A Python module for nonnegative matrix factorization

Project description

Nimfa

build: passing build: passing GitHub release BSD license

Nimfa is a Python module that implements many algorithms for nonnegative matrix factorization. Nimfa is distributed under the BSD license.

The project was started in 2011 by Marinka Zitnik as a Google Summer of Code project, and since then many volunteers have contributed. See AUTHORS file for a complete list of contributors.

It is currently maintained by a team of volunteers.

Dependencies

Nimfa is tested to work under Python 2.7 and Python 3.4.

The required dependencies to build the software are NumPy >= 1.7.0, SciPy >= 0.12.0.

For running the examples Matplotlib >= 1.1.1 is required.

Install

This package uses setuptools, which is a common way of installing python modules. To install in your home directory, use:

python setup.py install --user

To install for all users on Unix/Linux:

sudo python setup.py install

For more detailed installation instructions, see the web page http://ai.stanford.edu/~marinka/nimfa

Use

Run alternating least squares nonnegative matrix factorization with projected gradients and Random Vcol initialization algorithm on medulloblastoma gene expression data::

>>> import nimfa
>>> V = nimfa.examples.medulloblastoma.read(normalize=True)
>>> lsnmf = nimfa.Lsnmf(V, seed='random_vcol', rank=50, max_iter=100)
>>> lsnmf_fit = lsnmf()
>>> print('Rss: %5.4f' % lsnmf_fit.fit.rss())
Rss: 0.2668
>>> print('Evar: %5.4f' % lsnmf_fit.fit.evar())
Evar: 0.9997
>>> print('K-L divergence: %5.4f' % lsnmf_fit.distance(metric='kl'))
K-L divergence: 38.8744
>>> print('Sparseness, W: %5.4f, H: %5.4f' % lsnmf_fit.fit.sparseness())
Sparseness, W: 0.7297, H: 0.8796
