handling of infinite bounds in SLSQP optimization has been improved. We expect
that this change will improve numeric stability of optimization in the some
cases. See pull request gh-6024 for details.

A large suite of global optimization benchmarks has been added to 
``scipy/benchmarks/go_benchmark_functions``. See pull request gh-4191 for details.

Nelder-Mead and Powell minimization will now only set defaults for
maximum iterations or function evaluations if neither limit is set by
the caller. In some cases with a slow converging function and only 1
limit set, the minimization may continue for longer than with previous
versions and so is more likely to reach convergence. See issue gh-5966.

`scipy.stats` improvements
- --------------------------

Trapezoidal distribution has been implemented as `scipy.stats.trapz`.
Skew normal distribution has been implemented as `scipy.stats.skewnorm`.
Burr type XII distribution has been implemented as `scipy.stats.burr12`.
Three- and four-parameter kappa distributions have been implemented as
`scipy.stats.kappa3` and `scipy.stats.kappa4`, respectively.

New `scipy.stats.iqr` function computes the interquartile region of a
distribution.

Random matrices

scipy.stats.special_ortho_group and scipy.stats.ortho_group provide
generators of random matrices in the SO(N) and O(N) groups, respectively. They
generate matrices in the Haar distribution, the only uniform distribution on
these group manifolds.

scipy.stats.random_correlation provides a generator for random
correlation matrices, given specified eigenvalues.

scipy.linalg improvements


scipy.linalg.svd gained a new keyword argument, lapack_driver. Available
drivers are gesdd (default) and gesvd.

scipy.linalg.lapack.ilaver returns the version of the LAPACK library SciPy
links to.

scipy.spatial improvements


Boolean distances, scipy.spatial.pdist, have been sped up. Improvements vary
by the function and the input size. In many cases, one can expect a speed-up
of x2--x10.

New class scipy.spatial.SphericalVoronoi constructs Voronoi diagrams on the
surface of a sphere. See pull request gh-5232 for details.

scipy.cluster improvements


A new clustering algorithm, the nearest neighbor chain algorithm, has been
implemented for scipy.cluster.hierarchy.linkage. As a result, one can expect
a significant algorithmic improvement (:math:O(N^2) instead of :math:O(N^3))
for several linkage methods.

scipy.special improvements


The new function scipy.special.loggamma computes the principal branch of the
logarithm of the Gamma function. For real input, loggamma is compatible
with scipy.special.gammaln. For complex input, it has more consistent
behavior in the complex plane and should be preferred over gammaln.

Vectorized forms of spherical Bessel functions have been implemented as
scipy.special.spherical_jn, scipy.special.spherical_kn,
scipy.special.spherical_in and scipy.special.spherical_yn.
They are recommended for use over sph_* functions, which are now deprecated.

Several special functions have been extended to the complex domain and/or
have seen domain/stability improvements. This includes spence, digamma,
log1p and several others.

Deprecated features

The cross-class properties of lti systems have been deprecated. The
following properties/setters will raise a DeprecationWarning:

Name - (accessing/setting raises warning) - (setting raises warning)

  • StateSpace - (num, den, gain) - (zeros, poles)
  • TransferFunction (A, B, C, D, gain) - (zeros, poles)
  • ZerosPolesGain (A, B, C, D, num, den) - ()

Spherical Bessel functions, sph_in, sph_jn, sph_kn, sph_yn,
sph_jnyn and sph_inkn have been deprecated in favor of
scipy.special.spherical_jn and spherical_kn, spherical_yn,
spherical_in.

The following functions in scipy.constants are deprecated: C2K, K2C,
C2F, F2C, F2K and K2F. They are superceded by a new function
scipy.constants.convert_temperature that can perform all those conversions
plus to/from the Rankine temperature scale.

Backwards incompatible changes

scipy.optimize


The convergence criterion for optimize.bisect,
optimize.brentq, optimize.brenth, and optimize.ridder now
works the same as numpy.allclose.

scipy.ndimage


The offset in ndimage.iterpolation.affine_transform
is now consistently added after the matrix is applied,
independent of if the matrix is specified using a one-dimensional
or a two-dimensional array.

scipy.stats


stats.ks_2samp used to return nonsensical values if the input was
not real or contained nans. It now raises an exception for such inputs.

Several deprecated methods of scipy.stats distributions have been removed:
est_loc_scale, vecfunc, veccdf and vec_generic_moment.

Deprecated functions nanmean, nanstd and nanmedian have been removed
from scipy.stats. These functions were deprecated in scipy 0.15.0 in favor
of their numpy equivalents.

A bug in the rvs() method of the distributions in scipy.stats has
been fixed. When arguments to rvs() were given that were shaped for
broadcasting, in many cases the returned random samples were not random.
A simple example of the problem is stats.norm.rvs(loc=np.zeros(10)).
Because of the bug, that call would return 10 identical values. The bug
only affected code that relied on the broadcasting of the shape, location
and scale parameters.

The rvs() method also accepted some arguments that it should not have.
There is a potential for backwards incompatibility in cases where rvs()
accepted arguments that are not, in fact, compatible with broadcasting.
An example is

stats.gamma.rvs([2, 5, 10, 15], size=(2,2))

The shape of the first argument is not compatible with the requested size,
but the function still returned an array with shape (2, 2). In scipy 0.18,
that call generates a ValueError.

scipy.io


scipy.io.netcdf masking now gives precedence to the _FillValue attribute
over the missing_value attribute, if both are given. Also, data are only
treated as missing if they match one of these attributes exactly: values that
differ by roundoff from _FillValue or missing_value are no longer
treated as missing values.

scipy.interpolate


scipy.interpolate.PiecewisePolynomial class has been removed. It has been
deprecated in scipy 0.14.0, and scipy.interpolate.BPoly.from_derivatives serves
as a drop-in replacement.

Other changes

Scipy now uses setuptools for its builds instead of plain distutils. This
fixes usage of install_requires='scipy' in the setup.py files of
projects that depend on Scipy (see Numpy issue gh-6551 for details). It
potentially affects the way that build/install methods for Scipy itself behave
though. Please report any unexpected behavior on the Scipy issue tracker.

PR #6240 <https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/6240>__
changes the interpretation of the maxfun option in L-BFGS-B based routines
in the scipy.optimize module.
An L-BFGS-B search consists of multiple iterations,
with each iteration consisting of one or more function evaluations.
Whereas the old search strategy terminated immediately upon reaching maxfun
function evaluations, the new strategy allows the current iteration
to finish despite reaching maxfun.

The bundled copy of Qhull in the scipy.spatial subpackage has been upgraded to
version 2015.2.

The bundled copy of ARPACK in the scipy.sparse.linalg subpackage has been
upgraded to arpack-ng 3.3.0.

The bundled copy of SuperLU in the scipy.sparse subpackage has been upgraded
to version 5.1.1.

SciPy 0.17.0 Release Notes

SciPy 0.17.0 is the culmination of 6 months of hard work. It contains
many new features, numerous bug-fixes, improved test coverage and
better documentation. There have been a number of deprecations and
API changes in this release, which are documented below. All users
are encouraged to upgrade to this release, as there are a large number
of bug-fixes and optimizations. Moreover, our development attention
will now shift to bug-fix releases on the 0.17.x branch, and on adding
new features on the master branch.

This release requires Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.2-3.5 and NumPy 1.6.2 or greater.

Release highlights:

- New functions for linear and nonlinear least squares optimization with
  constraints: `scipy.optimize.lsq_linear` and
  `scipy.optimize.least_squares`
- Support for fitting with bounds in `scipy.optimize.curve_fit`.
- Significant improvements to `scipy.stats`, providing many functions with
  better handing of inputs which have NaNs or are empty, improved
  documentation, and consistent behavior between `scipy.stats` and
  `scipy.stats.mstats`.
- Significant performance improvements and new functionality in
  `scipy.spatial.cKDTree`.

New features

scipy.cluster improvements


A new function scipy.cluster.hierarchy.cut_tree, which determines a cut tree
from a linkage matrix, was added.

scipy.io improvements


scipy.io.mmwrite gained support for symmetric sparse matrices.

scipy.io.netcdf gained support for masking and scaling data based on data
attributes.

scipy.optimize improvements


Linear assignment problem solver


`scipy.optimize.linear_sum_assignment` is a new function for solving the
linear sum assignment problem.  It uses the Hungarian algorithm (Kuhn-Munkres).

Least squares optimization

A new function for nonlinear least squares optimization with constraints was
added: scipy.optimize.least_squares. It provides several methods:
Levenberg-Marquardt for unconstrained problems, and two trust-region methods
for constrained ones. Furthermore it provides different loss functions.
New trust-region methods also handle sparse Jacobians.

A new function for linear least squares optimization with constraints was
added: scipy.optimize.lsq_linear. It provides a trust-region method as well
as an implementation of the Bounded-Variable Least-Squares (BVLS) algorithm.

scipy.optimize.curve_fit now supports fitting with bounds.

scipy.signal improvements


A mode keyword was added to scipy.signal.spectrogram, to let it return
other spectrograms than power spectral density.

scipy.stats improvements


Many functions in scipy.stats have gained a nan_policy keyword, which
allows specifying how to treat input with NaNs in them: propagate the NaNs,
raise an error, or omit the NaNs.

Many functions in scipy.stats have been improved to correctly handle input
arrays that are empty or contain infs/nans.

A number of functions with the same name in scipy.stats and
scipy.stats.mstats were changed to have matching signature and behavior.
See gh-5474 <https://github.com/scipy/scipy/issues/5474>__ for details.

scipy.stats.binom_test and scipy.stats.mannwhitneyu gained a keyword
alternative, which allows specifying the hypothesis to test for.
Eventually all hypothesis testing functions will get this keyword.

For methods of many continuous distributions, complex input is now accepted.

Matrix normal distribution has been implemented as scipy.stats.matrix_normal.

scipy.sparse improvements


The axis keyword was added to sparse norms, scipy.sparse.linalg.norm.

scipy.spatial improvements


scipy.spatial.cKDTree was partly rewritten for improved performance and
several new features were added to it:

  • - the query_ball_point method became significantly faster
  • - query and query_ball_point gained an n_jobs keyword for parallel execution
  • - build and query methods now release the GIL
  • - full pickling support
  • - support for periodic spaces
  • - the sparse_distance_matrix method can now return and sparse matrix type

scipy.interpolate improvements


Out-of-bounds behavior of scipy.interpolate.interp1d has been improved.
Use a two-element tuple for the fill_value argument to specify separate
fill values for input below and above the interpolation range.
Linear and nearest interpolation kinds of scipy.interpolate.interp1d support
extrapolation via the fill_value="extrapolate" keyword.

fill_value can also be set to an array-like (or a two-element tuple of
array-likes for separate below and above values) so long as it broadcasts
properly to the non-interpolated dimensions of an array. This was implicitly
supported by previous versions of scipy, but support has now been formalized
and gets compatibility-checked before use. For example, a set of y values
to interpolate with shape (2, 3, 5) interpolated along the last axis (2)
could accept a fill_value array with shape () (singleton), (1,),
(2, 1), (1, 3), (3,), or (2, 3); or it can be a 2-element tuple
to specify separate below and above bounds, where each of the two tuple
elements obeys proper broadcasting rules.

scipy.linalg improvements


The default algorithm for scipy.linalg.leastsq has been changed to use
LAPACK's function *gelsd. Users wanting to get the previous behavior
can use a new keyword lapack_driver="gelss" (allowed values are
"gelss", "gelsd" and "gelsy").

scipy.sparse matrices and linear operators now support the matmul (@)
operator when available (Python 3.5+). See
PEP 465

A new function scipy.linalg.ordqz, for QZ decomposition with reordering, has
been added.

Deprecated features

scipy.stats.histogram is deprecated in favor of np.histogram, which is
faster and provides the same functionality.

scipy.stats.threshold and scipy.mstats.threshold are deprecated
in favor of np.clip. See issue #617 for details.

scipy.stats.ss is deprecated. This is a support function, not meant to
be exposed to the user. Also, the name is unclear. See issue #663 for details.

scipy.stats.square_of_sums is deprecated. This too is a support function
not meant to be exposed to the user. See issues #665 and #663 for details.

scipy.stats.f_value, scipy.stats.f_value_multivariate,
scipy.stats.f_value_wilks_lambda, and scipy.mstats.f_value_wilks_lambda
are deprecated. These are related to ANOVA, for which scipy.stats provides
quite limited functionality and these functions are not very useful standalone.
See issues #660 and #650 for details.

scipy.stats.chisqprob is deprecated. This is an alias. stats.chi2.sf
should be used instead.

scipy.stats.betai is deprecated. This is an alias for special.betainc
which should be used instead.

Backwards incompatible changes

The functions stats.trim1 and stats.trimboth now make sure the
elements trimmed are the lowest and/or highest, depending on the case.
Slicing without at least partial sorting was previously done, but didn't
make sense for unsorted input.

When variable_names is set to an empty list, scipy.io.loadmat now
correctly returns no values instead of all the contents of the MAT file.

Element-wise multiplication of sparse matrices now returns a sparse result
in all cases. Previously, multiplying a sparse matrix with a dense matrix or
array would return a dense matrix.

The function misc.lena has been removed due to license incompatibility.

The constructor for sparse.coo_matrix no longer accepts (None, (m,n))
to construct an all-zero matrix of shape (m,n). This functionality was
deprecated since at least 2007 and was already broken in the previous SciPy
release. Use coo_matrix((m,n)) instead.

The Cython wrappers in linalg.cython_lapack for the LAPACK routines
*gegs, *gegv, *gelsx, *geqpf, *ggsvd, *ggsvp,
*lahrd, *latzm, *tzrqf have been removed since these routines
are not present in the new LAPACK 3.6.0 release. With the exception of
the routines *ggsvd and *ggsvp, these were all deprecated in favor
of routines that are currently present in our Cython LAPACK wrappers.

Because the LAPACK *gegv routines were removed in LAPACK 3.6.0. The
corresponding Python wrappers in scipy.linalg.lapack are now
deprecated and will be removed in a future release. The source files for
these routines have been temporarily included as a part of scipy.linalg
so that SciPy can be built against LAPACK versions that do not provide
these deprecated routines.

Other changes

Html and pdf documentation of development versions of Scipy is now
automatically rebuilt after every merged pull request.

scipy.constants is updated to the CODATA 2014 recommended values.

Usage of scipy.fftpack functions within Scipy has been changed in such a
way that PyFFTW <http://hgomersall.github.io/pyFFTW/>__ can easily replace
scipy.fftpack functions (with improved performance). See
gh-5295 <https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/5295>__ for details.

The imread functions in scipy.misc and scipy.ndimage were unified, for
which a mode argument was added to scipy.misc.imread. Also, bugs for
1-bit and indexed RGB image formats were fixed.

runtests.py, the development script to build and test Scipy, now allows
building in parallel with --parallel.
