BallTree
(X, leaf_size=40, metric='minkowski', **kwargs)¶ BallTree for fast generalized Npoint problems
Read more in the User Guide.
 Parameters
 Xarraylike of shape (n_samples, n_features)
n_samples is the number of points in the data set, and n_features is the dimension of the parameter space. Note: if X is a Ccontiguous array of doubles then data will not be copied. Otherwise, an internal copy will be made.
 leaf_sizepositive int, default=40
Number of points at which to switch to bruteforce. Changing leaf_size will not affect the results of a query, but can significantly impact the speed of a query and the memory required to store the constructed tree. The amount of memory needed to store the tree scales as approximately n_samples / leaf_size. For a specified
leaf_size
, a leaf node is guaranteed to satisfyleaf_size <= n_points <= 2 * leaf_size
, except in the case thatn_samples < leaf_size
. metricstr or DistanceMetric object
the distance metric to use for the tree. Default=’minkowski’ with p=2 (that is, a euclidean metric). See the documentation of the DistanceMetric class for a list of available metrics. ball_tree.valid_metrics gives a list of the metrics which are valid for BallTree.
 Additional keywords are passed to the distance metric class.
 Note: Callable functions in the metric parameter are NOT supported for KDTree
 and Ball Tree. Function call overhead will result in very poor performance.

Examples
Query for knearest neighbors
>>> import numpy as np >>> rng = np.random.RandomState(0) >>> X = rng.random_sample((10, 3)) # 10 points in 3 dimensions >>> tree = BallTree(X, leaf_size=2) >>> dist, ind = tree.query(X[:1], k=3) >>> print(ind) # indices of 3 closest neighbors [0 3 1] >>> print(dist) # distances to 3 closest neighbors [ 0. 0.19662693 0.29473397]
Pickle and Unpickle a tree. Note that the state of the tree is saved in the pickle operation: the tree needs not be rebuilt upon unpickling.
>>> import numpy as np >>> import pickle >>> rng = np.random.RandomState(0) >>> X = rng.random_sample((10, 3)) # 10 points in 3 dimensions >>> tree = BallTree(X, leaf_size=2) >>> s = pickle.dumps(tree) >>> tree_copy = pickle.loads(s) >>> dist, ind = tree_copy.query(X[:1], k=3) >>> print(ind) # indices of 3 closest neighbors [0 3 1] >>> print(dist) # distances to 3 closest neighbors [ 0. 0.19662693 0.29473397]
Query for neighbors within a given radius
>>> import numpy as np >>> rng = np.random.RandomState(0) >>> X = rng.random_sample((10, 3)) # 10 points in 3 dimensions >>> tree = BallTree(X, leaf_size=2) >>> print(tree.query_radius(X[:1], r=0.3, count_only=True)) 3 >>> ind = tree.query_radius(X[:1], r=0.3) >>> print(ind) # indices of neighbors within distance 0.3 [3 0 1]
Compute a gaussian kernel density estimate:
>>> import numpy as np >>> rng = np.random.RandomState(42) >>> X = rng.random_sample((100, 3)) >>> tree = BallTree(X) >>> tree.kernel_density(X[:3], h=0.1, kernel='gaussian') array([ 6.94114649, 7.83281226, 7.2071716 ])
Compute a twopoint autocorrelation function
>>> import numpy as np >>> rng = np.random.RandomState(0) >>> X = rng.random_sample((30, 3)) >>> r = np.linspace(0, 1, 5) >>> tree = BallTree(X) >>> tree.two_point_correlation(X, r) array([ 30, 62, 278, 580, 820])

get_arrays
(self)¶ Get data and node arrays.
 Returns
 arrays: tuple of array
Arrays for storing tree data, index, node data and node bounds.

get_n_calls
(self)¶ Get number of calls.
 Returns
 n_calls: int
number of distance computation calls

get_tree_stats
(self)¶ Get tree status.
 Returns
 tree_stats: tuple of int
(number of trims, number of leaves, number of splits)

kernel_density
(self, X, h, kernel='gaussian', atol=0, rtol=1e08, breadth_first=True, return_log=False)¶ Compute the kernel density estimate at points X with the given kernel, using the distance metric specified at tree creation.
 Parameters
 Xarraylike of shape (n_samples, n_features)
An array of points to query. Last dimension should match dimension of training data.
 hfloat
the bandwidth of the kernel
 kernelstr, default=”gaussian”
specify the kernel to use. Options are  ‘gaussian’  ‘tophat’  ‘epanechnikov’  ‘exponential’  ‘linear’  ‘cosine’ Default is kernel = ‘gaussian’
 atol, rtolfloat, default=0, 1e8
Specify the desired relative and absolute tolerance of the result. If the true result is K_true, then the returned result K_ret satisfies
abs(K_true  K_ret) < atol + rtol * K_ret
The default is zero (i.e. machine precision) for both. breadth_firstbool, default=False
If True, use a breadthfirst search. If False (default) use a depthfirst search. Breadthfirst is generally faster for compact kernels and/or high tolerances.
 return_logbool, default=False
Return the logarithm of the result. This can be more accurate than returning the result itself for narrow kernels.
 Returns
 densityndarray of shape X.shape[:1]
The array of (log)density evaluations

query
(X, k=1, return_distance=True, dualtree=False, breadth_first=False)¶ query the tree for the k nearest neighbors
 Parameters
 Xarraylike of shape (n_samples, n_features)
An array of points to query
 kint, default=1
The number of nearest neighbors to return
 return_distancebool, default=True
if True, return a tuple (d, i) of distances and indices if False, return array i
 dualtreebool, default=False
if True, use the dual tree formalism for the query: a tree is built for the query points, and the pair of trees is used to efficiently search this space. This can lead to better performance as the number of points grows large.
 breadth_firstbool, default=False
if True, then query the nodes in a breadthfirst manner. Otherwise, query the nodes in a depthfirst manner.
 sort_resultsbool, default=True
if True, then distances and indices of each point are sorted on return, so that the first column contains the closest points. Otherwise, neighbors are returned in an arbitrary order.
 Returns
 iif return_distance == False
 (d,i)if return_distance == True
 dndarray of shape X.shape[:1] + (k,), dtype=double
Each entry gives the list of distances to the neighbors of the corresponding point.
 indarray of shape X.shape[:1] + (k,), dtype=int
Each entry gives the list of indices of neighbors of the corresponding point.

query_radius
(X, r, return_distance=False, count_only=False, sort_results=False)¶ query the tree for neighbors within a radius r
 Parameters
 Xarraylike of shape (n_samples, n_features)
An array of points to query
 rdistance within which neighbors are returned
r can be a single value, or an array of values of shape x.shape[:1] if different radii are desired for each point.
 return_distancebool, default=False
if True, return distances to neighbors of each point if False, return only neighbors Note that unlike the query() method, setting return_distance=True here adds to the computation time. Not all distances need to be calculated explicitly for return_distance=False. Results are not sorted by default: see
sort_results
keyword. count_onlybool, default=False
if True, return only the count of points within distance r if False, return the indices of all points within distance r If return_distance==True, setting count_only=True will result in an error.
 sort_resultsbool, default=False
if True, the distances and indices will be sorted before being returned. If False, the results will not be sorted. If return_distance == False, setting sort_results = True will result in an error.
 Returns
 countif count_only == True
 indif count_only == False and return_distance == False
 (ind, dist)if count_only == False and return_distance == True
 countndarray of shape X.shape[:1], dtype=int
Each entry gives the number of neighbors within a distance r of the corresponding point.
 indndarray of shape X.shape[:1], dtype=object
Each element is a numpy integer array listing the indices of neighbors of the corresponding point. Note that unlike the results of a kneighbors query, the returned neighbors are not sorted by distance by default.
 distndarray of shape X.shape[:1], dtype=object
Each element is a numpy double array listing the distances corresponding to indices in i.

reset_n_calls
(self)¶ Reset number of calls to 0.

two_point_correlation
(X, r, dualtree=False)¶ Compute the twopoint correlation function
 Parameters

An array of points to query. Last dimension should match dimension of training data.
 rarraylike
A onedimensional array of distances
 dualtreebool, default=False
If True, use a dualtree algorithm. Otherwise, use a singletree algorithm. Dual tree algorithms can have better scaling for large N.
 Returns
 countsndarray
counts[i] contains the number of pairs of points with distance less than or equal to r[i]
