linop 0.8.2

A pythonic abstraction for linear mathematical operators

Package Documentation

This project provides a standalone set of classes to abstract the creation and management of linear operators, to be used as a common basis for the development of advanced mathematical frameworks.

The code base was originally forked from the pykrylov project developed by Dominique Orban. This project has added missing features such as Python 3 support, a comprehensive test suite, bug fixes and feature enhancements.


  • Python 2 (>=2.6) or 3 (>=3.2)
  • NumPy


Using pip / easy_install (recommended):

pip install linop

From the cloned repository or unpacked source distribution:

python install


The package documentation can be found here. The documentation can be built using Sphinx. Within the root location of the source directory, run:

python build_sphinx

The html documentation will be available in doc/build/html.


See the CHANGES.txt file.
