Estimate moments from sampleΒΆ

In this basic example we are going to estimate statistical moments from a sample, eventually from an output variable of interest.

In [1]:
from __future__ import print_function
import openturns as ot
In [2]:
# Create a sample

# model f
model = ot.SymbolicFunction(["x1", "x2"], ["x1^2+x2", "x2^2+x1"])

# input vector X
inputDist = ot.ComposedDistribution([ot.Normal()] * 2, ot.IndependentCopula(2))
inputDist.setDescription(['X1', 'X2'])
inputVector = ot.RandomVector(inputDist)

# output vector Y=f(X)
output = ot.RandomVector(model, inputVector)

# sample Y
size = 1000
sample = output.getSample(size)
In [3]:
# Estimate mean
sample.computeMean()
Out[3]:

[0.928558,1.01799]

In [4]:
# Estimate standard deviation
sample.computeStandardDeviation()
Out[4]:

[[ 1.66702 0 ]
[ 0.0547869 1.81849 ]]

In [5]:
# Estimate variance
sample.computeVariance()
Out[5]:

[2.77895,3.30989]

In [6]:
# Estimate skewness
sample.computeSkewness()
Out[6]:

[1.40965,1.73437]

In [7]:
# Estimate kurtosis
sample.computeKurtosis()
Out[7]:

[6.84373,7.96431]
