Scikit-HEP project - welcome!

Scikit-HEP GitHub Org Gitter badge

The Scikit-HEP project is a community-driven and community-oriented project with the aim of providing Particle Physics at large with an ecosystem for data analysis in Python. Read more β†’

Basics:

Manipulate arrays of complex data structures as easily as Numpy.

Units and constants in the HEP system of units.

Data manipulation and interoperability:

Easy conversions between different styles of expressions.

Interface between ROOT and NumPy.

Module for conveniently loading/saving ROOT files as pandas DataFrames.

Minimalist ROOT I/O in pure Python and Numpy.

Pythonic behaviours for non-I/O related ROOT classes.

Histogramming:

Convert between histogram representations

Python bindings for the C++14 Boost::Histogram library.

Hist is a analyst friendly front-end for boost-histogram, designed for Python 3.6+.

Versatile, high-performance histogram toolkit for Numpy.

Interface to HEP libraries:

Interface between Pythia and NumPy.

Next generation Python bindings for HepMC3.

Interface between FastJet and NumPy.

Lightweight Python interface to read Les Houches Event (LHE) files.

Machine Learning:

Collection of tools and algorithms to enable conversion of HEP ML to mass usage model.

Visualization:

Plotting and styling helpers for matplotlib.

View Vega/Vega-Lite plots in your web browser from local or remote Python processes.

Miscellaneous:

A collection of helpers for building binary Python wheels on Azure. Useful for reference, but please use cibuildwheel for new projects.

Toolset of interfaces and tools for Particle Physics. To become a metapackage.

Common package to provide example files (e.g., ROOT) for testing and developing packages against.

In some cases, the packages provide a bridge between different technologies and/or popular packages from the Python scientific software stack.
