A divergence estimator of two sets of samples.

Project Description

universal-divergence

universal-divergence is a Python module for estimating divergence of two sets of samples generated from the two underlying distributions. The theory of the estimator is based on a paper written by Q.Wang et al [1].

Install

pip install universal-divergence

Example

from __future__ import print_function

import numpy as np
from universal_divergence import estimate

mean = [0, 0]
cov = [[1, 0], [0, 10]]
x = np.random.multivariate_normal(mean, cov, 100)
y = np.random.multivariate_normal(mean, cov, 100)
print(estimate(x, y))  # will be close to 0.0

mean2 = [10, 0]
cov2 = [[5, 0], [0, 5]]
z = np.random.multivariate_normal(mean2, cov2, 100)
print(estimate(x, z))  # will be bigger than 0.0
