[docs]class Spline(BaseGridder):
r"""
Biharmonic spline interpolation using Green's functions.
This gridder assumes Cartesian coordinates.
Implements the 2D splines of [Sandwell1987]_. The Green's function for the spline
corresponds to the elastic deflection of a thin sheet subject to a vertical force.
For an observation point at the origin and a force at the coordinates given by the
vector :math:`\mathbf{x}`, the Green's function is:
.. math::
g(\mathbf{x}) = \|\mathbf{x}\|^2 \left(\log \|\mathbf{x}\| - 1\right)
In practice, this function is not defined for data points that coincide with a
force. To prevent this, a fudge factor is added to :math:`\|\mathbf{x}\|`.
The interpolation is performed by estimating forces that produce deflections that
fit the observed data (using least-squares). Then, the interpolated points can be
evaluated at any location.
By default, the forces will be placed at the same points as the input data given to
:meth:`~verde.Spline.fit`. This configuration provides an exact solution on top of
the data points. However, this solution can be unstable for certain configurations
of data points.
Approximate (and more stable) solutions can be obtained by applying damping
regularization to smooth the estimated forces (and interpolated values) or by not
using the data coordinates to position the forces (use the *force_coords*
parameter).
Data weights can be used during fitting but only have an any effect when using the
approximate solutions.
Before fitting, the Jacobian (design, sensitivity, feature, etc) matrix for the
spline is normalized using :class:`sklearn.preprocessing.StandardScaler` without
centering the mean so that the transformation can be undone in the estimated forces.
Parameters
----------
mindist : float
A minimum distance between the point forces and data points. Needed because the
Green's functions are singular when forces and data points coincide. Acts as a
fudge factor.
damping : None or float
The positive damping regularization parameter. Controls how much smoothness is
imposed on the estimated forces. If None, no regularization is used.
force_coords : None or tuple of arrays
The easting and northing coordinates of the point forces. If None (default),
then will be set to the data coordinates the first time
:meth:`~verde.Spline.fit` is called.
engine : str
Computation engine for the Jacobian matrix and prediction. Can be ``'auto'``,
``'numba'``, or ``'numpy'``. If ``'auto'``, will use numba if it is installed or
numpy otherwise. The numba version is multi-threaded and usually faster, which
makes fitting and predicting faster.
Attributes
----------
force_ : array
The estimated forces that fit the observed data.
region_ : tuple
The boundaries (``[W, E, S, N]``) of the data used to fit the
interpolator. Used as the default region for the
:meth:`~verde.Spline.grid` and :meth:`~verde.Spline.scatter` methods.
