Python port of the UniDip clustering algorithm

Project description

UniDip Python Port

See reference paper:

UniDip is a noise robust clustering algorithm for 1 dimensional numeric data. It recursively extracts peaks of density in the data utilizing the Hartigan Dip-test of Unimodality.


coming soon...

pip3.6 install unidip


Basic Usage

from unidip import UniDip

# create bi-modal distribution
dat = np.concatenate([np.random.randn(200)-3, np.random.randn(200)+3])

# sort data so returned indices are meaningful
dat = np.msort(dat)

# get start and stop indices of peaks 
intervals = UniDip(dat).run()

Advanced Options

  • alpha: control sensitivity as p-value. Default is 0.05. increase to isolate more peaks with less confidence. Or, decrease to isolate only peaks that are least likely to be noise.
  • mrg_dst: Defines how close intervals must be before they are merged.
  • ntrials: how many trials are run in Hartigan Dip Test more trials adds confidance but takes longer.
intervals = UniDip(dat, alpha=0.001, ntrials=1000, mrg_dst=5).run()
