Python Data Analysis Cookbook, 9781785282287 (178528228X), Packt Publishing, 2016

Key Features

  • Analyze Big Data sets, create attractive visualizations, and manipulate and process various data types
  • Packed with rich recipes to help you learn and explore amazing algorithms for statistics and machine learning
  • Authored by Ivan Idris, expert in python programming and proud author of eight highly reviewed books

Book Description

Data analysis is a rapidly evolving field and Python is a multi-paradigm programming language suitable for object-oriented application development and functional design patterns. As Python offers a range of tools and libraries for all purposes, it has slowly evolved as the primary language for data science, including topics on: data analysis, visualization, and machine learning.

Python Data Analysis Cookbook focuses on reproducibility and creating production-ready systems. You will start with recipes that set the foundation for data analysis with libraries such as matplotlib, NumPy, and pandas. You will learn to create visualizations by choosing color maps and palettes then dive into statistical data analysis using distribution algorithms and correlations. You’ll then help you find your way around different data and numerical problems, get to grips with Spark and HDFS, and then set up migration scripts for web mining.

In this book, you will dive deeper into recipes on spectral analysis, smoothing, and bootstrapping methods. Moving on, you will learn to rank stocks and check market efficiency, then work with metrics and clusters. You will achieve parallelism to improve system performance by using multiple threads and speeding up your code.

By the end of the book, you will be capable of handling various data analysis techniques in Python and devising solutions for problem scenarios.

What You Will Learn

  • Set up reproducible data analysis
  • Clean and transform data
  • Apply advanced statistical analysis
  • Create attractive data visualizations
  • Web scrape and work with databases, Hadoop, and Spark
  • Analyze images and time series data
  • Mine text and analyze social networks
  • Use machine learning and evaluate the results
  • Take advantage of parallelism and concurrency

Learning the bash Shell, 2nd Edition

The first thing users of the UNIX or Linux operating systems come face to face with is the shell. "Shell" is the UNIX term for a user interface to the system—something that lets you communicate with the computer via the keyboard and the display. Shells are just...

Restricted Kalman Filtering: Theory, Methods, and Application (SpringerBriefs in Statistics)
Restricted Kalman Filtering: Theory, Methods, and Application (SpringerBriefs in Statistics)

In this book, I highlight the developments in Kalman filtering subject to general linear constraints. Essentially, the material to be presented is almost entirely based on the results and examples originally developed in Pizzinga et al. (2008a), Cerqueira et al. (2009), Pizzinga (2009, 2010), Souza et al. (2011), Pizzinga et al. (2011), and...

Engineering Chemistry
Engineering Chemistry

Engineers and scientists are required to master chemical principles because many of the problems they encounter involve chemical processes or the composition and properties of materials. This book is designed to present the fundamental concepts of chemistry as they relate to modern engineering applications. As an up-to-date reference it can...

Principles of Geometry (Cambridge Library Collection - Mathematics)
Principles of Geometry (Cambridge Library Collection - Mathematics)

Henry Frederick Baker (1866-1956) was a renowned British mathematician specialising in algebraic geometry. First published between 1922 and 1925, this six-volume work provides a detailed insight into the geometry which was developing at the time of publication. Volume 1 describes the foundations of projective geometry.
