scipy is mostly written with numpy as its core, so in general you
should be able to use numpy objects with scipy objects (not sure, but
I guess most scipy objects will have a numpy object as their base).
The best is simply to try it out! In this particular case, x can be a
numpy array; y is created in the process, so will be the type of
object most suited to the outcome of the equation (ie, you cannot
state beforehand if it's a numpy or scipy object); in this case,
again a numpy array.
See also the scipy tutorial on the scipy.org website, where numpy and
scipy objects are freely mixed.
