Fix Python – How to calculate probability in a normal distribution given mean & standard deviation?

How to calculate probability in normal distribution given mean, std in Python? I can always explicitly code my own function according to the definition like the OP in this question did: Calculating Probability of a Random Variable in a Distribution in Python
Just wondering if there is a library function call will allow you to do this. In my imagin….

Fix Python – How can I perform two-dimensional interpolation using scipy?

This Q&A is intended as a canonical(-ish) concerning two-dimensional (and multi-dimensional) interpolation using scipy. There are often questions concerning the basic syntax of various multidimensional interpolation methods, I hope to set these straight too.

I have a set of scattered two-dimensional data points, and I would like to plot them as ….

Fix Python – Plotting a fast Fourier transform in Python

I have access to NumPy and SciPy and want to create a simple FFT of a data set. I have two lists, one that is y values and the other is timestamps for those y values.
What is the simplest way to feed these lists into a SciPy or NumPy method and plot the resulting FFT?
I have looked up examples, but they all rely on creating a set of fake data with….

Fix Python – Confusion between numpy, scipy, matplotlib and pylab

Numpy, scipy, matplotlib, and pylab are common terms among they who use python for scientific computation.
I just learn a bit about pylab, and I got confused.
Whenever I want to import numpy, I can always do:
import numpy as np

I just consider, that once I do
from pylab import *

the numpy will be imported as well (with np alias). So basically th….
