class
AggregatedProcess
(*args)¶ Aggregation of several processes in one process.
 Available constructor:
 AggregatedProcess(collProc)
Parameters:  collProcsequence of
Process
Collection of processes which all have the same input dimension.
Notes
If we note for the collection of processes, where for all . Then the resulting aggregated process where . The mesh of the first process has been assigned to the process .
Examples
Create an aggregated process:
>>> import openturns as ot >>> myMesher = ot.IntervalMesher(ot.Indices([5,10])) >>> lowerbound = [0.0, 0.0] >>> upperBound = [2.0, 4.0] >>> myInterval = ot.Interval(lowerbound, upperBound) >>> myMesh = myMesher.build(myInterval) >>> myProcess1 = ot.WhiteNoise(ot.Normal(), myMesh) >>> myProcess2 = ot.WhiteNoise(ot.Triangular(), myMesh) >>> myAggregatedProcess = ot.AggregatedProcess([myProcess1, myProcess2])
Draw one realization:
>>> myGraph = myAggregatedProcess.getRealization().drawMarginal(0)

__init__
(*args)¶ Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

getClassName
()¶ Accessor to the object’s name.
Returns:  class_namestr
The object class name (object.__class__.__name__).

getContinuousRealization
()¶ Get a continuous realization.
Returns:  realization
Function
Each process of the collection is continuously realized on the common domain .
 realization

getCovarianceModel
()¶ Accessor to the covariance model.
Returns:  cov_model
CovarianceModel
Covariance model, if any.
 cov_model

getDescription
()¶ Get the description of the process.
Returns:  description
Description
Description of the process.
 description

getFuture
(*args)¶ Prediction of the future iterations of the process.
Parameters:  stepNumberint,
Number of future steps.
 sizeint, , optional
Number of futures needed. Default is 1.
Returns:  prediction
ProcessSample
orTimeSeries

TimeSeries
. Otherwise, it is aProcessSample
.

getId
()¶ Accessor to the object’s id.
Returns:  idint
Internal unique identifier.

getInputDimension
()¶ Get the dimension of the domain .
Returns:  nint
Dimension of the domain : .

getMarginal
(*args)¶ Accessor the marginal processes.
 Available usages:
getMarginal(index)
getMarginal(indices)
Parameters:  indexint
Index of the selected marginal process.
 indices
Indices
List of indices of the selected marginal processes.
Notes
The selected marginal processes are extracted if the list of indices does not mingle the processes of the initial collection: take care to extract all the marginal processes process by process. For example, if , and then you can extract Indices([1,0,2,4,6]) but not Indices([1,2,0,4,6]).

getName
()¶ Accessor to the object’s name.

 realization

getSample
(size)¶ Get realizations of the process.
Parameters:  nint,
Number of realizations of the process needed.

Internal unique identifier.

getTimeGrid
()¶ Get the time grid of observation of the process.
Returns:  timeGrid
RegularGrid
Time grid of a process when the mesh associated to the process can be interpreted as a
RegularGrid
. We check if the vertices of the mesh are scalar and are regularly spaced in but we don’t check if the connectivity of the mesh is conform to the one of a regular grid (without any hole and composed of ordered instants).
 timeGrid

getTrend
()¶ Accessor to the trend.
Returns:  trend

getVisibility
()¶ Accessor to the object’s visibility state.
Returns:  visiblebool
Visibility flag.

hasName

True if the name is not empty.

hasVisibleName
()¶ Test if the object has a distinguishable name.
Returns:  hasVisibleNamebool
True if the name is not empty and not the default one.

Returns:  isNormalbool
True if the process is normal.
Notes
A stochastic process is normal if all its finite dimensional joint distributions are normal, which means that for all and , with , there is and such that:
where , and and is the symmetric matrix:
A Gaussian process is entirely defined by its mean function and its covariance function (or correlation function ).

Notes
A process is stationary if its distribution is invariant by translation: , , , we have:
