Point¶

class
Point
(*args)¶ Real vector.
Parameters: dimension : int, , optional
The number of components.
value : float, optional
The components value. Default creates a null vector.
Examples
Create a Point
>>> import openturns as ot >>> x = ot.Point(3, 1.0) >>> x class=Point name=Unnamed dimension=3 values=[1,1,1]
Get or set terms
>>> print(x[0]) 1.0 >>> x[0] = 0.0 >>> print(x[0]) 0.0 >>> print(x[:2]) [0,1]
Create a Point from a flat (1d) array, list or tuple
>>> import numpy as np >>> y = ot.Point((0.0, 1.0, 2.0)) >>> y = ot.Point(range(3)) >>> y = ot.Point(np.arange(3))
and back
>>> np.array(y) array([ 0., 1., 2.])
