Polynomials as a numpy datatype
Numpoly is a generic library for creating, manipulating and evaluating arrays of polynomials.
The polynomial base class numpoly.ndpoly is a subclass of numpy.ndarray implemented to represent polynomials as array element. This makes the library very fast with the respect of the size of the coefficients. It is also adds compatibility with numpy functions and methods, where that makes sense, making the interface more intuitive.
Many numerical analysis, polynomial approximations as proxy predictors for real predictors to do analysis on. These models are often solutions to non-linear problems discretized with high mesh. As such, the corresponding polynomial approximation consist of high number of dimensions and large multi-dimensional polynomial coefficients. For these kind of problems numpoly is a good fit.
One example where numpoly is used as the backend is the uncertainty quantification library chaospy.
Installation should be straight forward:
pip install numpoly
And you should be ready to go.
Constructing polynomial is typically done using one of the available constructors:
>>> numpoly.monomial(start=0, stop=4, names=("x", "y")) polynomial([1, y, x, y**2, x*y, x**2, y**3, x*y**2, x**2*y, x**3])
It is also possible to construct your own from symbols:
>>> x, y = numpoly.symbols("x y") >>> numpoly.polynomial([1, x**2-1, x*y, y**2-1]) polynomial([1, -1+x**2, x*y, -1+y**2])
Or in combination with numpy objects using various arithmetics:
>>> x**numpy.arange(4)-y**numpy.arange(3, -1, -1) polynomial([1-y**3, x-y**2, x**2-y, -1+x**3])
The constructed polynomials can be evaluated as needed:
>>> poly = 3*x+2*y+1 >>> poly(x=y, y=[1, 2, 3]) polynomial([3+3*y, 5+3*y, 7+3*y])
Or manipulated using various numpy functions:
>>> numpy.reshape(x**numpy.arange(4), (2, 2)) polynomial([[1, x], [x**2, x**3]]) >>> numpy.sum(numpoly.monomial(13, names="z")[::3]) polynomial(1+z**3+z**6+z**9+z**12)
In addition there are also several operators specific to the polynomial:
>>> numpoly.diff([1, x, x**2], x) polynomial([0, 1, 2*x]) >>> numpoly.gradient([x*y, x+y]) polynomial([[y, 1], [x, 1]])
