## Newton’s method with 10 lines of Python

I’m starting a new series of blog posts, called “XY in less than 10 lines of Python“. This first one is about Newton’s method, which is an old numerical approximation technique that could be used to find the roots of complex polynomials and any differentiable function. Let’s say we have a complicated polynomial: and we want to find its roots. Unfortunately we know from the Galois …

## Solving “real world” problems with SymPy

SymPy is an amazing library for symbolic mathematics in Python. It’s like Mathematica, and its online shell version along with SymPy Gamma  is pretty much like Wolfram Alpha (WA). OK, I know you can ask WA some pretty cool questions, but let’s face it, most of use just want to find the derivative of a function, or simplify an expression, and not …

## MIFS – parallelized Mutual Information based Feature Selection module

TL,DR: I wrapped up three mutual information based feature selection methods in a scikit-learn like module. You can find it on my GitHub. It is very easy to use, you can run the example.py or import it into your project and apply it to your data like any other scikit-learn method.
