Package Description

scikit-cuda provides Python interfaces to many of the functions in the CUDA device/runtime, CUBLAS, CUFFT, and CUSOLVER libraries distributed as part of NVIDIA's CUDA Programming Toolkit, as well as interfaces to select functions in the CULA Dense Toolkit. Both low-level wrapper functions similar to their C counterparts and high-level functions comparable to those in NumPy and Scipy are provided.

0.5.3 Latest Version Downloads Support the project Open Hub


Package documentation is available at Many of the high-level functions have examples in their docstrings. More illustrations of how to use both the wrappers and high-level functions can be found in the demos/ and tests/ subdirectories.


The latest source code can be obtained from lebedov/scikit-cuda.

When submitting bug reports or questions via the issue tracker, please include the following information:
