To use SciPy, you typically need to install it as a separate package alongside NumPy. You can do this using a package manager like pip:

bashCopy codepip install scipy

Once installed, you can import and use SciPy modules in your Python code as needed.

Here’s an example of importing and using SciPy for numerical integration:

pythonCopy codeimport scipy.integrate as spi

# Define a function to be integrated
def f(x):
    return x**2

# Perform numerical integration
result, error = spi.quad(f, 0, 1)
print("Result:", result)
print("Error:", error)

This example demonstrates the use of the quad function from SciPy to perform a numerical integration of a simple function.
