This recipe helps you compute covariance in pandas

Compute the pairwise covariance among the series of a DataFrame can be carried out by cov() function. For similar series, it becomes basically variance.

So this recipe is a short example on How to compute covariance in pandas. Let's get started.

```
import pandas as pd
```

Let's pause and look at these imports. Pandas is generally used for performing mathematical operation and preferably over arrays.

```
df = pd.DataFrame({"A":[0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 9],
"B":[11, 5, 8, 6, 7, 8],
"C":[2, 5, 10, 11, 9, 8]})
```

Here we have setup a random dataset with some random values in it.

```
print(df.cov())
```

Here we are applied cov() to find out the covariance among the series.

Once we run the above code snippet, we will see:

Scroll down to the ipython file to look at the results.

We can see the how the covarianve being calculated among all the 3 series.
