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.

In this data science project, you will work with German credit dataset using classification techniques like Decision Tree, Neural Networks etc to classify loan applications using R.

There are different time series forecasting methods to forecast stock price, demand etc. In this machine learning project, you will learn to determine which forecasting method to be used when and how to apply with time series forecasting example.
