  • SymPy

    A computer algebra system written in pure Python

    Project mention: Vectorization: Introduction | | 2023-06-01 :

    > Array programming, a style of computer programming where operations are applied to whole arrays instead of individual elements

    > Automatic vectorization, a compiler optimization that transforms loops to vector operations

    > Image tracing, the creation of vector from raster graphics

    > Word embedding, mapping words to vectors, in natural language processing

    > Vectorization (mathematics), a linear transformation which converts a matrix into a column vector

    Vector (disambiguation)

    > Vector (mathematics and physics):

    > Row and column vectors, single row or column matrices

    > Vector space

    > Vector field, a vector for each point

    And then there are a number of CS usages of the word vector for 1D arrays.

    Compute kernel:

    GPGPU > Vectorization, Stream Processing > Compute kernels:

    sympy.utilities.lambdify.lambdify() :

    > """Convert a SymPy expression into a function that allows for fast numeric evaluation [with the CPython math module, mpmath, NumPy, SciPy, CuPy, JAX, TensorFlow, SymPt, numexpr,]

    Project mention: My partner’s son really wants to make a sugar rocket- what to discuss with him | /r/rocketry | 2023-01-08

    keep away from PVC tubes, cause those shatter rather than peel like with cardboard or aluminium tubes. and unlike aluminium, it doesn't turn up in x-rays. don't follow online video tutorials, cause they're often simplified massively and don't explain the complexities. anyways, here's an online video tutorial (ironic) series by someone who's built much more complicated motors than pvc tubes packed with sugar. He does this at MIT, and also co-made OpenMotor, a software to get estimated chamber pressure, KN (a value proportional to the chamber pressure and surface area of burning, can't remember the exact formula for it), and thrust, plotted on a graph relative to time. There's also this site, which is basically the archive of someone who's been building amateur motors for decades, and it contains hundreds of separate pages, most of which contain extremely useful information, especially the theory section. I'm currently designing my own motor using sugar too, and these have all been a massive help.
