Library for GPU-related statistical functions

branch: master
README.rst

GPUStats

gpustats is a PyCUDA-based library implementing functionality similar to that present in scipy.stats. It implements a simple framework for specifying new CUDA kernels and extending existing ones. Here is a (partial) list of target functionality:

  • Probability density functions (pdfs). These are intended to speed up likelihood calculations in particular in Bayesian inference applications, such as in PyMC
  • Random variable generation using CURAND

Requirements

Installation and testing

To install, run:

python setup.py install

If you have nose installed, you may run the test suite by running:

import gpustats
    gpustats.test()

Use

import gpustats

Some development guidelines

  • Use spaces (4 per indent), not tabs
  • Trim whitespace at the end of lines (most text editors will do this for you)
  • PEP8-consistent Python style
