A python package for functional data analysis using the square root slope framework and curves using the square root velocity framework which performs pair-wise and group-wise alignment as well as modeling using functional component analysis and regression.


v2.2.10 is on pip and can be installed using

pip install fdasrsf

or conda

conda install -c conda-forge fdasrsf

To install the most up to date version on github

python install

please see requirements for a list of packages fdasrsf depends on
