=head1 NAME

PDL::Primitive - primitive operations for pdl

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module provides some primitive and useful functions defined
using PDL::PP and able to use the new indexing tricks.

See L<PDL::Indexing|PDL::Indexing> for how to use indices creatively.
For explanation of the signature format, see L<PDL::PP|PDL::PP>.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

=head1 FUNCTIONS



=cut






=head2 inner

=for sig

  Signature: (a(n); b(n); [o]c())



=for ref

Inner product over one dimension

 c = sum_i a_i * b_i



=for bad

=for bad

If C<a() * b()> contains only bad data,
C<c()> is set bad. Otherwise C<c()> will have its bad flag cleared,
as it will not contain any bad values.



=cut






*inner = \&PDL::inner;





=head2 outer

=for sig

  Signature: (a(n); b(m); [o]c(n,m))



=for ref

outer product over one dimension

Naturally, it is possible to achieve the effects of outer
product simply by threading over the "C<*>"
operator but this function is provided for convenience.



=for bad

outer processes bad values.
It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.


=cut






*outer = \&PDL::outer;




=head2 x

=for sig

 Signature: (a(i,z), b(x,i),[o]c(x,z))

=for ref

Matrix multiplication

PDL overloads the C<x> operator (normally the repeat operator) for
matrix multiplication.  The number of columns (size of the 0
dimension) in the left-hand argument must normally equal the number of
rows (size of the 1 dimension) in the right-hand argument.

Row vectors are represented as (N x 1) two-dimensional PDLs, or you
may be sloppy and use a one-dimensional PDL.  Column vectors are
represented as (1 x N) two-dimensional PDLs.

Threading occurs in the usual way, but as both the 0 and 1 dimension
(if present) are included in the operation, you must be sure that
you don't try to thread over either of those dims.

EXAMPLES

Here are some simple ways to define vectors and matrices:

 pdl> $r = pdl(1,2);                # A row vector
 pdl> $c = pdl([[3],[4]]);          # A column vector
 pdl> $c = pdl(3,4)->(*1);          # A column vector, using NiceSlice
 pdl> $m = pdl([[1,2],[3,4]]);      # A 2x2 matrix

Now that we have a few objects prepared, here is how to
matrix-multiply them:

 pdl> print $r x $m                 # row x matrix = row
 [
  [ 7 10]
 ]

 pdl> print $m x $r                 # matrix x row = ERROR
 PDL: Dim mismatch in matmult of [2x2] x [2x1]: 2 != 1

 pdl> print $m x $c                 # matrix x column = column
 [
  [ 5]
  [11]
 ]

 pdl> print $m x 2                  # Trivial case: scalar mult.
 [
  [2 4]
  [6 8]
 ]

 pdl> print $r x $c                 # row x column = scalar
 [
  [11]
 ]

 pdl> print $c x $r                 # column x row = matrix
 [
  [3 6]
  [4 8]
 ]


INTERNALS

The mechanics of the multiplication are carried out by the
L<matmult|/matmult> method.

=for ref

Matrix multiplication

Notionally, matrix multiplication $a x $b is equivalent to the
threading expression

    $a->dummy(1)->inner($b->xchg(0,1)->dummy(2),$c);

but for large matrices that breaks CPU cache and is slow.  Instead,
matmult calculates its result in 32x32x32 tiles, to keep the memory
footprint within cache as long as possible on most modern CPUs.

For usage, see L<x|/x>, a description of the overloaded 'x' operator



=for bad

matmult ignores the bad-value flag of the input piddles.
It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

Inner product of two vectors and a matrix

=for ref

Efficient Triple matrix product C<a*b*c>

Efficiency comes from by using the temporary C<tmp>. This operation only
scales as C<N**3> whereas threading using L<inner2|/inner2> would scale
as C<N**4>.

The reason for having this routine is that you do not need to
have the same thread-dimensions for C<tmp> as for the other arguments,
which in case of large numbers of matrices makes this much more
memory-efficient.

It is hoped that things like this could be taken care of as a kind of
closures at some point.

=for ref

Threaded Index Add: Add C<a> to the C<ind> element of C<sum>, i.e:

Simple Example:

  indadd($a,$ind, $sum);
  print $sum
  #Result: ( 2 added to element 3 of $sum)
  # [0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0]

Threaded Example:

  $a = pdl( 1,2,3);
  $ind = pdl( 1,4,6);
  $sum = zeroes(10);
  indadd($a,$ind, $sum);
  print $sum."\n";
  #Result: ( 1, 2, and 3 added to elements 1,4,6 $sum)

=for ref

1D convolution along first dimension

The m-th element of the discrete convolution of an input piddle
C<$a> of size C<$M>, and a kernel piddle C<$kern> of size C<$P>, is
calculated as

                              n = ($P-1)/2
                              ====
                              \
  ($a conv1d $kern)[m]   =     >      $a_ext[m - n] * $kern[n]
                              /
                              ====
                              n = -($P-1)/2

where C<$a_ext> is either the periodic (or reflected) extension of
C<$a> so it is equal to C<$a> on C< 0..$M-1 > and equal to the
corresponding periodic/reflected image of C<$a> outside that range.


=for example

  $con = conv1d sequence(10), pdl(-1,0,1);

  $con = conv1d sequence(10), pdl(-1,0,1), {Boundary => 'reflect'};

By default, periodic boundary conditions are assumed (i.e. wrap around).
Alternatively, you can request reflective boundary conditions using
the C<Boundary> option:

  {Boundary => 'reflect'} # case in 'reflect' doesn't matter

The convolution is performed along the first dimension. To apply it across
another dimension use the slicing routines, e.g.

  $b = $a->mv(2,0)->conv1d($kernel)->mv(0,2); # along third dim

This function is useful for threaded filtering of 1D signals.

L<rfftwconv|PDL::FFTW/rfftwconv>

=for bad

WARNING: C<conv1d> processes bad values in its inputs as
the numeric value of C<< $pdl->badvalue >> so it is not
recommended for processing pdls with bad values in them
unless special care is taken.



=for bad

conv1d ignores the bad-value flag of the input piddles.
It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.

=head2 in

=for sig

  Signature: (a(); b(n); [o] c())


=for ref

test if a is in the set of values b

=for example

   $goodmsk = $labels->in($goodlabels);
   print pdl(3,1,4,6,2)->in(pdl(2,3,3));
  [1 0 0 0 1]

C<in> is akin to the I<is an element of> of set theory. In principle,
PDL threading could be used to achieve its functionality by using a
construct like

   $msk = ($labels->dummy(0) == $goodlabels)->orover;

However, C<in> doesn't create a (potentially large) intermediate
and is generally faster.



=for bad

in does not process bad values.
It will set the bad-value flag of all output piddles if the flag is set for any of the input piddles.


=cut






*in = \&PDL::in;




=head2 uniq

=for ref

return all unique elements of a piddle

The unique elements are returned in ascending order.

=for example

  PDL> p pdl(2,2,2,4,0,-1,6,6)->uniq
  [-1 0 2 4 6]     # 0 is returned 2nd (sorted order)

  PDL> p pdl(2,2,2,4,nan,-1,6,6)->uniq
  [-1 2 4 6 nan]   # NaN value is returned at end

Note: The returned pdl is 1D; any structure of the input
piddle is lost.  C<NaN> values are never compare equal to
any other values, even themselves.  As a result, they are
always unique. C<uniq> returns the NaN values at the end
of the result piddle.  This follows the Matlab usage.

See L<uniqind|uniqind> if you need the indices of the unique
elements rather than the values.

=cut




=for bad

Bad values are not considered unique by uniq and are ignored.

   # make sure we return something if there is only one value
   my $answ = $nans;  # NaN values always uniq
   if ( $uniq->nelem > 0 ) {
      $answ = $uniq->append($answ);
   } else {
      $answ = ( ($srt->nelem == 0) ?  $srt : PDL::pdl( ref($srt), [$srt->index(0)] ) )->append($answ);
   }
   return $answ;
}




=head2 uniqind

=for ref

Return the indices of all unique elements of a piddle
The order is in the order of the values to be consistent
with uniq. C<NaN> values never compare equal with any
other value and so are always unique.  This follows the
Matlab usage.

=for example

  PDL> p pdl(2,2,2,4,0,-1,6,6)->uniqind
  [5 4 1 3 6]     # the 0 at index 4 is returned 2nd, but...

  PDL> p pdl(2,2,2,4,nan,-1,6,6)->uniqind
  [5 1 3 6 4]     # ...the NaN at index 4 is returned at end


Note: The returned pdl is 1D; any structure of the input
piddle is lost.

See L<uniq|uniq> if you want the unique values instead of the
indices.

=head2 uniqvec

=for ref

Return all unique vectors out of a collection

  NOTE: If any vectors in the input piddle have NaN values
  they are returned at the end of the non-NaN ones.  This is
  because, by definition, NaN values never compare equal with
  any other value.

  NOTE: The current implementation does not sort the vectors
  containing NaN values.

The unique vectors are returned in lexicographically sorted
ascending order. The 0th dimension of the input PDL is treated
as a dimensional index within each vector, and the 1st and any
higher dimensions are taken to run across vectors. The return
value is always 2D; any structure of the input PDL (beyond using
the 0th dimension for vector index) is lost.

See also L<uniq|uniq> for a unique list of scalars; and
L<qsortvec|PDL::Ufunc/qsortvec> for sorting a list of vectors
lexicographcally.

=cut




=for bad

If a vector contains all bad values, it is ignored as in L<uniq|uniq>.
If some of the values are good, it is treated as a normal vector. For
example, [1 2 BAD] and [BAD 2 3] could be returned, but [BAD BAD BAD]
could not.  Vectors containing BAD values will be returned after any
non-NaN and non-BAD containing vectors, followed by the NaN vectors.

=for ref

Calculate useful statistics over a dimension of a piddle

=for usage

  ($mean,$prms,$median,$min,$max,$adev,$rms) = statsover($piddle, $weights);

This utility function calculates various useful
quantities of a piddle. These are:

=over 3

=item * the mean:

  MEAN = sum (x)/ N

with C<N> being the number of elements in x

=item * the population RMS deviation from the mean:

  PRMS = sqrt( sum( (x-mean(x))^2 )/(N-1)

The population deviation is the best-estimate of the deviation
of the population from which a sample is drawn.

=item * the median

The median is the 50th percentile data value.  Median is found by
L<medover|PDL::Ufunc/medover>, so WEIGHTING IS IGNORED FOR THE MEDIAN CALCULATION.

=item * the minimum

=item * the maximum

=item * the average absolute deviation:

  AADEV = sum( abs(x-mean(x)) )/N

=item * RMS deviation from the mean:

  RMS = sqrt(sum( (x-mean(x))^2 )/N)

(also known as the root-mean-square deviation, or the square root of the
variance)

=back

This operator is a projection operator so the calculation
will take place over the final dimension. Thus if the input
is N-dimensional each returned value will be N-1 dimensional,
to calculate the statistics for the entire piddle either
use C<clump(-1)> directly on the piddle or call C<stats>.

=head2 glue

=for usage

  $c = $a->glue(<dim>,$b,...)

=for ref

Glue two or more PDLs together along an arbitrary dimension
(N-D L<append|append>).

Sticks $a, $b, and all following arguments together along the
specified dimension.  All other dimensions must be compatible in the
threading sense.

Glue is permissive, in the sense that every PDL is treated as having an
infinite number of trivial dimensions of order 1 -- so C<< $a->glue(3,$b) >>
works, even if $a and $b are only one dimensional.

If one of the PDLs has no elements, it is ignored.  Likewise, if one
of them is actually the undefined value, it is treated as if it had no
elements.

If the first parameter is a defined perl scalar rather than a pdl,
then it is taken as a dimension along which to glue everything else,
so you can say C<$cube = PDL::glue(3,@image_list);> if you like.

C<glue> is implemented in pdl, using a combination of L<xchg|PDL::Slices/xchg> and
L<append|append>.  It should probably be updated (one day) to a pure PP
function.

Similar functions include L<append|/append> (above), which appends

C<$x> must be sorted, but may be in decreasing or increasing

B<vsearch_sample> returns an index I<I> for each value I<V> of C<$vals> appropriate

I<I> has the following properties:

  x[-1] >= V         : I = $x->nelem - 1



=back




If all elements of C<$x> are equal, I<< I = $x->nelem - 1 >>.

If C<$x> contains duplicated elements, I<I> is the index of the
leftmost (by position in array) duplicate if I<V> matches.

=for example

This function is useful e.g. when you have a list of probabilities
for events and want to generate indices to events:

 $a = pdl(.01,.86,.93,1); # Barnsley IFS probabilities cumulatively
 $b = random 20;
 $c = vsearch_sample($b, $a); # Now, $c will have the appropriate distr.

It is possible to use the L<cumusumover|PDL::Ufunc/cumusumover>

If all elements of C<$x> are equal,

routine for 1D linear interpolation

=for usage

 ( $yi, $err ) = interpolate($xi, $x, $y)

Given a set of points C<($x,$y)>, use linear interpolation
to find the values C<$yi> at a set of points C<$xi>.

C<interpolate> uses a binary search to find the suspects, er...,
interpolation indices and therefore abscissas (ie C<$x>)
have to be I<strictly> ordered (increasing or decreasing).
For interpolation at lots of
closely spaced abscissas an approach that uses the last index found as
a start for the next search can be faster (compare Numerical Recipes
C<hunt> routine). Feel free to implement that on top of the binary
search if you like. For out of bounds values it just does a linear
extrapolation and sets the corresponding element of C<$err> to 1,
which is otherwise 0.

See also L<interpol|/interpol>, which uses the same routine,
differing only in the handling of extrapolation - an error message
is printed rather than returning an error piddle.

=head2 interpND

=for ref

Interpolate values from an N-D piddle, with switchable method

=for example

  $source = 10*xvals(10,10) + yvals(10,10);
  $index = pdl([[2.2,3.5],[4.1,5.0]],[[6.0,7.4],[8,9]]);
  print $source->interpND( $index );

InterpND acts like L<indexND|PDL::Slices/indexND>,
collapsing C<$index> by lookup
into C<$source>; but it does interpolation rather than direct sampling.
The interpolation method and boundary condition are switchable via
an options hash.

By default, linear or sample interpolation is used, with constant
value outside the boundaries of the source pdl.  No dataflow occurs,
because in general the output is computed rather than indexed.

All the interpolation methods treat the pixels as value-centered, so
the C<sample> method will return C<< $a->(0) >> for coordinate values on
the set [-0.5,0.5), and all methods will return C<< $a->(1) >> for
a coordinate value of exactly 1.


Recognized options:

=over 3

=item method

Values can be:

=over 3

=item * 0, s, sample, Sample (default for integer source types)

The nearest value is taken. Pixels are regarded as centered on their
respective integer coordinates (no offset from the linear case).

=item * 1, l, linear, Linear (default for floating point source types)

The values are N-linearly interpolated from an N-dimensional cube of size 2.

=item * 3, c, cube, cubic, Cubic

The values are interpolated using a local cubic fit to the data.  The
fit is constrained to match the original data and its derivative at the
data points.  The second derivative of the fit is not continuous at the
data points.  Multidimensional datasets are interpolated by the
successive-collapse method.

(Note that the constraint on the first derivative causes a small amount
of ringing around sudden features such as step functions).

=item * f, fft, fourier, Fourier

The source is Fourier transformed, and the interpolated values are
explicitly calculated from the coefficients.  The boundary condition
option is ignored -- periodic boundaries are imposed.

If you pass in the option "fft", and it is a list (ARRAY) ref, then it
is a stash for the magnitude and phase of the source FFT.  If the list
has two elements then they are taken as already computed; otherwise
they are calculated and put in the stash.

=back

=item b, bound, boundary, Boundary

This option is passed unmodified into L<indexND|PDL::Slices/indexND>,
which is used as the indexing engine for the interpolation.
Some current allowed values are 'extend', 'periodic', 'truncate', and 'mirror'
(default is 'truncate').

=item bad

contains the fill value used for 'truncate' boundary.  (default 0)

=item fft

data, for the FFT method.

If you want to index into the original mask or a similar piddle

=for ref

Use a mask to select values from one or more data PDLs

C<where> accepts one or more data piddles and a mask piddle.  It
returns a list of output piddles, corresponding to the input data
piddles.  Each output piddle is a 1-dimensional list of values in its
corresponding data piddle. The values are drawn from locations where
the mask is nonzero.

The output PDLs are still connected to the original data PDLs, for the
purpose of dataflow.

C<where> combines the functionality of L<which|/which> and L<index|PDL::Slices/index>
into a single operation.

BUGS:

While C<where> works OK for most N-dimensional cases, it does not
thread properly over (for example) the (N+1)th dimension in data
that is compared to an N-dimensional mask.  Use C<whereND> for that.

=for usage

 $i = $x->where($x+5 > 0); # $i contains those elements of $x
                           # where mask ($x+5 > 0) is 1
 $i .= -5;  # Set those elements (of $x) to -5. Together, these
            # commands clamp $x to a maximum of -5.

It is also possible to use the same mask for several piddles with
the same call:

 ($i,$j,$k) = where($x,$y,$z, $x+5>0);

Note: C<$i> is always 1-D, even if C<$x> is E<gt>1-D.

WARNING: The first argument
(the values) and the second argument (the mask) currently have to have
the exact same dimensions (or horrible things happen). You *cannot*
thread over a smaller mask, for example.

Just as with C<where>, you can use the returned value in an
assignment. That means that both of these examples are valid:

  # Used to create a new slice stored in $sdat4:
  $sdat4 = $data->whereND($mask4);
  $sdat4 .= 0;
  # Used in lvalue context:
  $data->whereND($mask4) .= 0;

=head2 whichND

=for ref

Return the coordinates of non-zero values in a mask.

=for usage

WhichND returns the N-dimensional coordinates of each nonzero value in
a mask PDL with any number of dimensions.  The returned values arrive
as an array-of-vectors suitable for use in
L<indexND|PDL::Slices/indexND> or L<range|PDL::Slices/range>.

 $coords = whichND($mask);

returns a PDL containing the coordinates of the elements that are non-zero
in C<$mask>, suitable for use in indexND.  The 0th dimension contains the
full coordinate listing of each point; the 1st dimension lists all the points.
For example, if $mask has rank 4 and 100 matching elements, then $coords has
dimension 4x100.

If no such elements exist, then whichND returns a structured empty PDL:
an Nx0 PDL that contains no values (but matches, threading-wise, with
the vectors that would be produced if such elements existed).

DEPRECATED BEHAVIOR IN LIST CONTEXT:

whichND once delivered different values in list context than in scalar
context, for historical reasons.  In list context, it returned the
coordinates transposed, as a collection of 1-PDLs (one per dimension)
in a list.  This usage is deprecated in PDL 2.4.10, and will cause a
warning to be issued every time it is encountered.  To avoid the
warning, you can set the global variable "$PDL::whichND" to 's' to
get scalar behavior in all contexts, or to 'l' to get list behavior in
list context.

In later versions of PDL, the deprecated behavior will disappear.  Deprecated
list context whichND expressions can be replaced with:

    @list = $a->whichND->mv(0,-1)->dog;


SEE ALSO:

L<which|/which> finds coordinates of nonzero values in a 1-D mask.

L<where|/where> extracts values from a data PDL that are associated
with nonzero values in a mask PDL.

=for example

 pdl> $a=sequence(10,10,3,4)
 pdl> ($x, $y, $z, $w)=whichND($a == 203); p $x, $y, $z, $w
 [3] [0] [2] [0]
 pdl> print $a->at(list(cat($x,$y,$z,$w)))
 203

=head2 setops

=for ref

Implements simple set operations like union and intersection

=for usage

   Usage: $set = setops($a, <OPERATOR>, $b);

The operator can be C<OR>, C<XOR> or C<AND>. This is then applied
to C<$a> viewed as a set and C<$b> viewed as a set. Set theory says
that a set may not have two or more identical elements, but setops
takes care of this for you, so C<$a=pdl(1,1,2)> is OK. The functioning
is as follows:

=over

=item C<OR>

The resulting vector will contain the elements that are either in C<$a>
I<or> in C<$b> or both. This is the union in set operation terms

=item C<XOR>

The resulting vector will contain the elements that are either in C<$a>
or C<$b>, but not in both. This is

     Union($a, $b) - Intersection($a, $b)

in set operation terms.

=item C<AND>

The resulting vector will contain the intersection of C<$a> and C<$b>, so
the elements that are in both C<$a> and C<$b>. Note that for convenience
this operation is also aliased to L<intersect|intersect>.

=back

It should be emphasized that these routines are used when one or both of
the sets C<$a>, C<$b> are hard to calculate or that you get from a separate
subroutine.

Finally IDL users might be familiar with Craig Markwardt's C<cmset_op.pro>
routine which has inspired this routine although it was written independently
However the present routine has a few less options (but see the examples)

=for example

You will very often use these functions on an index vector, so that is
what we will show here. We will in fact something slightly silly. First
we will find all squares that are also cubes below 10000.

Create a sequence vector:

  pdl> $x = sequence(10000)

Find all odd and even elements:

  pdl> ($even, $odd) = which_both( ($x % 2) == 0)

Find all squares

  pdl> $squares= which(ceil(sqrt($x)) == floor(sqrt($x)))

Find all cubes (being careful with roundoff error!)

  pdl> $cubes= which(ceil($x**(1.0/3.0)) == floor($x**(1.0/3.0)+1e-6))

Then find all squares that are cubes:

  pdl> $both = setops($squares, 'AND', $cubes)

And print these (assumes that C<PDL::NiceSlice> is loaded!)

  pdl> p $x($both)
   [0 1 64 729 4096]

Then find all numbers that are either cubes or squares, but not both:

  pdl> $cube_xor_square = setops($squares, 'XOR', $cubes)

  pdl> p $cube_xor_square->nelem()
   112

So there are a total of 112 of these!

Finally find all odd squares:

  pdl> $odd_squares = setops($squares, 'AND', $odd)


Another common occurrence is to want to get all objects that are
in C<$a> and in the complement of C<$b>. But it is almost always best
to create the complement explicitly since the universe that both are
taken from is not known. Thus use L<which_both|which_both> if possible
to keep track of complements.

If this is impossible the best approach is to make a temporary:

This creates an index vector the size of the universe of the sets and
set all elements in C<$b> to 0

  pdl> $tmp = ones($n_universe); $tmp($b) .= 0;

This then finds the complement of C<$b>

  pdl> $C_b = which($tmp == 1);

and this does the final selection:

  pdl> $set = setops($a, 'AND', $C_b)

=cut

*setops = \&PDL::setops;
