woo.linterpolation
¶
Module for rudimentary support of manipulation with piecewiselinear functions (which are usually interpolations of higherorder functions, whence the module name). Interpolation is always given as two lists of the same length, where the xlist must be increasing.
Periodicity is supported by supposing that the interpolation can wrap from the last xvalue to the first xvalue (which should be 0 for meaningful results).
Nonperiodic interpolation can be converted to periodic one by padding the interpolation with constant head and tail using the sanitizeInterpolation function.
There is a c++ template function for interpolating on such sequences in pkg/common/Engine/PartialEngine/LinearInterpolate.hpp (stateful, therefore fast for sequential reads).
TODO: Interpolating from within python is not (yet) supported.

integral
(x, y)[source]¶ Return integral of piecewiselinear function given by points x0,x1,… and y0,y1,…

woo.linterpolation.
revIntegrateLinear
(I, x0, y0, x1, y1)[source]¶ Helper function, returns value of integral variable x for linear function f passing through (x0,y0),(x1,y1) such that 1. x∈[x0,x1] 2. ∫_x0^x f dx=I and raise exception if such number doesn’t exist or the solution is not unique (possible?)

woo.linterpolation.
sanitizeInterpolation
(x, y, x0, x1)[source]¶ Extends piecewiselinear function in such way that it spans at least the x0…x1 interval, by adding constant padding at the beginning (using y0) and/or at the end (using y1) or not at all.

xFractionalFromIntegral
(integral, x, y)[source]¶ Return x within range x0…xn such that ∫_x0^x f dx==integral. Raises error if the integral value is not reached within the xrange.

xFromIntegral
(integralValue, x, y)[source]¶ Return x such that ∫_x0^x f dx==integral. x wraps around at xn. For meaningful results, therefore, x0 should == 0
