4. arraytools
— A collection of numerical utilities.¶
This module contains a large collection of numerical utilities. Many of them are related to processing arrays. Some are similar to existing NumPy functions but offer some extended functionality.
Note
While these functions were historically developed for pyFormex, this module only depends on numpy and can be used outside of pyFormex without changes.

Examples
>>> checkInt(1) 1 >>> checkInt(1,min=0,max=1) 1 >>> checkInt('2',min=0) 2

arraytools.
checkFloat
(value, min=None, max=None)[source]¶ Check that a value is a float in the range min..max.
Parameters:  value (floatlike) – The value to check
 min (floatlike, optional) – If provided, minimal value to be accepted.

arraytools.
checkBroadcast
(shape1, shape2)[source]¶ Check that two array shapes are broadcast compatible.
In many numerical operations, NumPy will automatically broadcast arrays of different shapes to a single shape, if they have broadcast compatible shapes. Two array shapes are broadcast compatible if, in all the last dimensions that exist in both arrays, either the shape of both arrays has the same length, or one of the shapes has a length 1.
Parameters:  shape1 (tuple of ints) – Shape of first array
 shape2 (tuple of ints) – Shape of second array
Returns: tuple of ints – The broadcasted shape of the arrays.
Raises: ValueError: Shapes are not broadcast compatible – If the two shapes can not be broadcast to a single one.
Examples
>>> checkBroadcast((8,1,6,1),(7,1,5)) (8, 7, 6, 5) >>> checkBroadcast((5,4),(1,)) (5, 4) >>> checkBroadcast((5,4),(4,)) (5, 4) >>> checkBroadcast((15,3,5),(15,1,5)) (15, 3, 5) >>> checkBroadcast((15,3,5),(3,5)) (15, 3, 5) >>> checkBroadcast((15,3,5),(3,1)) (15, 3, 5) >>> checkBroadcast((7,1,5),(8,1,6,1)) (8, 7, 6, 5)

arraytools.
checkArray
(a, shape=None, kind=None, allow=None, size=None, ndim=None, bcast=None, subok=False, addaxis=False)[source]¶ Check that an array a has the correct shape, type and/or size.
Parameters:  a (array_like) – An instance of a numpy.ndarray or a subclass thereof, or anything that can be converted into a numpy array.
 shape (tuple of ints, optional) – If provided, the shape of the array should match this value along each axis for which a nonzero value is specified. The length of the shape tuple should also match (unless addaxis=True is provided, see below).
 kind (dtype.kind character code, optional) – If provided, the array’s dtype.kind should match this value,
or one of the values in
allow
, if provided.  allow (string of dtype.kind character codes, optional) – If provided, and
kind
is also specified, any of the specified array types will also be accepted if it is convertible to the specifiedkind
. See also Notes below.  size (int, optional) – If provided, the total array size should match this value.
 ndim (int, optional) – If provided the input array should have exactly
ndim
dimensions (unless addaxis=True is provided, see below).  bcast (tuple of ints, optional) – If provided, the array’s shape should be broadcast comaptible with the specified shape.
 subok (bool, optional) – If True, the returned array is of the same class as the input array
a
, if possible. If False (default), the returned array is always of the base type numpy.ndarray.  addaxis (bool, optional) – If False (default), and either ndim or shape are specified, the input array should have precisely the number of dimensions specified by ndim or the length of shape. If True, an input array with less dimensions will automatically be transformed by adding length 1 axes at the start of the shape tuple until the correct dimension is reached.
Returns: array – The checked_array is equivalent to the input data. It has the same contents and shape. It also has the same type, unless
kind
is is provided, in which case the result is converted to this type. Ifsubok=True
was provided, the returned array will be of the same array subclass as the inputa
, if possible.Raises: ValueError: invalid array – The input data failed for one of more of the tests requested by the provided parameters.
Notes
Currently, the only allowed conversion from an
allow
type tokind
type, is to ‘f’. Thus specifiyingkind='f', allow='i'
will accept integer input but return float32 output.See also
Examples
>>> checkArray([1,2]) array([1, 2]) >>> checkArray([1,2],shape=(2,)) array([1, 2]) >>> checkArray([[1,2],[3,4]],shape=(2,1)) array([[1, 2], [3, 4]]) >>> checkArray([1,2],kind='i') array([1, 2]) >>> checkArray([1,2],kind='f',allow='i') array([ 1., 2.]) >>> checkArray([1,2],size=2) array([1, 2]) >>> checkArray([1,2],ndim=1) array([1, 2]) >>> checkArray([[1,2],[3,4]],bcast=(3,1,2)) array([[1, 2], [3, 4]]) >>> checkArray([[1,2],[3,4]],ndim=3,addaxis=True) array([[[1, 2], [3, 4]]]) >>> checkArray([[1,2],[3,4]],shape=(1,1,2),addaxis=True) array([[[1, 2], [3, 4]]])

arraytools.

(a, kind=None, allow=None, size=None)[source]¶ Check and force an array to be 1D.
This is equivalent to calling
checkArray()
without theshape
andndim
parameters, and then turning the result into a 1D array.:param See
checkArray()
.:Returns: 1D array – The checked_array holds the same data as the input, but the shape is rveled to 1D. It also has the same type, unless kind
is is provided, in which case the result is converted to this type.Examples
>>> checkArray1D([[1,2],[3,4]],size=4) array([1, 2, 3, 4])

arraytools.
checkUniqueNumbers
(nrs, nmin=0, nmax=None)[source]¶ Check that an array contains a set of unique integers in a given range.
This functions tests that all integer numbers in the array are within the range math:nmin <= i < nmax. Default range is [0,unlimited].
Parameters:  nrs (array_like, int) – Input array with integers to check against provided limits.
 nmin (int or None, optional) – If not None, no value in
a
should be lower than this.  nmax () –
 nmax – If provided, no value in
a
should be higher than this.
Returns: 1D int array – Containing the sorted unique numbers from the input.
Raises: ValueError
– If the numbers are not unique or some input value surpasses one of the specified limmits.Examples

Parameters:  a (array_like) – The array in which to extend n axis.
 add (int) – The length over which the specified axis should grow. If add<=0, the array is returned unchanged.
 axis (int) – Position of the target axis in the array. Default is last (1).
 fill (int or float) – Value to set the new elements along the grown axis to.
Returns: array – Same type and data as a, but length of specified axis has been increased with a value add and the new elements are filled with the value fill.
Raises: ValueError: – If the specified axis exceeds the array dimensions.
Examples
>>> growAxis([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]],2) array([[1, 2, 3, 0, 0], [4, 5, 6, 0, 0]]) >>> growAxis([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]],1,axis=0,fill=3) array([[ 1, 2, 3], [ 4, 5, 6], [3, 3, 3]]) >>> growAxis([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]],1) array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])

arraytools.
reorderAxis
(a, order, axis=1)[source]¶ Reorder the planes of an array along the specified axis.
Parameters:  a (array_like) – The array in which to reorder the elements.
 order (int array_like  str) –
Specifies how to reorder the elements. It can be an integer index which should be a permutation of arange(a.shape[axis]). Each value in the index specified the old index of the elements that should be placed at its position. This is equivalent to a.take(order,axis).
order can also be one of the following predefined sting values, resulting in the corresponding renumbering scheme being generated:
 ’reverse’: the elements along axis are placed in reverse order
 ’random’: the elements along axis are placed in random order
 axis (int) – The axis of the array along which the elements are to be reordered. Default is last (1).
Returns: array – Same type and data as a, but the element planes are along axis have been reordered.
Examples
>>> reorderAxis([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]], [2,0,1]) array([[3, 1, 2], [6, 4, 5]])

arraytools.
reverseAxis
(a, axis=1)[source]¶ Reverse the order of the elements along an axis.
Parameters:  a (array_like) – The array in which to reorder the elements.
 axis (int) – The axis of the array along which the elements are to be reordered. Default is last (1).
Returns: array – Same type and data as a, but the elements along axis are now in reversed order.
Note
This function is especially useful if axis has a computed value. If the axis is known in advance, it is more efficient to use an indexing operation. Thus reverseAxis(A,1) is equivalent to A[…,::1].
Examples
>>> A = np.array([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]]) >>> reverseAxis(A) array([[3, 2, 1], [6, 5, 4]]) >>> A[...,::1] array([[3, 2, 1], [6, 5, 4]])

Returns: array – An array with interleaved rows from a and b. The array has the datatype of a and its first axis has the combined length of that of a and b.
Examples
>>> interleave(np.arange(4), 10*np.arange(3)) array([ 0, 0, 1, 10, 2, 20, 3]) >>> a = np.arange(8).reshape(2,4) >>> print(interleave(a,10*a)) [[ 0 1 2 3] [ 0 10 20 30] [ 4 5 6 7] [40 50 60 70]]

arraytools.
array2str
(a)[source]¶ String representation of an array.
This creates a string representation of an array. It is visually equivalent with numpy.ndarray.__repr__ without the dtype, except for ‘uint.’ types.
Note
This function can be used to set the default string representation of numpy arrays, using the following:
import numpy as np np.set_string_function(array2str)
To reset it to the default, do:
np.set_string_function(None)
Because this reference manual was created with the default numpy routine replaced with ours, you will never see the dtype, except for uint types. See also the examples below.
Parameters: a (array) – Any numpy.ndarray
object.Returns:  The string representation of the array as created by its
__repr__
method, except that thedtype
is left away.
Examples
>>> a = np.arange(5).astype(np.int8) >>> print(array2str(a)) array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4]) >>> a array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4])
Reset the numpy string function to its default. >>> np.set_string_function(None) >>> a array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4], dtype=int8)
Change back to ours. >>> np.set_string_function(array2str) >>> a array([0, 1, 2, 3, 4])

arraytools.

cardanAngles
(R, angle_spec=0.017453292519943295)[source]¶ Compute cardan angles from rotation matrix
Computes the angles over which to rotate subsequently around the 0axis, the 1axis and the 2axis to obtain the rotation corresponding to the given rotation matrix.
Parameters:  R ((3,3) float array_like) – Rotation matrix for post multiplication (see Notes)
 angle_spec (
DEG
,RAD
or float, nonzero.) – Divisor applied to the resulting angles before returning. The default divisor DEG makes the angles be returned in degrees. Use RAD to get angles in radians.
Returns: (rx,ry,rz) (tuple of floats) – The three rotation angles around that when applied subsequently around the global 0, 1 and 2 axes, yield the same rotation as the input. The default angle_spec=DEG returns the angles in degrees.
Notes
The returned angles are but one of many ways to obtain a given rotation by three subsequent rotations around frame axes. Look on the web for ‘Euler angles’ to get comprehensive information. Different sets of angles can be obtained depending on the sequence of rotation axes used, and whether fixed axes (extrinsic) or rotated axes (intrinsic) are used in subsequent rotations. The here obtained ‘cardan’ angles are commonly denoted as a zy’x’’ system with intrinsic angles or xyz with extrinsic angles. It is the latter angles that are returned.
Because pyFormex stores rotation matrices as postmultiplication matrices (to be applied on rowvectors), the combined rotation around first the 0axis, then the 1axis and finally the 2axis, is found as the matrix product Rx.Ry.Rz. (Traditionally, vectors were often written as column matrices, and rotation matrices were premultiplication matrices, so the subsequent rotation matrices would have to be multiplied in reverse order.)
Even if one chooses a single frame system for the subsequent rotations, the resulting angles are not unique. There are infinitely many sets of angles that will result in the same rotation matrix. The implementation here results in angles rx and rz in the range [pi,pi], while the angle ry will be in [pi/2,pi/2]. Even then, there remain infinite solutions in the case where the elements R[0,2] == R[2,0] equal +1 or 1 (ry = +pi/2 or pi/2). The result will then be the solution with rx==0.
Examples
>>> print("%8.2f "*3 % cardanAngles(rotationMatrix3(60,45,30))) 60.00 45.00 30.00 >>> print("%8.2f "*3 % cardanAngles(rotationMatrix3(0,90,77))) 0.00 90.00 77.00 >>> print("%8.2f "*3 % cardanAngles(rotationMatrix3(0,90,30))) 0.00 90.00 30.00

>>> print("%8.2f "*3 % cardanAngles(rotationMatrix3(20,90,30))) 0.00 90.00 50.00

Notes
The rows of the rotation matrix represent the unit vectors of the resulting coordinate system. The coodinates in the rotated axes of any point are obtained by the reverse transformation, i.e. multiplying the point with the transpose of the rotation matrix.

(a, u)[source]¶ Compute the value of a polynom using Horner’s rule.
Parameters:  a (float array_like (n+1,nd)) –
nd
dimensional coefficients of a polynom of degreen
in a scalar variableu
. The coefficients are in order of increasing degree.  u (float array_like (nu)) – Parametric values where the polynom is to be evaluated.
Returns: float array(nu,nd) – The nddimensional values of the polynom at the specified nu parameter values.

solveMany
(A, B)[source]¶ Solve many systems of linear equations.
Parameters:  A (float array_like (nsys,ndof,ndof)) – Coefficient matrices for nsys systems of ndof linear equations in ndof unknowns.
 B (float array_like (nsys,ndof,nrhs)) – Right hand sides for the nsys systems of linear equations in ndof unkn owns. Each of the nsys systems is solved simultaneously for nrhs right hand sides.
Returns: X (float array (nsys,ndof,nrhs)) – The set of values X(nsys,ndof,nrhs) that solve the systems of linear equations A @ X = B, where @ is the Python matrix multiplication operator. Thus for each set of submatrices A[i], B[i], X[i], the normal matrix multiplication holds: A[i] . X[i] = B[i].
Notes
For values of ndof >= 4, a general linear system soultion method is used. For values 1, 2 or 3 however, a direct solution method is used which is much faster.
Examples
This example creates random systems and random values for the variables, then computes the right hand sides, and solves the equations. Finally the found solution is compared with the original values of the unknowns.
>>> def solveRandom(nsys, ndof, nrhs): ... A = np.random.rand(nsys, ndof, ndof) ... X = np.random.rand(nsys, ndof, nrhs) ... B = np.stack([np.dot(a,x) for a,x in zip(A,X)]) ... Y = solveMany(A,B) ... return np.allclose(X,Y,atol=1.e4) >>> nsys, nrhs = 10, 5 >>> print([solveRandom(nsys,ndof,nrhs) for ndof in [1,2,3,4]]) [True, True, True, True]

cubicEquation
(a, b, c, d)[source]¶ Solve a cubiq equation using a direct method.
Given a polynomial equation of the third degree with real coefficients:
a*x**3 + b*x**2 + c*x + d = 0
Such an equation (with a nonzero) always has exactly three roots, with some possibly being complex, or identical. This function computes all three roots of the equation and returns full information about their nature, multiplicity and sorting order. It uses scaling of the variables to enhance the accuracy.
Parameters: Returns: r1 (float) – First real root of the cubiq equation
r2 (float) – Second real root of the cubiq equation or real part of the complex conjugate second and third root.
r3 (float) – Third real root of the cubiq equation or imaginary part of the complex conjugate second and third root.
kind (int) – A value specifying the nature and ordering of the roots:
kind roots 0 three real roots r1 < r2 < r3 1 three real roots r1 < r2 = r3 2 three real roots r1 = r2 < r3 3 three real roots r1 = r2 = r3 4 one real root r1 and two complex conjugate roots with real part r2 and imaginary part r3; the complex roots are thus: r2+i*r3 en r2i*r3, where i=sqrt(1).
Raises: ValueError: – If the coefficient a==0 and the equation reduces to a second degree.
Examples
>>> cubicEquation(1.,6.,11.,6.) (array([ 1., 2., 3.]), 0) >>> cubicEquation(1.,2.,1.,0.) (array([0., 1., 1.]), 1) >>> cubicEquation(1.,5.,8.,4.) (array([ 1., 2., 2.]), 1) >>> cubicEquation(1.,4.,5.,2.) (array([ 1., 1., 2.]), 2) >>> cubicEquation(1.,3.,3.,1.) (array([ 1., 1., 1.]), 3) >>> cubicEquation(1.,1.,1.,1.)

Given a onedimensional integer array with only nonnegative values, and nval being the number of different values in it, and you want to replace its elements with values in the range 0..nval, such that identical numbers are always replaced with the same number and the new values at their first occurrence form an increasing sequence 0..nval. This function will give you the old numbers corresponding with each position 0..nval.
Parameters: index (1dim int array_like) – Array with nonnegative integer values. Returns: int array – A 1dim int array with length equal to nval, where nval is the number of different values in index. The elements are the original values corresponding to the new values 0..nval. See also

arraytools.
inverseUniqueIndex
(index)[source]¶ Inverse an index.
Given a 1D integer array with unique nonnegative values, and max being the highest value in it, this function returns the position in the array of the values 0..max. Values not occurring in input index get a value 1 in the inverse index.
Parameters: index (1dim int array_like) – Array with nonnegative values, which all have to be unique. It’s highest value is max = index.max(). Returns: 1dim int array – Array with length max+1, with the position in index of each of the values 0..max, or 1 if the value does not occur in index. Note
This is a low level function that does not check whether the input has indeed all unique values.
The inverse index translates the unique index numbers in a sequential index, so that
inverseUniqueIndex(index)[index] == np.arange(1+index.max())
.Examples
>>> inverseUniqueIndex([0,5,2,6]) array([ 0, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3]) >>> inverseUniqueIndex([0,5,2,6])[[0,5,2,6]] array([0, 1, 2, 3])

A common use case is when concatenating some blocks of different length. If the list a holds the length of each block, the cumsum0(a) holds the start and end of each block in the concatenation.
>>> L = [ [0,1], [2,3,4,5], [6], [7,8,9] ] >>> n = cumsum0([len(i) for i in L]) >>> print(n) [ 0 2 6 7 10] >>> C = np.concatenate(L) >>> print(C) [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9] >>> for i,j in zip(n[:1],n[1:]): ... print("%s:%s = %s" % (i,j,C[i:j])) ... 0:2 = [0 1] 2:6 = [2 3 4 5] 6:7 = [6] 7:10 = [7 8 9]

inverseIndex
(a, sort=True)[source]¶ Create the inverse of a 2Dindex array.
A 2Dindex array is a 2D integer array where only the nonnegative values. are relevant. Negative values are flagging a nonexistent element. This allows for rows with different number of entries. While in most practical cases all (nonnegative) values in a row are unique, this is not a requirement.
Parameters:  a (varray_like.) – The input index table. This can be anything that is acceptable as data for the Varray constructor.
 sort (bool.) – If True, the values on each row of the returned index are sorted. The default (False) will leave the values in the order obtained by the algorithm, which depends on Python/numpy sorting.
Returns: inv (
numpy.ndarray
) – The inverse index as an array. Each rowi
of the inverse index contains the numbers of the rows of the input in which a valuei
appeared, and padded with 1 values to make all rows equal length. Withsort=True
, the values on each row are guaranteed to be sorted.See also
Varray.inverse()
Note
If the same value occurs multiple times on the same row of the input, the inverse index will also contain repeated row numbers for that value.
Examples
>>> A = np.array([[0,1],[0,2],[1,2],[0,3]]) >>> print(A) [[0 1] [0 2] [1 2] [0 3]] >>> inv = inverseIndex(A) >>> print(inv) [[ 0 1 3] [1 0 2] [1 1 2] [1 1 3]]

findFirst
(target, values)[source]¶ Find first position of values in target.
Find the first position in the array target of all the elements in the array values.
Parameters:  target (1dim int array) – Integer array with all nonnegative values. If not 1dim, it will be flattened.

Returns: int array – Array with same size as values. For each element in values, the return array contains the position of that value in the flattened target, or 1 if that number does not occur in target. If an element from values occurs more than once in target, it is currently undefined which of those positions is returned.
Note
After
m = findIndex(target,values)
the equalitytarget[m] == values
holds for all the nonnegative positions of m.Examples
>>> A = np.array([1,3,4,5,7,3,8,9]) >>> B = np.array([0,7,1,3]) >>> ind = findFirst(A,B) >>> print(ind) [1 4 0 1] >>> (A[ind[ind>=0]] == B[ind>=0]).all() True

 vec2 ((3,) or (n,3) shaped float array_like) – Array with 1 or n vectors in 3D space.
Returns:  area ((n,) shaped float array) – The area of the parallellograms formed by the vectors vec1 and vec2.
 normal ((n,3) shaped float array) – The unit length vectors normal to each vector pair (vec1,vec2).
Note
This first computes the cross product of vec1 and vec2, which is a normal vector with length equal to the area. Then
normalize()
produces the required results.Note that where two vectors are parallel, an area zero results and an axis with components NaN.

vectorTripleProduct
(vec1, vec2, vec3)[source]¶ Compute triple product vec1 . (vec2 x vec3).
Parameters: vec2, vec3) ((vec1,) – Three arrays with same shape holding 1 or n vectors in 3D space. Returns: (n,) shaped float array – The triple product of each set of corresponding vectors from vec1, vec2, vec3. Note
The triple product is the dot product of the first vector(s) and the normal(s) on the second and third vector(s). This is also twice the volume of the parallellepid formed by the 3 vectors.
If vec1 has a unit length, the result is also the area of the parallellogram (vec2,vec3) projected in the direction vec1.
This is functionally equivalent with dotpr(vec1, np.cross(vec2, vec3)) but is implemented in a more efficient way, using the determinant formula.
