Bases: zfit.models.polynomials.RecursivePolynomial

Linear combination of Chebyshev (first kind) polynomials of order len(coeffs), coeffs are scaling factors.

The 0th coefficient is set to 1 by default but can be explicitly set with coeff0. Since the PDF normalization removes a degree of freedom, the 0th coefficient is redundant and leads to an arbitrary overall scaling of all parameters.

Notice that this is already a sum of polynomials and the coeffs are simply scaling the individual orders of the polynomials.

The recursive definition of _a single order_ of the polynomial is

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}T_{n+1}(x) = 2 x T_{n}(x) - T_{n-1}(x)\\with T_{0} = 1 T_{1} = x\end{aligned}\end{align} \]

Notice that \(T_1\) is x as opposed to 2x in Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind.

Parameters
  • obs – The default space the PDF is defined in.

  • apply_scaling (bool) – Rescale the data so that the actual limits represent (-1, 1).

Bases: zfit.models.polynomials.RecursivePolynomial

Linear combination of Legendre polynomials of order len(coeffs), the coeffs are overall scaling factors.

The 0th coefficient is set to 1 by default but can be explicitly set with coeff0. Since the PDF normalization removes a degree of freedom, the 0th coefficient is redundant and leads to an arbitrary overall scaling of all parameters.

Notice that this is already a sum of polynomials and the coeffs are simply scaling the individual orders of the polynomials.

The recursive definition of _a single order_ of the polynomial is

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}(n+1) P_{n+1}(x) = (2n + 1) x P_{n}(x) - n P_{n-1}(x)\\with P_0 = 1 P_1 = x\end{aligned}\end{align} \]

Bases: zfit.models.polynomials.RecursivePolynomial

Linear combination of Hermite polynomials (for physics) of order len(coeffs), with coeffs as scaling factors.

The 0th coefficient is set to 1 by default but can be explicitly set with coeff0. Since the PDF normalization removes a degree of freedom, the 0th coefficient is redundant and leads to an arbitrary overall scaling of all parameters.

Notice that this is already a sum of polynomials and the coeffs are simply scaling the individual orders of the polynomials.

The recursive definition of _a single order_ of the polynomial is

\[H_{n+1}(x) = 2x H_{n}(x) - 2n H_{n-1}(x)\]

with P_0 = 1 P_1 = 2x

Force numerical partial integration of the function over the limits and evaluate it at x.

Dimension of limits and x have to add up to the full dimension and be therefore equal to the dimensions of norm_range (if not False)

Parameters
  • x (numerical) – The value at which the partially integrated function will be evaluated

  • limits (tuple, Space) – the limits to integrate over. Can contain only some axes

  • norm_range (tuple, Space, False) – the limits to normalize over. Has to have all axes

  • name (str) –

Returns

the value of the partially integrated function evaluated at x.

Return type

Tensor

pdf(**kwargs)
property pdfs_extended
classmethod register_additional_repr(**kwargs)

Register an additional attribute to add to the repr.

Parameters
  • keyword argument. The value has to be gettable from the instance (has to be an (any) –

  • or callable method of self. (attribute) –

classmethod register_analytic_integral(func: Callable, limits: Union[Tuple[Tuple[float, ...]], Tuple[float, ...], bool] = None, priority: Union[int, float] = 50, *, supports_norm_range: bool = False, supports_multiple_limits: bool = False) → None

Register an analytic integral with the class.

Parameters
  • func (callable) –

    A function that calculates the (partial) integral over the axes limits. The signature has to be the following:

    • x (ZfitData, None): the data for the remaining axes in a partial

      integral. If it is not a partial integral, this will be None.

    • limits (Space): the limits to integrate over.

    • norm_range (Space, None): Normalization range of the integral.

      If not supports_supports_norm_range, this will be None.

    • params (Dict[param_name, zfit.Parameters]): The parameters of the model.

    • model (ZfitModel):The model that is being integrated.

  • () (limits) – |limits_arg_descr|

  • priority (int) – Priority of the function. If multiple functions cover the same space, the one with the highest priority will be used.

  • supports_multiple_limits (bool) – If True, the limits given to the integration function can have multiple limits. If False, only simple limits will pass through and multiple limits will be auto-handled.

  • supports_norm_range (bool) – If True, norm_range argument to the function may not be None. If False, norm_range will always be None and care is taken of the normalization automatically.

register_cacher(cacher: Union[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitCachable, Iterable[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitCachable]])

Register a cacher that caches values produces by this instance; a dependent.

Parameters

() (cacher) –

classmethod register_inverse_analytic_integral(func: Callable) → None

Register an inverse analytical integral, the inverse (unnormalized) cdf.

Parameters

() (func) –

reset_cache(reseter: zfit.util.cache.ZfitCachable)
reset_cache_self()

Clear the cache of self and all dependent cachers.

sample(n: Union[int, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor, str] = None, limits: Union[Tuple[Tuple[float, ...]], Tuple[float, ...], bool] = None, name: str = 'sample') → zfit.core.data.SampleData

Sample n points within limits from the model.

If limits is not specified, space is used (if the space contains limits). If n is None and the model is an extended pdf, ‘extended’ is used by default.

Parameters
  • n (int, tf.Tensor, str) –

    The number of samples to be generated. Can be a Tensor that will be or a valid string. Currently implemented:

    • ’extended’: samples poisson(yield) from each pdf that is extended.

  • limits (tuple, Space) – In which region to sample in

  • name (str) –

Returns

SampleData(n_obs, n_samples)

Raises
  • NotExtendedPDFError – if ‘extended’ is (implicitly by default or explicitly) chosen as an option for n but the pdf itself is not extended.

  • ValueError – if n is an invalid string option.

  • InvalidArgumentError – if n is not specified and pdf is not extended.

set_norm_range(norm_range: Union[Tuple[Tuple[Tuple[float, ...]]], Tuple[float, float], bool])

Set the normalization range (temporarily if used with contextmanager).

Parameters

norm_range (tuple, Space) –

property space

Return the Space object that defines the dimensionality of the object.

unnormalized_pdf(x: Union[float, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor], component_norm_range: Union[Tuple[Tuple[Tuple[float, ...]]], Tuple[float, float], bool] = None, name: str = 'unnormalized_pdf') → Union[float, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]

PDF “unnormalized”. Use functions for unnormalized pdfs. this is only for performance in special cases.

Parameters
  • x (numerical) – The value, have to be convertible to a Tensor

  • component_norm_range (Space) – The normalization range for the components. Needed for

  • composition (certain) – pdfs.

  • name (str) –

Returns

1-dimensional tf.Tensor containing the unnormalized pdf.

Return type

tf.Tensor

update_integration_options(draws_per_dim=None, mc_sampler=None)

Set the integration options.

Parameters
