exception scipy.linalg.LinAlgError[source]

Generic Python-exception-derived object raised by linalg functions.

General purpose exception class, derived from Python’s exception.Exception class, programmatically raised in linalg functions when a Linear Algebra-related condition would prevent further correct execution of the function.
