  author={Stefan Behnel and Robert Bradshaw and Craig Citro and Lisandro Dalc{\'i}n and Dag Sverre Seljebotn and Kurt Smith},
  journal={Computing in Science & Engineering},
Cython is a Python language extension that allows explicit type declarations and is compiled directly to C. As such, it addresses Python's large overhead for numerical loops and the difficulty of efficiently using existing C and Fortran code, which Cython can interact with natively.
