How to Install Numpy on Windows?
Python NumPy is a general-purpose array processing package that provides tools for handling n-dimensional arrays. It provides various computing tools such as comprehensive mathematical functions, linear algebra routines. NumPy provides both the flexibility of Python and the speed of well-optimized compiled C code. Its easy-to-use syntax makes it highly accessible and productive for programmers from any background.
The only thing that you need for installing Numpy on Windows are:
Installing Numpy on Windows:
For Conda Users:
If you want the installation to be done through conda, you can use the below command:
conda install -c anaconda numpy
You will get a similar message once the installation is complete
Make sure you follow the best practices for installation using conda as:
- Use an environment for installation rather than in the base environment using the below command:
conda create -n my-env conda activate my-env
Note: If your preferred method of installation is conda-forge, use the below command:
conda config --env --add channels conda-forge
For PIP Users:
Users who prefer to use pip can use the below command to install NumPy:
pip install numpy
You will get a similar message once the installation is complete:
Now that we have installed Numpy successfully in our system, let’s take a look at few simple examples.
Example 1: Basic Numpy Array characters
Array is of type: No. of dimensions: 2 Shape of array: (2, 3) Size of array: 6 Array stores elements of type: int64
Example 2: Basic Numpy operations
Adding 1 to every element: [2 3 6 4] Subtracting 3 from each element: [-2 -1 2 0] Multiplying each element by 10: [10 20 50 30] Squaring each element: [ 1 4 25 9] Doubled each element of original array: [ 2 4 10 6] Original array: [[1 2 3] [3 4 5] [9 6 0]] Transpose of array: [[1 3 9] [2 4 6] [3 5 0]]
