About pyeee

pyeee is a Python library for performing parameter screening of computational models. It uses Morris' method of Elementary Effects and also its extension of Efficient or Sequential Elementary Effects published of

Computationally inexpensive identification of noninformative model parameters by sequential screening

pyeee can be used with Python functions but wrappers are provided to use it with executables as well. Function evaluation can be distributed with Python's multiprocessing or via MPI.

Quick usage guide

Simple Python function

Consider the Ishigami-Homma function: $y = \sin(x_0) + a,\sin(x_1)^2 + b,x_2^4\sin(x_0)$.

Taking $a = b = 1$ gives:

	import numpy as np
	def ishigami1(x):
	   return np.sin(x[0]) + np.sin(x[1])**2 + x[2]**4 * np.sin(x[0])

The three paramters $x_0$, $x_1$, $x_2$ follow uniform distributions between $-\pi$ and $+\pi$.

Morris' Elementary Effects can then be calculated like:

	npars = 3
	# lower boundaries
	lb = np.ones(npars) * (-np.pi)
	# upper boundaries
	ub = np.ones(npars) * np.pi

    # Elementary Effects
	from pyeee import ee
    np.random.seed(seed=1023) # for reproducibility of examples
	out = ee(ishigami1, lb, ub)

which gives the Elementary Effects ($\mu*$):

    # mu*
    print("{:.1f} {:.1f} {:.1f}".format(*out[:,0]))
    # gives: 212.4 0.6 102.8

Sequential Elementary Effects distinguish between informative and uninformative parameters using several times Morris' Elementary Effects:

	# screen
	from pyeee import eee
    np.random.seed(seed=1023) # for reproducibility of examples
	out = eee(ishigami1, lb, ub)

which returns a logical ndarray with True for the informative parameters and False for the uninformative parameters:

    print(out)
    [ True False  True]

Python function with extra parameters

The function for pyeee must be of the form func(x). Use Python's partial from the functools module to pass other function parameters.

For example pass the parameters $a$ and $b$ to the Ishigami-Homma function.

	from functools import partial

	def ishigami(x, a, b):
	   return np.sin(x[0]) + a * np.sin(x[1])**2 + b * x[2]**4 * np.sin(x[0])

	def call_ishigami(ishi, a, b, x):
	   return ishi(x, a, b)

	# Partialise function with fixed parameters
	a = 0.5
	b = 2.0
	func   = partial(call_ishigami, ishigami, a, b)
	npars = 3

	# lower boundaries
	lb = np.ones(npars) * (-np.pi)
	# upper boundaries
	ub = np.ones(npars) * np.pi

    # Elementary Effects
	out = ee(func, lb, ub)

partial passes $a$ and $b$ to the function call_ishigami already during definition so that pyeee can then simply call it as func(x), so that x is passed to call_ishigami as well.

Function wrappers

pyeee provides wrappers to use with partial.

	from pyeee import func_wrapper
	args = [a, b]
	kwargs = {}
	func = partial(func_wrapper, ishigami, args, kwargs)

	# screen
	out = eee(func, lb, ub)

There are wrappers to use with Python functions with or without masking parameters, as well as wrappers for external executables. See the documentation for details.
