Numpy Sum And Prod

## Description

Similar to Python lists, NumPy has `sum()` and `prod` commands for `ndarray` objects.

## Sage Cell

#### Code

```
import numpy as np
a = np.array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])
print a.sum()
print a.prod()
```

## Options

#### Operating on Axes

By setting the `axis` parameter, we can operate on specific parts of the array. For a 2-dimensional array, setting `axis` to 0 adds or multiplies columns, and setting `axis` to 1 adds or multiplies rows.

#### Code

```
import numpy as np
a = np.array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])
print a.sum(axis=0)
print a.sum(axis=1)
```
