If you’re among the many hobbyists and designers who came to electronics through Arduino and Raspberry Pi, this cookbook will help you learn and apply the basics of electrical engineering without the need for an EE degree. Through a series of practical recipes, you’ll learn how to solve specific problems while diving into as much or as little theory as you’re comfortable with. Author Simon Monk (Raspberry Pi Cookbook) breaks down this complex subject into several topics, from using the right transistor to building and testing projects and prototypes. With this book, you can quickly search electronics topics and go straight to the recipe you need. It also serves as an ideal reference for experienced electronics makers. This cookbook includes: Theoretical concepts such as Ohm’s law and the relationship between power, voltage, and current The fundamental use of resistors, capacitors and inductors, diodes, transistors and integrated circuits, and switches and relays Recipes on power, sensors and motors, integrated circuits, and radio frequency for designing electronic circuits and devices Advice on using Arduino and Raspberry Pi in electronics projects How to build and use tools, including multimeters, oscilloscopes, simulations software, and unsoldered prototypes

Tackle the most sophisticated problems associated with scientific computing and data manipulation using SciPy Key Features Covers a wide range of data science tasks using SciPy, NumPy, pandas, and matplotlib Effective recipes on advanced scientific computations, statistics, data wrangling, data visualization, and more A must-have book if you're looking to solve your data-related problems using SciPy, on-the-go Book Description With the SciPy Stack, you get the power to effectively process, manipulate, and visualize your data using the popular Python language. Utilizing SciPy correctly can sometimes be a very tricky proposition. This book provides the right techniques so you can use SciPy to perform different data science tasks with ease. This book includes hands-on recipes for using the different components of the SciPy Stack such as NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib, and pandas, among others. You will use these libraries to solve real-world problems in linear algebra, numerical analysis, data visualization, and much more. The recipes included in the book will ensure you get a practical understanding not only of how a particular feature in SciPy Stack works, but also of its application to real-world problems. The independent nature of the recipes also ensure that you can pick up any one and learn about a particular feature of SciPy without reading through the other recipes, thus making the book a very handy and useful guide. What you will learn Get a solid foundation in scientific computing using Python Master common tasks related to SciPy and associated libraries such as NumPy, pandas, and matplotlib Perform mathematical operations such as linear algebra and work with the statistical and probability functions in SciPy Master advanced computing such as Discrete Fourier Transform and K-means with the SciPy Stack Implement data wrangling tasks efficiently using pandas Visualize your data through various graphs and charts using matplotlib Who this book is for Python developers, aspiring data scientists, and analysts who want to get started with scientific computing using Python will find this book an indispensable resource. If you want to learn how to manipulate and visualize your data using the SciPy Stack, this book will also help you. A basic understanding of Python programming is all you need to get started.
