constant_sparse_pwc_operator

Graph.constant_sparse_pwc_operator(duration, operator)

Create a constant sparse piecewise-constant operator over a specified duration.

Parameters
  • duration (float) – The duration \(\tau\) for the resulting piecewise-constant operator.

  • operator (numpy.ndarray or scipy.sparse.spmatrix) – The sparse operator \(A\). If you pass a NumPy array then it will be internally converted into a sparse array.

Returns

The constant operator \(t\mapsto A\) (for \(0\leq t\leq\tau\)).

Return type

SparsePwc

Examples

Create a constant sparse PWC operator.

>>> from scipy.sparse import coo_matrix
>>> sigma_x = np.array([[0, 1], [1, 0]])
>>> graph.constant_sparse_pwc_operator(duration=0.1, operator=coo_matrix(sigma_x))
