Python - Handling matrices with NumPy (slides)

This course material presents the manipulation of matrices using NumPy. The array type is common to vectors and matrices. The special feature is the addition of a second dimension in order to have values within a  rows x columns structure.

The matrices pave the way to operators which play a fundamental role in statistical modeling and exploratory data analysis (e.g. matrix inversion, solving equations, calculation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, singular value decomposition, etc.).

Keywords: langage python, numpy, vector, matrix, array, creation, extraction
Slides: NumPy Matrices
Datasets and programs: Matrices
