PyConAU 2010: Fast Engineering Computation in with Boost::Python and Numarray

Description

Fast Engineering Computation in with Boost::Python and Numarray

Presented by Filip Zalio (NEC Australia)

In the 3G Mobile Research and Development Division in NEC Australia (www.nec.com.au) we have been using Python based environment since 2005. We run digital signal processing simulations of 3G and 4G mobile phone radio links. Our simulations are CPU-bound, where efficient and fast interfacing between C++ and Python is one of the keys to the growing success of Python within NEC. In this short presentation, we describe our current framework which achieves the fast processing.
