ANCOVA
(*args)¶ ANalysis of COVAriance method (ANCOVA).
 Available constructor:
 ANCOVA(functionalChaosResult, correlatedInput)
Parameters: functionalChaosResult :
FunctionalChaosResult
Functional chaos result approximating the model response with uncorrelated inputs.
correlatedInput : 2d sequence of float
Correlated inputs used to compute the real values of the output. Its dimension must be equal to the number of inputs of the model.
Notes
ANCOVA, a variancebased method described in [Caniou2012], is a generalization of the ANOVA (ANalysis Of VAriance) decomposition for models with correlated input parameters.
Let us consider a model without making any hypothesis on the dependence structure of , a n_Xdimensional random vector. The covariance decomposition requires a functional decomposition of the model. Thus the model response is expanded as a sum of functions of increasing dimension as follows:
(1)¶
is the mean of . Each function represents, for any non empty set , the combined contribution of the variables to .
Using the properties of the covariance, the variance of can be decomposed into a variance part and a covariance part as follows:
This variance formula enables to define each total part of variance of due to , , as the sum of a physical (or uncorrelated) part and a correlated part such as:
where is the uncorrelated part of variance of Y due to :
and is the contribution of the correlation of with the other parameters:
As the computational cost of the indices with the numerical model can be very high, [Caniou2012] suggests to approximate the model response with a polynomial chaos expansion:
However, for the sake of computational simplicity, the latter is constructed considering independent components . Thus the chaos basis is not orthogonal with respect to the correlated inputs under consideration, and it is only used as a metamodel to generate approximated evaluations of the model response and its summands (1).
The next step consists in identifying the component functions. For instance, for :
where is a set of degrees associated to the univariate polynomial .
Then the model response is evaluated using a sample of the correlated joint distribution. Finally, the several indices are computed using the model response and its component functions that have been identified on the polynomial chaos.
Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> ot.RandomGenerator.SetSeed(0) >>> # Model and distribution definition >>> model = ot.SymbolicFunction(['X1','X2'], ['4.*X1 + 5.*X2']) >>> distribution = ot.ComposedDistribution([ot.Normal()] * 2) >>> S = ot.CorrelationMatrix(2) >>> S[1, 0] = 0.3 >>> R = ot.NormalCopula().GetCorrelationFromSpearmanCorrelation(S) >>> CorrelatedInputDistribution = ot.ComposedDistribution([ot.Normal()] * 2, ot.NormalCopula(R)) >>> sample = CorrelatedInputDistribution.getSample(200) >>> # Functional chaos computation >>> productBasis = ot.OrthogonalProductPolynomialFactory([ot.HermiteFactory()] * 2, ot.EnumerateFunction(2)) >>> adaptiveStrategy = ot.FixedStrategy(productBasis, 15) >>> projectionStrategy = ot.LeastSquaresStrategy(ot.MonteCarloExperiment(100)) >>> algo = ot.FunctionalChaosAlgorithm(model, distribution, adaptiveStrategy, projectionStrategy) >>> algo.run() >>> ancovaResult = ot.ANCOVA(algo.getResult(), sample) >>> indices = ancovaResult.getIndices() >>> print(indices) [0.408398,0.591602] >>> uncorrelatedIndices = ancovaResult.getUncorrelatedIndices() >>> print(uncorrelatedIndices) [0.284905,0.468108] >>> # Get indices measuring the correlated effects >>> print(indices  uncorrelatedIndices) [0.123494,0.123494]

getIndices
(marginalIndex=0)¶ Accessor to the ANCOVA indices.
Parameters: marginalIndex : int, , optional
Index of the model’s marginal used to estimate the indices. By default, marginalIndex is equal to 0.
Returns: indices :
Point
List of the ANCOVA indices measuring the contribution of the input variables to the variance of the model. These indices are made up of a physical part and a correlated part. The first one is obtained thanks to
getUncorrelatedIndices()
. The effects of the correlation are represented by the indices resulting from the subtraction of thegetIndices()
andgetUncorrelatedIndices()
lists.
