FieldFunction

class FieldFunction(*args)

Function mapping a field to a field.

Parameters:
inputMesh : Mesh

The input mesh

inputDim : int, \geq 1

Dimension d of the values of the input field

outputMesh : Mesh

The output mesh

outputDim : int, \geq 1

Dimension d' of the values of the output field

Notes

Field functions act on fields to produce fields:

f: \left| \begin{array}{rcl}
            \cM_N \times (\Rset^d)^N & \rightarrow & \cM_{N'} \times (\Rset^{d'})^{N'} \\
            F & \mapsto & F'
          \end{array} \right.

with \cM_N a mesh of \cD \subset \Rset^n, \cM_{N'} a mesh of \cD' \subset \Rset^{n'}.

A field is represented by a collection (\vect{t}_i, \vect{v}_i)_{1 \leq i \leq N} of elements of \cM_N \times (\Rset^d)^N where \vect{t}_i is a vertex of \cM_N and \vect{v}_i the associated value in \Rset^d.

The constructor builds an object which evaluation operator is not defined (it throws a NotYetImplementedException). The instanciation of such an object is used to extract an actual FieldFunction from a Study.

Examples

>>> import openturns as ot

Using the class OpenTURNSPythonFieldFunction allows to define a persistent state between the evaluations of the function.

>>> class FUNC(ot.OpenTURNSPythonFieldFunction):
...     def __init__(self):
...         # first argument:
...         mesh = ot.RegularGrid(0.0, 0.1, 11)
...         super(FUNC, self).__init__(mesh, 2, mesh, 2)
...         self.setInputDescription(['R', 'S'])
...         self.setOutputDescription(['T', 'U'])
...     def _exec(self, X):
...         Xs = ot.Sample(X)
...         Y = Xs * ([2.0]*Xs.getDimension())
...         return Y
>>> F = FUNC()

Create the associated FieldFunction:

>>> myFunc = ot.FieldFunction(F)

It is also possible to create a FieldFunction from a python function as follows:

>>> mesh = ot.RegularGrid(0.0, 0.1, 11)
>>> def myPyFunc(X):
...     Xs = ot.Sample(X)
...     values = Xs * ([2.0]*Xs.getDimension())
...     return values
>>> inputDim = 2
>>> outputDim = 2
>>> myFunc = ot.PythonFieldFunction(mesh, inputDim, mesh, outputDim, myPyFunc)

Evaluate the function on a field:

>>> X = ot.Field(mesh, ot.Normal(2).getSample(11))
>>> Y = myFunc(X)
