Intro And Installation

Numpy is a linear algebra library used for scientific computing in python. It provides a very important feature of arrays and along with it the tools needed to work with arrays. Numpy has bindings to C libraries , meaning it is incredibly fast and efficient.

Major data scientist libraries like Pandas and Matplotlib are based on numpy. This makes numpy the building block of scientific computing with python.

Numpy can be installed using two methods :

  • Anaconda distribution package
  • pip installation

If you are using the anaconda distribution package for python then Open the anaconda prompt and type the following :

conda install numpy

If you are not using anaconda then you can use the windows command prompt or terminal to do the same by typing the following code:

pip install numpy
That is it. Now we are all set to dive into the world of Numpy.
