Our package allows:
- Simulating directly from the model
- Simulating from the posterior distribution of states given the observations
- Calculating the (Viterbi) sequence of states with the largest posterior probability
- Calculating the Forward-Backward algorithm, and in particular likelihood of the data and the posterior probability (given all observations) of the marginal and joint state probabilities as well as additional HMM-related procedures.
The running time and space requirement of all procedures is linear in the number of possible states. This package is highly modular, providing the user with maximal flexibility for developing downstream applications.
Required Python 3+.
Simply download the
factorial_hmm.py file, add its location to
sys.path.append(path_to_dir)), and import the library.
