hyperspy.samfire module¶

class
hyperspy.samfire.
Samfire
(model, workers=None, setup=True, **kwargs)¶ Bases:
object
Smart Adaptive Multidimensional Fitting (SAMFire) object
SAMFire is a more robust way of fitting multidimensional datasets. By extracting starting values for each pixel from already fitted pixels, SAMFire stops the fitting algorithm from getting lost in the parameter space by always starting close to the optimal solution.
SAMFire only picks starting parameters and the order the pixels (in the navigation space) are fitted, and does not provide any new minimisation algorithms.

model
¶ Model instance – The complete model

optional_components
¶ list – A list of components that can be switched off at some pixels if it returns a better Akaike’s Information Criterion with correction (AICc)

workers
¶ int – A number of processes that will perform the fitting parallely

pool
¶ samfire_pool instance – A proxy object that manages either multiprocessing or ipyparallel pool

strategies
¶ strategy list – A list of strategies that will be used to select pixel fitting order and calculate required starting parameters. Strategies come in two “flavours”  local and global. Local strategies spread the starting values to the nearest pixels and forces certain pixel fitting order. Global strategies look for clusters in parameter values, and suggests most frequent values. Global strategy do not depend on pixel fitting order, hence it is randomised.

metadata
¶ dictionary – A dictionary for important samfire parameters

active_strategy
¶ strategy – The currently active strategy from the strategies list

update_every
¶ int – If segmenter strategy is running, updates the historams every time update_every good fits are found.

plot_every
¶ int – When running, samfire plots results every time plot_every good fits are found.

save_every
¶ int – When running, samfire saves results every time save_every good fits are found.

start
()¶ start SAMFire

stop
()¶ stop SAMFire

plot
()¶ force plot of currently selected active strategy

refresh_database
()¶ refresh current active strategy database. No previous structure is preserved

backup
()¶ backs up the current version of the model

change_strategy
()¶ changes strategy to a new one. Certain rules apply

append
()¶ appends strategy to the strategies list

extend
()¶ extends strategies list

remove
()¶ removes strategy from strategies list

update
()¶ updates the current model with values, received from a worker

log
()¶ if _log exists, logs the arguments to the list.

generate_values
()¶ creates a generator to calculate values to be sent to the workers

active_strategy
Returns the active strategy

append
(strategy) appends the given strategy to the end of the strategies list
Parameters: strategy (strategy instance) –

backup
(filename=None, on_count=True) Backsup the samfire results in a file
Parameters:  filename ({str, None}) – the filename. If None, a default value of “backup_”+signal_title is used
 on_count (bool) – if True (default), only saves on the required count of steps

change_strategy
(new_strat) Changes current strategy to a new one. Certain rules apply: diffusion > diffusion : resets all “ignored” pixels diffusion > segmenter : saves already calculated pixels to be ignored
when(if) subsequently diffusion strategy is runParameters: new_strat ({int  strategy}) – index of the new strategy from the strategies list or the strategy object itself

count
= 0¶

extend
(iterable) extend the strategies list by the given iterable
Parameters: iterable (an iterable of strategy instances) –

generate_values
(need_inds) Returns an iterator that yields the index of the pixel and the value dictionary to be sent to the workers.
Parameters: need_inds (int) – the number of pixels to be returned in the generator

log
(*args) If has a list named “_log”, appends the arguments there

optional_components
= []

pixels_done
¶ Returns the number of pixels that have been solved

pixels_left
¶ Returns the number of pixels that are left to solve. This number can increase as SAMFire learns more information about the data.

plot
(on_count=False) (if possible) plots current strategy plot. Local strategies plot grayscale navigation signal with brightness representing order of the pixel selection. Global strategies plot a collection of histograms, one per parameter.
Parameters: on_count (bool) – if True, only tries to plot every speficied count, otherwise (default) always plots if possible.

plot_every
= 0

pool
= None

refresh_database
() Refreshes currently selected strategy without preserving any “ignored” pixels

remove
(thing) removes given strategy from the strategies list
Parameters: thing (int or strategy instance) – Strategy that is in current strategies list or its index.

running_pixels
= []¶

save_every
= nan

start
(**kwargs) Starts SAMFire.
Parameters: **kwargs (keyword arguments) – Any keyword arguments to be passed to Model.fit() call

update
(ind, results=None, isgood=None) Updates the current model with the results, received from the workers. Results are only stored if the results are good enough
Parameters:  ind (tuple) – contains the index of the pixel of the results
 results ({dict, None}) – dictionary of the results. If None, means we are updating inplace (e.g. refreshing the marker or strategies)
 isgood ({bool, None}) – if it is known if the results are good according to the goodnessoffit test. If None, the pixel is tested
