Documentation

pysecs

pysecs is an open source library for calculating Spherical Elementary Current Systems (SECS).

Features

  • Based upon the scikit-learn framework with fit() and predict() methods.
  • The only dependency is NumPy. It is built using fast broadcasting techniques to provide highly scalable calculations.

Examples
