NumPy – 99 – tante altre risorse – 3


Continuo da qui, nell’esame di altre risorse.

Theano is a Python library that lets you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions, especially ones with multi-dimensional arrays (numpy.ndarray). Using Theano it is possible to attain speeds rivaling hand-crafted C implementations for problems involving large amounts of data. It can also surpass C on a CPU by many orders of magnitude by taking advantage of recent GPUs.

Installato via Conda ma mi da errori (di versione?). Da mettere tra le cose da esaminare in futuro (davvero, prossimamente… forse 😊).

SciPy is a collection of mathematical algorithms and convenience functions built on the Numpy extension of Python. It adds significant power to the interactive Python session by providing the user with high-level commands and classes for manipulating and visualizing data. With SciPy an interactive Python session becomes a data-processing and system-prototyping environment rivaling systems such as MATLAB, IDL, Octave, R-Lab, and SciLab.

 fmin(func, x0, args=(), xtol=0.0001, ftol=0.0001, maxiter=None, maxfun=None,
      full_output=0, disp=1, retall=0, callback=None, initial_simplex=None)

Minimize a function using the downhill simplex algorithm.

This algorithm only uses function values, not derivatives or second

func : callable func(x,*args)
    The objective function to be minimized.
x0 : ndarray
    Initial guess.
args : tuple, optional
    Extra arguments passed to func, i.e. ``f(x,*args)``.
xtol : float, optional
    Absolute error in xopt between iterations that is acceptable for
ftol : number, optional
    Absolute error in func(xopt) between iterations that is acceptable for
maxiter : int, optional
    Maximum number of iterations to perform.
maxfun : number, optional
    Maximum number of function evaluations to make.
full_output : bool, optional
    Set to True if fopt and warnflag outputs are desired.
disp : bool, optional
    Set to True to print convergence messages.
retall : bool, optional
    Set to True to return list of solutions at each iteration.
callback : callable, optional
    Called after each iteration, as callback(xk), where xk is the
    current parameter vector.
initial_simplex : array_like of shape (N + 1, N), optional
    Initial simplex. If given, overrides `x0`.
    ``initial_simplex[j,:]`` should contain the coordinates of
    the j-th vertex of the ``N+1`` vertices in the simplex, where
    ``N`` is the dimension.

xopt : ndarray
    Parameter that minimizes function.
fopt : float
    Value of function at minimum: ``fopt = func(xopt)``.
iter : int
    Number of iterations performed.
funcalls : int
    Number of function calls made.
warnflag : int
    1 : Maximum number of function evaluations made.
    2 : Maximum number of iterations reached.
allvecs : list
    Solution at each iteration.

minimize: Interface to minimization algorithms for multivariate
    functions. See the 'Nelder-Mead' `method` in particular.

Uses a Nelder-Mead simplex algorithm to find the minimum of function of
one or more variables.

This algorithm has a long history of successful use in applications.
But it will usually be slower than an algorithm that uses first or
second derivative information. In practice it can have poor
performance in high-dimensional problems and is not robust to
minimizing complicated functions. Additionally, there currently is no
complete theory describing when the algorithm will successfully
converge to the minimum, or how fast it will if it does. Both the ftol and
xtol criteria must be met for convergence.

Anche questo da esaminare in dettaglio prossimamente 😊

Le risorse disponibili per SciPy sono  infinite  tantissime. Roba da Ok, panico! fin da prima di cominciare 😯
Ma mi serve un attimo di riflessione, riorganizzare le idee. E ci sono anche altre cose che mi stanno tentando… 😯
