CavityTools

Coverage

This small package contains:

  • cavity! and cavity: Functions to compute the N all-but-one operations between N elements in time O(N). The operation is arbitrary and needs only to be associative. This is equivalent to computing [reduce(op, (source[j] for j in eachindex(source) if i != j); init) for i in eachindex(source)] which however would need N*(N-1) evaluations of op. If op is commutative with exact inverse invop, you could obtain the same result of cavity(source, op, init), also in time O(N), with full=reduce(op, source; init); [op(invop(x), full) for x in source].

  • Accumulator: A data structure keeping a live-updatable cumsum. Updating or retrieving one element costs O(log(N)), computing the total sum costs O(1). searchsortedfirst(a::Accumulator, v) is also implemented, taking also O(log(N)) time.

  • ExponentialQueue: Accumulator plus index tracking, intended for sampling in a Gillespie-like scheme. Indices are in 1:N.
