SciPy 2007

→ Back to Python, conferences

General

Conference website

→ Useful scientific Python computing resources

→ Schrodinger evolution simulation by Nagel/Perez (from scipy.org cookbook)

→ Installing numpy and scipy: in recent versions, edit site.cfg (in dist directories) for location of blas, lapack, fftw… OS X (with devtools) has accelerated blas and lapack (note a BLAS Altivec bug in OS X 10.4). Note that numpy release 1.0.3 breaks scipy build (it may be enough to link scipy/scipy to scipy/Lib).

→ New traits and ets repository; uses EasyInstall, very nice installation engine

→ Considered the NVIDA G8800 GTX as a platform for CUDA

→ Mac: building universal libraries

→ Notebook progress in ipython?

Tutorials
