Online Processing

Online processing computation mode assumes that data arrives in blocks \(i = 1, 2, 3, \ldots \text{nblocks}\).

Computation of low order moments in the online processing mode follows the general computation schema for online processing described in Algorithms.

Algorithm Input

The low order moments algorithm accepts the input described below. Pass the Input ID as a parameter to the methods that provide input for your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.

Input ID

Input

data

Pointer to the numeric table of size \(n_i \times p\) that represents the current data block.

While the input for defaultDense, singlePassDense, or sumDense method can be an object of any class derived from NumericTable, the input for fastCSR, singlePassCSR, or sumCSR method can only be an object of the CSRNumericTable class.

Algorithm Parameters

The low order moments algorithm has the following parameters:

Parameter

Default Valude

Description

algorithmFPType

float

The floating-point type that the algorithm uses for intermediate computations. Can be float or double.

method

defaultDense

Available methods for computation of low order moments:

defaultDense

default performance-oriented method

singlePassDense

implementation of the single-pass algorithm proposed by D.H.D. West

sumDense

implementation of the algorithm in the cases where the basic statistics associated with the numeric table are pre-computed sums; returns an error if pre-computed sums are not defined

fastCSR

performance-oriented method for CSR numeric tables

singlePassCSR

implementation of the single-pass algorithm proposed by D.H.D. West; optimized for CSR numeric tables

sumCSR

implementation of the algorithm in the cases where the basic statistics associated with the numeric table are pre-computed sums; optimized for CSR numeric tables; returns an error if pre-computed sums are not defined

initializationProcedure

Not applicable

The procedure for setting initial parameters of the algorithm in the online processing mode.

By default, the algorithm does the following initialization:

  • Sets nObservations, partialSum, and partialSumSquares to zero.

  • Sets partialMinimum and partialMaximum to the first row of the input table.

estimatesAll

Estimates to be computed by the algorithm:

  • estimatesAll - all supported moments

  • estimatesMinMax - minimum and maximum

  • estimatesMeanVariance - mean and variance

Partial Results

The low order moments algorithm in the online processing mode calculates partial results described below. Pass the Result ID as a parameter to the methods that access the results of your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.

Result ID

Result

nObservations

Pointer to the \(1 \times 1\) numeric table that contains the number of rows processed so far.

By default, this result is an object of the HomogenNumericTable class, but you can define the result as an object of any class derived from NumericTable except CSRNumericTable.

Partial characteristics computed so far, each in a \(1 \times p\) numeric table. By default, each table is an object of the HomogenNumericTable class, but you can define the tables as objects of any class derived from NumericTable except PackedSymmetricMatrix, PackedTriangularMatrix, and CSRNumericTable.

Note

Each result is a pointer to the \(1 \times p\) numeric table that contains characteristics for each feature in the data set. By default, the tables are objects of the HomogenNumericTable class, but you can define each table as an object of any class derived from NumericTable except PackedSymmetricMatrix, PackedTriangularMatrix, and CSRNumericTable.
