The library includes
- mathematical tools like
- support for parallel computing
- and several input/output interfaces, notably with
ScientificPython is released under the CeCILL.
The main developer and maintainer of ScientificPython is Konrad Hinsen of Orléans University who uses it as a building block for his own research code, in particular the molecular modeling toolkit MMTK and the software nMoldyn that uses molecular dynamics trajectories to predict neutron scattering spectra.  Outside this particular application context, most users are likely to prefer the package SciPy, which has seen a more dynamic evolution in the decade 2000-2010, involving several active developers.
