# SciPy

Learn about Python's scientific computing library, SciPy. SciPy is a Python open-source library which has functions that supports mathematical operations, scientific computing, and other technical problems.

## We'll cover the following

SciPy is an open-source Python-based library that provides support for mathematical, engineering, technical, and scientific computing. SciPy packages are generally needed for scientific computing. Scipy functions are optimized to perform high-level executions. The library is very easy to use, and has good documentation support. It can work with NumPy arrays, as SciPy is built on top of NumPy. Additionally, SciPy contains more data science-related functions than NumPy. It is freely available, as it was created under the BSD license, which allows users to access SciPy’s source code and use it in any way.
