class
CompositeProcess
(*args)¶ Process obtained by transformation.
Parameters:  fdyn
FieldFunction
A field function.
 inputProc
Process
The input process.
Notes
A composite process is the image of process by the field function :
where and , defined by:
with and .
The process is defined on the domain associated to the mesh .
Examples
Create the process X:
>>> import openturns as ot >>> amplitude = [1.0, 1.0] >>> scale = [0.2, 0.3] >>> myCovModel = ot.ExponentialModel(scale, amplitude) >>> myMesh = ot.IntervalMesher([100]*2).build(ot.Interval([0.0]*2, [1.0]*2)) >>> myXProcess = ot.GaussianProcess(myCovModel, myMesh)
Create a spatial field function associated to where :
>>> g = ot.SymbolicFunction(['x1', 'x2'], ['x1^2', 'x1+x2']) >>> nSpat = 2 >>> gdyn = ot.ValueFunction(g, myMesh)
Create the Y process :
>>> myYProcess = ot.CompositeProcess(gdyn, myXProcess)
Add the trend where :
>>> f = ot.SymbolicFunction(['x1', 'x2'], ['1+2*x1', '1+3*x2^2']) >>> fTrend = ot.TrendTransform(f, myMesh)
Create the process :
>>> myYProcess2 = ot.CompositeProcess(fTrend, myXProcess)
Apply the Box Cox transformation where :
>>> h = ot.BoxCoxTransform([3.0, 0.0]) >>> hBoxCox = ot.ValueFunction(h, myMesh)
Create the Y process :
>>> myYProcess3 = ot.CompositeProcess(hBoxCox, myXProcess)

__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
According to the process, the continuous realizations are built:
 either using a dedicated functional model if it exists: e.g. a functional basis process.
 or using an interpolation from a discrete realization of the process on : in dimension , a linear interpolation and in dimension , a piecewise constant function (the value at a given position is equal to the value at the nearest vertex of the mesh of the process).
