I am a scientific software engineer and am fortunate enough to spend most of my time using Python, matplotlib, numpy, scipy etc. for scientific R&D for both my own personal interest and for the benefit of a large scientific community.

I am the original author of Cartopy, am a core developer on matplotlib and iris, and to a lesser extent have made contributions to core python, numpy, scipy, shapely & others.

comment Does anyone recognize this function?
Please accept my apologies if I am incorrect, but did your logic just go: f(2) = f(1+1) = f(1)*f(1) = (+1)^1 * f(1) = k? But that logic isn't correct. Using this logic, g(0) = g(1 + -1) = g(1) * g(-1), but if g(x) = x^2 then we get a contradiction (g(0) would be 0, g(1) * g(-1) = 1)
