Lou,
as for your confusion about where "acos()" came from:
You are right that if you do:
from math import *
and
from numpy import *
numpy will override some of the math functions, but not "acos()",
because numpy has "arccos()" function instead.
And all of this is a good reminder to not use "import *"
import numpy as np
is the most common way to import numpy these days -- yes it reasults in
a bit of extra typing, but "namespaces are one honking great idea":
