Python Example – Write a NumPy program to compute the determinant of an array

(Python Example for Beginners)


Write a NumPy program to compute the determinant of an array.

From Wikipedia: In linear algebra, the determinant is a value that can be computed from the elements of a square matrix. The determinant of a matrix A is denoted det(A), det A, or |A|. Geometrically, it can be viewed as the scaling factor of the linear transformation described by the matrix.


Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import numpy as np

a = np.array([[1,2],[3,4]])
print("Original array:")

result =  np.linalg.det(a)
print("Determinant of the said array:")

Sample Output:

Original array:
[[1 2]
 [3 4]]
Determinant of the said array:

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
