    • SciPy (pronounced “Sigh Pie”) is a computing environment and open source ecosystem of software for the Python programming language used by scientists, analysts and engineers doing scientific computing and technical computing. SciPy also refers to a specific open source library / Python package of algorithms and mathematical tools that form a core element of the SciPy environment for technical computing. The SciPy environment includes the NumPy and SciPy libraries, along with an expanding set of additional scientific computing libraries like IPython, Matplotlib, pandas and SymPy. It has similar users to other applications such as MATLAB, GNU Octave, and Scilab. The name SciPy is also used by a family of conferences for users and developers of these tools: SciPy (in the United States), EuroSciPy (in Europe) and (in India).

      SciPy contains modules for optimization, linear algebra, integration, interpolation, special functions, FFT, signal and image processing, ODE solvers and other tasks common in science and engineering.

      SciPy is currently distributed under the BSD license, and its development is sponsored by an open community of developers.
