WeightedExperiment¶

class
WeightedExperiment
(*args)¶ Weighted experiment.
 Available constructor:
 WeightedExperiment(distribution=ot.Uniform(), size=100)
Parameters: distribution :
Distribution
Distribution used to generate the set of input data.
size : positive int
Number of points that will be generated in the experiment.
Notes
WeightedExperiment is used to generate the points so that the mean is approximated as follows:
where is a distribution, is a function and are the weights associated with the points. By default, all the weights are equal to .
A WeightedExperiment object can be created only through its derived classes which are distributed in three groups:
 The first category is made up of the random patterns, where the set of input data is generated from the joint distribution of the input random vector, according to these sampling techniques:
 The second category contains the
low discrepancy sequences
. OpenTURNS proposes the Faure, Halton, Haselgrove, Reverse Halton and Sobol sequences.  The third category consists of deterministic patterns:

(*args)¶

generate
()¶ Generate points according to the type of the experiment.
Returns: sample :
NumericalSample
Points which constitute the design of experiments with . The sampling method is defined by the nature of the weighted experiment.
Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> ot.RandomGenerator.SetSeed(0) >>> myExperiment = ot.MonteCarloExperiment(ot.Normal(2), 5) >>> sample = myExperiment.generate() >>> print(sample) [ X0 X1 ] 0 : [ 0.608202 1.26617 ] 1 : [ 0.438266 1.20548 ] 2 : [ 2.18139 0.350042 ] 3 : [ 0.355007 1.43725 ] 4 : [ 0.810668 0.793156 ]

generateWithWeights
()¶ Generate points and their associated weight according to the type of the experiment.
Returns: sample :
NumericalSample
The points which constitute the design of experiments. The sampling method is defined by the nature of the experiment.

Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> ot.RandomGenerator.SetSeed(0) >>> myExperiment = ot.MonteCarloExperiment(ot.Normal(2), 5) >>> sample, weights = myExperiment.generateWithWeights() >>> print(sample) [ X0 X1 ] 0 : [ 0.608202 1.26617 ] 1 : [ 0.438266 1.20548 ] 2 : [ 2.18139 0.350042 ] 3 : [ 0.355007 1.43725 ] 4 : [ 0.810668 0.793156 ] >>> print(weights) [0.2,0.2,0.2,0.2,0.2]
