Optimising UTCI Algorithm in Python

The UTCI algorithm (in Python) is shown below: and is equivalent to the polynomial for calculating UTCI. In a previous post I profiled the running time of various implementations, and found the the algorithm above was massively faster than the current implementation, but significantly slower than simply evaluating the polynomial. However, in the interests of … Continue reading
