TensorFlow implementation of the Lorentz Boost Network (LBN).

Project description

Lorentz Boost Network (LBN) pipeline status

TensorFlow implementation of the Lorentz Boost Network from arXiv:1812.09722 [hep-ex].

Original repository:

Usage example

from lbn import LBN

# initialize the LBN, set 10 combinations and pairwise boosting
lbn = LBN(10, boost_mode=LBN.PAIRS)

# create a feature tensor based on input four-vectors
features = lbn(four_vectors)

# use the features as input for a subsequent, application-specific network

Installation and dependencies

Via pip:

pip install lbn

NumPy and TensorFlow are the only dependencies.


Tests should be run for Python 2 and 3. The following commands assume you are root directory of the LBN respository:

python -m unittest test

# or via docker, python 2
docker run --rm -v `pwd`:/root/lbn -w /root/lbn tensorflow/tensorflow:latest python -m unittest test

# or via docker, python 3
docker run --rm -v `pwd`:/root/lbn -w /root/lbn tensorflow/tensorflow:latest-py3 python -m unittest test


If you like to contribute, we are happy to receive pull requests. Just make sure to add new test cases and run the tests. Also, please use a coding style that is compatible with our .flake8 config.
