Re: Python tricks

I haven't seen it used very widely. Where I work, if the performance offered by Python with Numpy with Pandas with TensorFlow is not good enough, someone writes the core part in C++ and exposes it to Python via Swig. I am not a compiler builder but I reckon not everything can be optimised by Numba ...

Boris Johnson always had a Churchillian complex, but I didn't expect him to aspire to have another Gallipoli.
Armchair psychiatry is fun, isn’t it?! Am not sure of its reliability though!

Now I think the general form of "[$] \cdots [$]" can be found or is actually known (see link above to ArXiv paper), but I am not sure what the "best" way is to cut-off or Taylor expand the "[$] \cdots [$]" part, i.e. to ...

Re: Python tricks

That's not what Python was meant for. You're far better off calling those libraries from Python, passing them Numpy arrays as argument to chew over.
OK, so why is is bad to call Boost rb trees from Python? An extra layer of indirection?
Who said it's bad?
