landlab.ca.celllab_cts module

Landlab’s Continuous-Time Stochastic (CTS) cellular automata modeling package.

Overview

A CellLab CTS model implements a particular type of cellular automaton (CA): a continuous-time stochastic CA. The approach is based on that of Narteau et al. (2002, 2009) and Rozier and Narteau (2014). Like a normal CA, the domain consists of a lattice of cells, each of which has a discrete state. Unlike a conventional CA, the updating process is stochastic, and takes place in continuous rather than discrete time. Any given pair (or “doublet”) of adjacent cell states has a certain specified probability of transition to a different pair of states. The transition probability is given in the form of an average transition rate, \(\lambda\) (with dimensions of 1/T); the actual time of transition is a random variable drawn from an exponential probability distribution with mean \(1/\lambda\).

Subclasses

Landlab provides for several different lattice and connection types:

  • RasterCTS: regular raster grid with transitions between horizontal and vertical cell pairs
  • OrientedRasterCTS: like a RasterLCA, but different transition rates can be assigned to vertical and horizontal pairs. This property of orientation can be used, for example, to implement rules representing gravitational attraction, or flow of a fluid with a particular direction.
  • RasterD8CTS: like a RasterLCA, but includes diagonal as well as vertical and horizontal cell pairs.
  • OrientedRasterD8CTS: as above but orientation also matters.
  • HexCTS: hexagonal grid
  • OrientedHexCTS: hexagonal grid, with transition rates allowed to vary according to orientation.

Encoding of “states”

As in any traditional cellular automaton model, a LandlabCellularAutomaton contains a grid of cells (“nodes” in Landlab parlance), each of which is has a discrete state. States are represented by integers (0, 1, ... N).

In addition, every active link has an orientation code and a link state code. The orientation code represents the orientation of the link in space: is it “vertical” (aligned with the y axis), “horizontal” (aligned with x), or in some other orientation? The number of possible orientations depends on the subclass. The base class has only one orientation code (0) (meaning “orientation doesn’t matter), but this is overridden in some of the subclasses. For example, the OrientedRasterLCA has two orientation codes (0 and 1, for vertical and horizontal), while the OrientedHexLCA has three (representing the three axes in a hex-cell / triagonal grid).

Each active link also has a link state code. The state of a link refers to its particular combination of nodes and its orientation. For example, link state 1 refers to a link in which the tail-node has state 0, the head-node has state 1, and the orientation code is 0. The number of possible link states is equal to R N^2, where R is the number of orientations (1 to 3, depending on the subclass) and N is the number of possible node states. The simplest possible Landlab CA model would have just one orientation code and two possible cell states, so that there are four unique link states. These would be represented by the tuples of (tail-node state, head-node state, orientation) as follows:

link state 0 = (0, 0, 0)
link state 1 = (0, 1, 0)
link state 2 = (1, 0, 0)
link state 3 = (1, 1, 0)

Main data structures

node_state : 1d array (x number of nodes in grid)
Node-based grid of node-state codes. This is the grid of cell (sic) states.
link_state_dict : dictionary
Keys are 3-element tuples that represent the cell-state pairs and orientation code for each possible link type; values are the corresponding link-state codes. Allows you to look up the link-state code corresponding to a particular pair of adjacent nodes with a particular orientation.
node_pair : list (x number of possible link states)
List of 3-element tuples representing all the various link states. Allows you to look up the node states and orientation corresponding to a particular link-state ID.
event_queue : heap of Event objects
Queue containing all future transition events, sorted by time of occurrence (from soonest to latest).
next_update : 1d array (x number of active links)
Time (in the future) at which the link will undergo its next transition. You might notice that the update time for every scheduled transition is also stored in each Event object in the event queue. Why store it twice? Because a scheduled event might be invalidated after the event has been scheduled (because another transition has changed one of a link’s two nodes, for example). The way to tell whether a scheduled event is still valid is to compare its time with the corresponding transition time in the next_update array. If they are different, the event is discarded.
link_orientation : 1d array of ints (x number of active links)
Orientation code for each link.
link_state : 1d array of ints (x number of active links)
State code for each link.
n_xn : 1d array of ints (x number of possible link states)
Number of transitions (“xn” stands for “transition”) from a given link state.
xn_to : 2d array of ints (# possible link states x max. # transitions)
Stores the link-state code(s) to which a particular link state can transition. “max. # transitions” means the maximum number of transitions from a single state. For example, if each link state is associated with one and only one transition, then the maximum is 1, but if there is at least one link state that can have either of two different transitions, then the maximum would be two.
xn_rate : 2d array of floats (# possible link states x max. # transitions)
Rate associated with each link-state transition.

Created GT Sep 2014, starting from link_cap.py.

class CAPlotter(ca, cmap=None)[source]

Bases: object

Handle display of a CellLab-CTS grid.

CAPlotter() constructor keeps a reference to the CA model, and optionally a colormap to be used with plots.

Parameters:

ca : LandlabCellularAutomaton object

Reference to a CA model

cmap : Matplotlib colormap, optional

Colormap to be used in plotting

finalize()[source]

Wrap up plotting.

Wrap up plotting by switching off interactive model and showing the plot.

update_plot()[source]

Plot the current node state grid.

class CellLabCTSModel(model_grid, node_state_dict, transition_list, initial_node_states, prop_data=None, prop_reset_value=None, seed=0)[source]

Bases: object

Link-type (or doublet-type) cellular automaton model.

A CellLabCTSModel implements a link-type (or doublet-type) cellular automaton model. A link connects a pair of cells. Each cell has a state (represented by an integer code), and each link also has a state that is determined by the states of the cell pair.

Parameters:

model_grid : Landlab ModelGrid object

Reference to the model’s grid

node_state_dict : dict

Keys are node-state codes, values are the names associated with these codes

transition_list : list of Transition objects

List of all possible transitions in the model

initial_node_states : array of ints (x number of nodes in grid)

Starting values for node-state grid

prop_data : array (x number of nodes in grid), optional

Array of properties associated with each node/cell

prop_reset_value : number or object, optional

Default or initial value for a node/cell property (e.g., 0.0). Must be same type as prop_data.

Assign link-state code for each link.

Takes lists/arrays of “tail” and “head” node IDs for each link, and a dictionary that associates pairs of node states (represented as a 3-element tuple, comprising the TAIL state, FROM state, and orientation) to link states.

creates:

  • self.link_state : 1D numpy array

Create a dict of link-state to node-state.

Creates a dictionary that can be used as a lookup table to find out which link state corresponds to a particular pair of node states. The dictionary keys are 3-element tuples, each of which represents the state of the TAIL node, the HEAD node, and the orientation of the link. The values are integer codes representing the link state numbers.

Notes

Performance note: making self.node_pair a tuple does not appear to change time to lookup values in update_node_states. Changing it to a 2D array of int actually slows it down.

Get the current state of a link.

Used to determine whether the link state at link link_id has changed due to an independent change in the node-state grid. Returns the current state of the link based on the states of its two end nodes; this can be compared to the entry in self.link_state to determine whether the state has changed.

Parameters:

link_id : int

ID of the active link to test

Returns:

int

New link state code

Notes

Vectorizing this might yield some speed.

Test of new approach using priority queue.

set_node_state_grid(node_states)[source]

Set the grid of node-state codes to node_states.

Sets the grid of node-state codes to node_states. Also checks to make sure node_states is in the proper format, which is to say, it’s a Numpy array of the same length as the number of nodes in the grid.

Creates:

  • self.node_state : 1D array of ints (x number of nodes in grid) The node-state array
Parameters:node_states : 1D array of ints (x number of nodes in grid)

Notes

The node-state array is attached to the grid as a field with the name ‘node_state’.

setup_array_of_orientation_codes()[source]

Create array of active link orientation codes.

Creates and configures an array that contain the orientation code for each active link (and corresponding cell pair).

creates:

  • self.active_link_orientation : 1D numpy array

Notes

The setup varies depending on the type of LCA. The default is non-oriented, in which case we just have an array of zeros. Subclasses will override this method to handle lattices in which orientation matters (for example, vertical vs. horizontal in an OrientedRasterLCA).

setup_transition_data(xn_list)[source]

Create transition data arrays.

PREVIOUS METHOD:

Using the transition list and the number of link states, creates three arrays that collectively contain data on state transitions:

  • n_xn: for each link state, contains the number of transitions out of that state.
  • xn_to: 2D array that records, for each link state and each transition, the new state into which the link transitions.
  • xn_rate: 2D array that records, for each link state and each transition, the rate (1/time) of the transition.
  • xn_propswap: 2D array that indicates, for each link state and each transition, whether that transition is accompanied by a “property” swap, in which the two cells exchange properties (in order to represent a particle moving)

NEW METHOD:

Examples

>>> from landlab import RasterModelGrid
>>> from landlab.ca.celllab_cts import Transition
>>> from landlab.ca.oriented_raster_cts import OrientedRasterCTS

array([ 1.,  2.,  3.,  4.])
update_component_data(new_node_state_array)[source]

Update all component data.

Call this method to update all data held by the component, if, for example, another component or boundary conditions modify the node statuses outside the component between run steps.

This method updates all necessary properties, including both node and link states.

new_node_state_array is the updated list of node states, which must still all be compatible with the state list originally supplied to this component.

Implements a link transition by updating the current state of the link and (if appropriate) choosing the next transition event and pushing it on to the event queue.

Parameters:

link : int

ID of the link to update

new_link_state : int

Code for the new state

current_time : float

Current time in simulation

Implements a link transition by updating the current state of the link and (if appropriate) choosing the next transition event and pushing it on to the event queue.

current_time : float

Current time in simulation

Following an “external” change to the node state grid, updates link states where necessary and creates any needed events.

update_node_states(tail_node, head_node, new_link_state)[source]

Update the states of the two nodes in the given link.

Parameters:

tail_node : int

ID of the tail node of the link (cell pair) in question

head_node : int

ID of the head node of the link (cell pair) in question

(bool, bool)

Flags indicating whether the tail node and head node, respectively, have changed state

class Event(time, link, xn_to, propswap=False, prop_update_fn=None)[source]

Bases: object

Transition event at a link.

Represents a transition event at a link. The transition occurs at a given link and a given time, and it involves a transition into the state xn_to (an integer code representing the new link state; “xn” is shorthand for “transition”).

The class overrides the __lt__ (less than operator) method so that when Event() objects are placed in a PriorityQueue, the earliest event is given the highest priority (i.e., placed at the top of the queue).

Event() constructor sets 3 required properties and one optional property.

Parameters:

time : float

Time at which the event is scheduled to occur

link : int

ID of the link at which event occurs

xn_to : int

New state to which this cell pair (link) will transition

propswap : bool (optional)

Flag: does this event involve an exchange of properties between the two cells?

Examples

>>> from landlab.ca.celllab_cts import Event
>>> e1 = Event( 10.0, 1, 2)
>>> e2 = Event( 2.0, 3, 1)
>>> e1 < e2
False
>>> e2 < e1
True
class Transition(from_state, to_state, rate, name=None, swap_properties=False, prop_update_fn=None)[source]

Bases: object

A transition from one state to another.

Represents a transition from one state (“from_state”) to another (“to_state”) at a link. The transition probability is represented by a rate parameter “rate”, with dimensions of 1/T. The probability distribution of time until the transition event occurs is exponentional with mean 1/rate. The optional name parameter allows the caller to assign a name to any given transition.

Note that from_state and to_state can now be either integer IDs for the standardised ordering of the link states (as before), or tuples explicitly describing the node state at each end, and the orientation. Orientation is 0: horizontal, L-R; 1: vertical, bottom-top. For such a tuple, order is (left/bottom, right/top, orientation).

Transition() constructor sets 3 required properties and 2 optional properties for a transition from one cell pair to another.

Parameters:

from_state : int

Code for the starting state of the cell pair (link)

to_state : int

Code for the new state of the cell pair (link)

rate : float

Average rate at which this transition occurs (dimension of 1/time)

name : string (optional)

Name for this transition

swap_properties : bool (optional)

Flag: should properties be exchanged between the two cells?

landlab.ca.hex_cts module

Simple hexagonal Landlab cellular automaton

This file defines the HexCTS class, which is a sub-class of CellLabCTSModel that implements a simple, non-oriented, hex-grid CA. Like its parent class, HexCTS implements a continuous-time, stochastic, pair-based CA. The hex grid has 3 principal directions, rather than 2 for a raster. Hex grids are often used in CA models because of their symmetry.

Created GT Sep 2014

class HexCTS(model_grid, node_state_dict, transition_list, initial_node_states, prop_data=None, prop_reset_value=None)[source]

Bases: landlab.ca.celllab_cts.CellLabCTSModel

Class HexCTS implements a non-oriented hex-grid CellLab-CTS model.

HexCTS constructor: sets number of orientations to 1 and calls base-class constructor.

Parameters:

model_grid : Landlab ModelGrid object

Reference to the model’s grid

node_state_dict : dict

Keys are node-state codes, values are the names associated with these codes

transition_list : list of Transition objects

List of all possible transitions in the model

initial_node_states : array of ints (x number of nodes in grid)

Starting values for node-state grid

prop_data : array (x number of nodes in grid) (optional)

Array of properties associated with each node/cell

prop_reset_value : number or object, optional

Default or initial value for a node/cell property (e.g., 0.0). Must be same type as prop_data.

Examples

>>> from landlab import HexModelGrid
>>> from landlab.ca.celllab_cts import Transition
>>> from landlab.ca.hex_cts import HexCTS
>>> mg = HexModelGrid(4, 3, 1.0)
>>> nsd = {0 : 'yes', 1 : 'no'}
>>> xnlist = []
>>> xnlist.append(Transition((0,1,0), (1,1,0), 1.0, 'frogging'))

landlab.ca.hex_lattice_tectonicizer module

landlab.ca.landlab_ca module

landlab.ca.little_ca_test module

Test the creation and execution of a CellLab-CTS model.

Tests the creation and execution of a CellLab-CTS model, by creating a simple two-state CA on a small grid.

Created by Greg Tucker, May 2015

main()[source]
setup_transition_list()[source]

Creates and returns a list of Transition() objects to represent state transitions for a biased random walk, in which the rate of downward motion is greater than the rate in the other three directions.

Returns:

xn_list : list of Transition objects

List of objects that encode information about the link-state transitions.

Notes

This doesn’t represent any particular process, but rather is simply used to test the CA code. The transition rules have 0-0 pairs transitioning to 0-1 or 1-0 pairs (50/50 chance) and thence to 1-1 pairs, at which point there are no further transitions.

The states and transitions are as follows:

Pair state      Transition to       Process             Rate (cells/s)
==========      =============       =======             ==============

landlab.ca.oriented_hex_cts module

Simple hexagonal Landlab cellular automaton

This file defines the OrientedHexCTS class, which is a sub-class of CellLabCTSModel that implements a simple, non-oriented, hex-grid CA. Like its parent class, OrientedHexCTS implements a continuous-time, stochastic, pair-based CA. The hex grid has 3 principal directions, rather than 2 for a raster. Hex grids are often used in CA models because of their symmetry.

Created GT Sep 2014

class OrientedHexCTS(model_grid, node_state_dict, transition_list, initial_node_states, prop_data=None, prop_reset_value=None)[source]

Bases: landlab.ca.celllab_cts.CellLabCTSModel

Oriented hex-grid CellLab-CTS model.

OrientedHexCTS constructor: sets number of orientations to 3 and calls base-class constructor.

Parameters:

model_grid : Landlab ModelGrid object

Reference to the model’s grid

node_state_dict : dict

Keys are node-state codes, values are the names associated with these codes

transition_list : list of Transition objects

List of all possible transitions in the model

initial_node_states : array of ints (x number of nodes in grid)

Starting values for node-state grid

prop_data : array (x number of nodes in grid), optional

Array of properties associated with each node/cell

prop_reset_value : number or object, optional

Default or initial value for a node/cell property (e.g., 0.0). Must be same type as prop_data.

Examples

>>> from landlab import HexModelGrid
>>> from landlab.ca.oriented_hex_cts import OrientedHexCTS
>>> from landlab.ca.celllab_cts import Transition
>>> mg = HexModelGrid(4, 3, 1.0)
>>> nsd = {0 : 'yes', 1 : 'no'}
>>> xnlist = []
>>> xnlist.append(Transition((0,1,0), (1,1,0), 1.0, 'frogging'))
>>> nsg = mg.add_zeros('node', 'node_state_grid')
>>> ohcts = OrientedHexCTS(mg, nsd, xnlist, nsg)
setup_array_of_orientation_codes()[source]

Creates and configures an array that contain the orientation code for each active link (and corresponding cell pair).

Notes

Creates:

  • self.active_link_orientation: 1D numpy array

This overrides the method of the same name in celllab_cts.py. If the hex grid is oriented such that one of the 3 axes is vertical (a ‘vertical’ grid), then the three orientations are:

  • 0 = vertical (0 degrees clockwise from vertical)
  • 1 = right and up (60 degrees clockwise from vertical)
  • 2 = right and down (120 degrees clockwise from vertical)

If the grid is oriented with one principal axis horizontal (‘horizontal’ grid), then the orientations are:

  • 0 = up and left (30 degrees counter-clockwise from vertical)
  • 1 = up and right (30 degrees clockwise from vertical)
  • 2 = horizontal (90 degrees clockwise from vertical)

landlab.ca.oriented_raster_cts module

Simple raster Landlab cellular automaton.

Simple raster Landlab cellular automaton, with cell-pair transitions that depend on orientation (vertical or horizontal)

This file defines the OrientedRasterCTS class, which is a sub-class of CellLabCTSModel that implements a simple, oriented, raster-grid CA. Like its parent class, OrientedRasterCTS implements a continuous-time, stochastic, pair-based CA.

prop_data : array (x number of nodes in grid) (optional)

Array of properties associated with each node/cell

prop_reset_value : number or object, optional

Default or initial value for a node/cell property (e.g., 0.0). Must be same type as prop_data.
