Reference on kuibit.series¶
The series
module provides a base class BaseSeries
for representing and handling series (from which TimeSeries
and
FrequencySeries
are derived).
BaseSeries
handles series that have a independent variable x
and a dependent variable y
. The derived classes have to implement setters
and getters if they need to rename these variables (e.g. x > t
). The
independent variable has to be monotonically increasing.
BaseSeries
implements several methods for operations on series.
Most of these methods are available in two flavors: those that return a new
BaseSeries
, and those which modify the object in place. The latter
have names with imperative verbs.
This module also provides the useful function sample_common()
, which
takes a list of series and resamples them to their common points.

class
kuibit.series.
BaseSeries
(x, y, guarantee_x_is_monotonic=False)[source]¶ Base class (not intended for direct use) for generic series data in which the independendent variable x is sorted.
This class is already rich of features.
 Variables
data_x (1D NumPy array or float) – Independent variable.
y (1D NumPy array or float) – Dependent variable.
spline_real (Tuple) – Coefficients for a spline represent of the real part of y.
spline_imag (Tuple) – Coefficients for a spline represent of the real part of y.
When guarantee_x_is_monotonic is True no checks will be perform to make sure that x is monotonically increasing (increasing performance). This should is used internally whenever a new series is returned from self, since we have already checked that data_x is good.
 Parameters
x (1d NumPy array or list) – Independent variable.
y (1d NumPy array or list) – Dependent variable.
guarantee_x_is_monotonic – Whether we can skip the check on monotonicity.
guarantee_x_is_monotonic – bool

.This is just like a regular “Moving average” filter, but instead of just calculating the average, a polynomial (usually 2nd or 4th order) fit is made for every point, and only the “middle” point is chosen. Since 2nd (or 4th) order information is concerned at every point, the bias introduced in “moving average” approach at local maxima or minima, is circumvented.
 Parameters
window_size (int) – Number of points of the smoothing window (needs to be odd).
order (int) – Order of the filter.

Since 2nd (or 4th) order information is concerned at every point, the bias introduced in “moving average” approach at local maxima or minima, is circumvented.
 Parameters

sample_common
(series, resample=False, piecewise_constant=False)[source]¶ Take a list of series and return new ones so that they are all defined on the same points.
If
resample
is False (default), take as input a list of series and return a new list with the same series but only defined on those points that are common to all the lists. Ifresample
is True, instead of removing points, find the common interval of definition, and resample all the series on that internal. The number of sample points is the minimum over all series. Additionally, ifpiecewise_constant=True
, the approximant used for resampling is a piecewise constant function, splines are not used, instead, the nearest neighbors are used. Use this when you have series with discontinuities. Parameters
series (list of
Series
) – The series to resample or redefine on the common pointsresample (bool) – Whether to resample the series, or just find the common points.
piecewise_constant (bool) – Whether to use the nearest neighbor resampling method instead of splines. If
piecewise_constant=True
, the approximant used for resampling is a piecewise constant function.
 Returns
