Basic linear regression
Expected result: See the official Scipy documentation for details about
linregress
. A more complete regression model can be obtained with the OLS function in the statsmodels library. 
Integrating an initial value problem (single ODE)
We want to integrate a single equation \(\displaystyle \frac{dy(t)}{dt} = f(t, y)\) with a given initial condition \(y(t=0)=y_0\). There are several integrators available in ...

Building a simple interactive 2ddata viewer with Matplotlib
This is a very simple, but practical 2ddata viewer, which uses only matplotlib widgets. Click: on the image or the plots to get a cross section  x or y depending ...

Find the points at which two given functions intersect
The code considers the case of finding the intersection of a polynomial, \(y=x^2\) and a line, \(y=x+1\). Write these functions in the form \(\mathbf{f(x ...

Principal components analysis (PCA) using a sequential method
The singular value decomposition is usually presented as the way to calculate the PCA decomposition of a data matrix. The NIPALS algorithm is a very computationally tractable way of calculating ...

Using Prony's method to fit a sum of exponentials
This a basic implementation of Prony’s method. In this form, it is very susceptible to noise. Added by Jose: I had some problems using “lstsq” from scipy.linalg that ...

Guo, A Simple Algorithm for Fitting a Gaussian Function, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, September 2011, pp. 134–137. 
Simple interactive Matplotlib plots
Interactive graphs with Matplotlib have haunted me. So here I have collected a number of tricks that should make interactive use of plots simpler. The functions below show how to ...

Plot an ellipse
The code will plot any ellipse where you specify the major and minor axis distances, optional translation by \(x, y\) units, and an optional rotation. This revision deploys numpy broadcasting ...

pymls  solving bounded linear least squares problems
Based on mls_alloc from the matlab toolbox Qcat by Ola Harkegard, this package allows to solve bounded least squares problems. It is also possible to put weights on your columns ...
