ODR(data, model, beta0=None, delta0=None, ifixb=None, ifixx=None, job=None, iprint=None, errfile=None, rptfile=None, ndigit=None, taufac=None, sstol=None, partol=None, maxit=None, stpb=None, stpd=None, sclb=None, scld=None, work=None, iwork=None)¶
The ODR class gathers all information and coordinates the running of the main fitting routine.
Members of instances of the ODR class have the same names as the arguments to the initialization routine.
data : Data class instance
instance of the Data class
model : Model class instance
instance of the Model class
beta0 : array_like of rank-1
a rank-1 sequence of initial parameter values. Optional if model provides an “estimate” function to estimate these values.
delta0 : array_like of floats of rank-1, optional
a (double-precision) float array to hold the initial values of the errors in the input variables. Must be same shape as data.x
ifixb : array_like of ints of rank-1, optional
sequence of integers with the same length as beta0 that determines which parameters are held fixed. A value of 0 fixes the parameter, a value > 0 makes the parameter free.
ifixx : array_like of ints with same shape as data.x, optional
an array of integers with the same shape as data.x that determines which input observations are treated as fixed. One can use a sequence of length m (the dimensionality of the input observations) to fix some dimensions for all observations. A value of 0 fixes the observation, a value > 0 makes it free.
job : int, optional
an integer telling ODRPACK what tasks to perform. See p. 31 of the ODRPACK User’s Guide if you absolutely must set the value here. Use the method set_job post-initialization for a more readable interface.
iprint : int, optional
an integer telling ODRPACK what to print. See pp. 33-34 of the ODRPACK User’s Guide if you absolutely must set the value here. Use the method set_iprint post-initialization for a more readable interface.
errfile : str, optional
string with the filename to print ODRPACK errors to. Do Not Open This File Yourself!
rptfile : str, optional
string with the filename to print ODRPACK summaries to. Do Not Open This File Yourself!
ndigit : int, optional
integer specifying the number of reliable digits in the computation of the function.
taufac : float, optional
float specifying the initial trust region. The default value is 1. The initial trust region is equal to taufac times the length of the first computed Gauss-Newton step. taufac must be less than 1.
sstol : float, optional
float specifying the tolerance for convergence based on the relative change in the sum-of-squares. The default value is eps**(1/2) where eps is the smallest value such that 1 + eps > 1 for double precision computation on the machine. sstol must be less than 1.
partol : float, optional
float specifying the tolerance for convergence based on the relative change in the estimated parameters. The default value is eps**(2/3) for explicit models and
eps**(1/3)for implicit models. partol must be less than 1.
maxit : int, optional
integer specifying the maximum number of iterations to perform. For first runs, maxit is the total number of iterations performed and defaults to 50. For restarts, maxit is the number of additional iterations to perform and defaults to 10.
stpb : array_like, optional
len(stpb) == len(beta0)) of relative step sizes to compute finite difference derivatives wrt the parameters.
stpd : optional
stpd.shape == data.x.shapeor
stpd.shape == (m,)) of relative step sizes to compute finite difference derivatives wrt the input variable errors. If stpd is a rank-1 array with length m (the dimensionality of the input variable), then the values are broadcast to all observations.
sclb : array_like, optional
len(stpb) == len(beta0)) of scaling factors for the parameters. The purpose of these scaling factors are to scale all of the parameters to around unity. Normally appropriate scaling factors are computed if this argument is not specified. Specify them yourself if the automatic procedure goes awry.
scld : array_like, optional
array (scld.shape == data.x.shape or scld.shape == (m,)) of scaling factors for the errors in the input variables. Again, these factors are automatically computed if you do not provide them. If scld.shape == (m,), then the scaling factors are broadcast to all observations.
work : ndarray, optional
array to hold the double-valued working data for ODRPACK. When restarting, takes the value of self.output.work.
iwork : ndarray, optional
array to hold the integer-valued working data for ODRPACK. When restarting, takes the value of self.output.iwork.
data (Data) The data for this fit model (Model) The model used in fit output (Output) An instance if the Output class containing all of the returned data from an invocation of ODR.run() or ODR.restart()
Restarts the run with iter more iterations.
Run the fitting routine with all of the information given and with
set_iprint([init, so_init, iter, so_iter, ...])
Set the iprint parameter for the printing of computation reports.
set_job([fit_type, deriv, var_calc, ...])
Sets the “job” parameter is a hopefully comprehensible way.
