Python for Econometrics
Revision as of 08:03, 22 March 2012 by KevinSheppard
Python is a widely used general purpose programming language, which happens to be well suited to Econometrics and other more general purpose data analysis tasks. These notes provide an introduction to Python for a beginning programmer. They may also be useful for an experienced Python programmer interested in using NumPy, SciPy, and matplotlib for numerical and statistical analaysis (in this case, much of the beginning can be skipped).
This is the code directly from the notes. It has been directly stripped from the master document, and allows for simple copy-and-paste execution.
These solutions files contain answer to the exercises at the end of the chapters. They are formatted for IPython's Demo module, and instructions for use are located in the docstring.
