Python group June meeting - Matlab to Python Ben Nuttall 5/18/12 1:38 AM
The other day I heard Daley tell someone "There's nothing you can do in Matlab that you can't do in Python" - and I thought it would be fun to prove him right!

I studied Maths at uni (finished last year) and did plenty of cool stuff in Matlab including dynamical simulation, awesome graphing/plotting and systems analysis. I have plenty of material we could try to reproduce in Python. I've done very little of this sort of thing in Python but I know a few of you have use NumPy, SciPy, etc. It would be great to look at some libraries which would help us achieve this.

One of my lecturers wrote a book called 'Dynamical Systems with Applications using ...' [a version for Matlab, Maple and Mathematica] http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dynamical-Systems-Applications-using-MATLAB%C2%AE/dp/0817643214

Should make a good coding challenge for us!

After having enjoyed Jonathan S's talk on NumPy some months ago I'd welcome an excuse to reinforce my knowledge of that library.

I reckon this would be an interesting exercise for next month's meeting.  Count me in!

“etc” above will almost certainly include Matplotlib.

Oh this sounds good.  Unfortunately though I won't be able to attend as I'll be fleeing the country before the next meeting.

Numpy, Scipy and matplotlib will likely keep you busy for a couple of hours but other packages you may want to take a brief look at might include scikits.{learn, image, timeseries, etc} ( http://projects.scipy.org/scikits ), Orange ( http://orange.biolab.si/ ) and Pandas ( http://pandas.pydata.org/ )

I hope it is a good session and hopefully any code produced will eventually find its way online.

Cheers
Jonathan
