- biogeme.models.boxcox(x, ell)[source]
Box-Cox transform
\[B(x, \ell) = \frac{x^{\ell}-1}{\ell}.\]It has the property that
\[\lim_{\ell \to 0} B(x,\ell)=\log(x).\]To avoid numerical difficulties, if \(\ell < 10^{-5}\), the McLaurin approximation is used:
\[\log(x) + \ell \log(x)^2 + \frac{1}{6} \ell^2 \log(x)^3 + \frac{1}{24} \ell^3 \log(x)^4.\]- Parameters:
x (biogeme.expressions.expr.Expression) – a variable to transform.

- biogeme.models.piecewiseFormula(variable, thresholds, betas=None)[source]
Generate the formula for a piecewise linear specification.
If there are K thresholds, K-1 variables are generated. The first and last thresholds can be defined as None, corresponding to \(-\infty\) and \(+\infty\), respectively. If \(t\) is the variable of interest, for each interval \([a:a+b[\), we define a variable defined as:
\[\begin{split}x_{Ti} =\left\{ \begin{array}{ll} 0 & \text{if } t < a \\ t-a & \text{if } a \leq t < a+b \\ b & \text{otherwise} \end{array}\right. \;\;\;x_{Ti} = \max(0, \min(t-a, b))\end{split}\]New variables and new parameters are automatically created to obtain the specification
\[\sum_{i=1}^{K-1} \beta_i x_{Ti}\]- Parameters:
variable (string) – name of the variable for which we need the piecewise linear transform.
thresholds (list(float)) – list of thresholds
betas (list(biogeme.expresssions.Beta)) – list of beta parameters to be used in the specification. The number of entries should be the number of thresholds, minus one. If None, for each interval, the parameter Beta(‘beta_VAR_interval’,0, None, None, 0) is used, where var is the name of the variable. Default: none.
- Returns:
expression of the piecewise linear specification.
- Return type:
biogeme.expressions.expr.Expression
- Raises:
BiogemeError – if the thresholds are not defined properly, which means that only the first and the last threshold can be set to None.
BiogemeError – if the length of list
initialexpr.Betas
is not equal to the length ofthresholds
minus one.
