RDF define new column via Numba


I want to mingle Numba, RDF and numpy to add a column to my RDataFrame.

This is a minimal snippet, where I define the function to be jitted and test it via the command line.

import ROOT
import numpy as np

bins = np.linspace(1, 10, 10)
weights = bins

@ROOT.Numba.Declare(['float'], 'float')
def GetWeight(pt):
    idx = np.sum(pt>bins)
    return weights[idx-1] if idx>0 else 1.


so far so good

(float) 1.00000f
Out[1]: 1

But when I try to use this for real and add it to my RDF,

tree = ROOT.RDataFrame(4).Define('x', '(float)rdfentry_')
tree.Define('weight', 'Numba::GetWeight(x)')

histo = tree.Histo1D(ROOT.RDF.TH1DModel('pt', '', len(bins)-1, bins), 'x', 'weight')

it fails

TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)

Any suggestions?


ROOT Version: 6.22/06
Platform: linuxx8664gcc
Compiler: x86_64-conda-linux-gnu-c++

ooops, it’s totally my fault.


tree.Define('weight', 'Numba::GetWeight(x)')

should’ve been

tree = tree.Define('weight', 'Numba::GetWeight(x)')

sorry, I guess the thread can be closed.

Hi Riccardo,
the problem (at least this problem :smiley: ) does not seem to be related to numba but to the construction of the TH1DModel object.

You should see that if you put ROOT.RDF.TH1DModel('pt', '', len(bins)-1, bins) on its on line it fails. In fact it doesn’t have a constructor with that signature: ROOT: ROOT::RDF::TH1DModel Class Reference .

Does fixing that fix everything?

Hi Enrico,
the problem was cause by the dumb mistake I reported above.
With that fix everything works (the construction of TH1DModel seems ok, or at least it does what it should without complaining :wink: )
