    incrmeanstdev

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Compute an arithmetic mean and a corrected sample standard deviation incrementally.

    The arithmetic mean is defined as

    Equation for the arithmetic mean.

    and the corrected sample standard deviation is defined as

    Equation for the corrected sample standard deviation.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/stats-incr-meanstdev

    Usage

    var incrmeanstdev = require( '@stdlib/stats-incr-meanstdev' );

    incrmeanstdev( [out] )

    Returns an accumulator function which incrementally computes an arithmetic mean and corrected sample standard deviation.

    var accumulator = incrmeanstdev();

    By default, the returned accumulator function returns the accumulated values as a two-element array. To avoid unnecessary memory allocation, the function supports providing an output (destination) object.

    var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
    
    var accumulator = incrmeanstdev( new Float64Array( 2 ) );

    accumulator( [x] )

    If provided an input value x, the accumulator function returns updated accumulated values. If not provided an input value x, the accumulator function returns the current accumulated values.

    var accumulator = incrmeanstdev();
    
    var ms = accumulator();
    // returns null
    
    ms = accumulator( 2.0 );
    // returns [ 2.0, 0.0 ]
    
    ms = accumulator( 1.0 );
    // returns [ 1.5, ~0.71 ]
    
    ms = accumulator( 3.0 );
    // returns [ 2.0, 1.0 ]
    
    ms = accumulator( -7.0 );
    // returns [ -0.25, ~4.57 ]
    
    ms = accumulator( -5.0 );
    // returns [ -1.2, ~4.49 ]
    
    ms = accumulator();
    // returns [ -1.2, ~4.49 ]

    Notes

    • Input values are not type checked. If provided NaN, the accumulated values are equal to NaN for all future invocations. If non-numeric inputs are possible, you are advised to type check and handle accordingly before passing the value to the accumulator function.

    Examples

    var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
    var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
    var ArrayBuffer = require( '@stdlib/array-buffer' );
    var incrmeanstdev = require( '@stdlib/stats-incr-meanstdev' );
    
    var offset;
    var acc;
    var buf;
    var out;
    var ms;
    var N;
    var v;
    var i;
    var j;
    
    // Define the number of accumulators:
    N = 5;
    
    // Create an array buffer for storing accumulator output:
    buf = new ArrayBuffer( N*2*8 ); // 8 bytes per element
    
    // Initialize accumulators:
    acc = [];
    for ( i = 0; i < N; i++ ) {
        // Compute the byte offset:
        offset = i * 2 * 8; // stride=2, bytes_per_element=8
    
        // Create a new view for storing accumulated values:
        out = new Float64Array( buf, offset, 2 );
    
        // Initialize an accumulator which will write results to the view:
        acc.push( incrmeanstdev( out ) );
    }
    
    // Simulate data and update the sample means and standard deviations...
    for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
        for ( j = 0; j < N; j++ ) {
            v = randu() * 100.0 * (j+1);
            acc[ j ]( v );
        }
    }
    
    // Print the final results:
    console.log( 'Mean\tStDev' );
    for ( i = 0; i < N; i++ ) {
        ms = acc[ i ]();
        console.log( '%d\t%d', ms[ 0 ].toFixed( 3 ), ms[ 1 ].toFixed( 3 ) );
    }
