Timing the Same Algorithm in R, Python, and C++
While developing the RcppDynProg R package I took a little extra time to port the core algorithm from C++ to both R and Python. This means I can time the exact same algorithm implemented nearly identically in each of these three languages. So I can extract some comparative “apples to apples” timings. Please read... Read more
xtensor features offer alternative to NumPy in C++
Python, and especially NumPy, has been a cornerstone in scientific computing for quite a while now. Initially set out to reimplement the most valuable features of Matlab, NumPy might already be more popular in a couple of science fields. While NumPy is quite fast, it remains... Read more
