I am trying to entice my lab to transition from Matlab and R to Python. The main objection at this point seems to be that Python's analytical libraries are not sufficiently well documented. Given how prolific Python is, I suspect that sufficiently detailed documentation exists and we simply cannot find it.
Recently, I needed to upsample a signal (1D vector) and found a Python function called
resample. In contrast to Matlab and R, pandas documentation doesn't tell me what kind of interpolation resample uses (linear, cubic splines, pchip?).
Is there any place where I could find such information about this and other libraries, preferably with equations or references to papers? I understand that I could analyze source code but this isn't most time efficient. If you know R, I am basically looking for a Python equivalent of CRAN (PDF warning).
