Can't use a pulled distribution since the v1.1b0

0 votes


Since the v1.1b0 I can't use a pulled distribution. For example I can't compute the grad_log_x of a pulled distribution as in the test code below. I use python 3.6.1.

Best regards,


import logging
import warnings
import numpy as np
import scipy.stats as stats
import TransportMaps as TM
import TransportMaps.Maps as MAPS

import TransportMaps.Distributions as DIST

class GumbelDistribution(DIST.Distribution):
    def __init__(self, mu, beta):
        super(GumbelDistribution,self).__init__(1) = mu
        self.beta = beta
        self.dist = stats.gumbel_r(loc=mu, scale=beta)
    def pdf(self, x, params=None):
        return self.dist.pdf(x).flatten()
    def log_pdf(self, x, params=None):
        return self.dist.logpdf(x).flatten()
    def grad_x_log_pdf(self, x, params=None):
        m =
        b = self.beta
        z = (x-m)/b
        return (np.exp(-z)-1.)/b
    def hess_x_log_pdf(self, x, params=None):
        m =
        b = self.beta
        z = (x-m)/b
        return (-np.exp(-z)/b**2.)[:,:,np.newaxis]

mu = -63.
beta = 3.
pi = GumbelDistribution(mu,beta)


mu = np.array([-60])
sigma = np.array([[8]])

# Linear map
L = MAPS.LinearTransportMap(mu, sigma)

pull_L_pi = DIST.PullBackTransportMapDistribution(L,pi)

Hi Paul,

yes, I'm aware of the bug in version 1.1b0. Try to update to 1.1b2

I run the code on this version and it was working ok.
