SimpleConstraint#

class zfit.constraint.SimpleConstraint(func, params)[source]#

Bases: zfit.core.constraint.BaseConstraint

Constraint from a (function returning a) Tensor.

The parameters are named “param_{i}” with i starting from 0 and corresponding to the index of params.

Parameters
  • func (Callable) – Callable that constructs the constraint and returns a tensor.

  • params (ztyping.ParameterType | None) – The dependents (independent zfit.Parameter) of the loss. If not given, the dependents are figured out automatically.

add_cache_deps(cache_deps, allow_non_cachable=True)#

Add dependencies that render the cache invalid if they change.

Parameters
  • cache_deps (Union[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitGraphCachable, Iterable[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitGraphCachable]]) –

  • allow_non_cachable (bool) – If True, allow cache_dependents to be non-cachables. If False, any cache_dependents that is not a ZfitGraphCachable will raise an error.

Raises

TypeError – if one of the cache_dependents is not a ZfitGraphCachable _and_ allow_non_cachable if False.

property dtype: tensorflow.python.framework.dtypes.DType#

The dtype of the object.

Return type

DType

get_cache_deps(only_floating=True)#

Return a set of all independent Parameter that this object depends on.

Parameters

only_floating – If True, only return floating Parameter

get_dependencies(only_floating=True)#

DEPRECATED FUNCTION

Warning: THIS FUNCTION IS DEPRECATED. It will be removed in a future version. Instructions for updating: Use get_params instead if you want to retrieve the independent parameters or get_cache_deps in case you need the numerical cache dependents (advanced).

get_params(floating=True, is_yield=None, extract_independent=True, only_floating=<class 'zfit.util.checks.NotSpecified'>)#

Recursively collect parameters that this object depends on according to the filter criteria.

Which parameters should be included can be steered using the arguments as a filter.
  • None: do not filter on this. E.g. floating=None will return parameters that are floating as well as

    parameters that are fixed.

  • True: only return parameters that fulfil this criterion

  • False: only return parameters that do not fulfil this criterion. E.g. floating=False will return

    only parameters that are not floating.

Parameters
  • floating (bool | None) – if a parameter is floating, e.g. if floating() returns True

  • is_yield (bool | None) – if a parameter is a yield of the _current_ model. This won’t be applied recursively, but may include yields if they do also represent a parameter parametrizing the shape. So if the yield of the current model depends on other yields (or also non-yields), this will be included. If, however, just submodels depend on a yield (as their yield) and it is not correlated to the output of our model, they won’t be included.

  • extract_independent (bool | None) – If the parameter is an independent parameter, i.e. if it is a ZfitIndependentParameter.

Return type

set[ZfitParameter]

property name: str#

The name of the object.

Return type

str

register_cacher(cacher)#

Register a cacher that caches values produces by this instance; a dependent.

Parameters

cacher (Union[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitGraphCachable, Iterable[zfit.core.interfaces.ZfitGraphCachable]]) –

reset_cache_self()#

Clear the cache of self and all dependent cachers.
