There is a library called numpy in opencv package. I just wanted to know what is its use? Do we have any equivalent library in opencv java package? I don't know anything about python, just asked out of curiosity.

Numpy is the fundamental package for scientific computing with Python. It contains among other things:

  • a powerful N-dimensional array object
  • sophisticated (broadcasting) functions
  • tools for integrating C/C++ and Fortran code
  • useful linear algebra, Fourier transform, and random number capabilities
