espei.error_functions.context module

Convenience function to create a context for the built in error functions

espei.error_functions.context.setup_context(dbf, datasets, symbols_to_fit=None, data_weights=None, make_callables=True)

Set up a context dictionary for calculating error.

Parameters:
  • dbf (Database) – A pycalphad Database that will be fit
  • datasets (PickleableTinyDB) – A database of single- and multi-phase data to fit
  • symbols_to_fit (list of str) – List of symbols in the Database that will be fit. If None (default) are passed, then all parameters prefixed with VV followed by a number, e.g. VV0001 will be fit.

Notes

A copy of the Database is made and used in the context. To commit changes back to the original database, the dbf.symbols.update method should be used.

espei.error_functions.non_equilibrium_thermochemical_error module

Calculate error due to thermochemical quantities: heat capacity, entropy, enthalpy.

espei.error_functions.non_equilibrium_thermochemical_error.calculate_non_equilibrium_thermochemical_probability(dbf, thermochemical_data, parameters=None)

Calculate the weighted single phase error in the Database

Parameters:
  • dbf (pycalphad.Database) – Database to consider
  • thermochemical_data (list) – List of thermochemical data dicts
  • parameters (np.ndarray) – Array of parameters to calculate the error with.
Returns:

A single float of the residual sum of square errors

Return type:

float

Notes

There are different single phase values, HM_MIX, SM_FORM, CP_FORM, etc. Each of these have different units and the error cannot be compared directly. To normalize all of the errors, a normalization factor must be used. Equation 2.59 and 2.60 in Lukas, Fries, and Sundman “Computational Thermodynamics” shows how this can be considered. Each type of error will be weighted by the reciprocal of the estimated uncertainty in the measured value and conditions. The weighting factor is calculated by $ p_i = (Delta L_i)^{-1} $ where $ Delta L_i $ is the uncertainty in the measurement. We will neglect the uncertainty for quantities such as temperature, assuming they are small.

espei.error_functions.non_equilibrium_thermochemical_error.calculate_points_array(phase_constituents, configuration, occupancies=None)

Calculate the points array to use in pycalphad calculate calls.

Converts the configuration data (and occupancies for mixing data) into the points array by looking up the indices in the active phase constituents.

Parameters:
  • phase_constituents (list) – List of active constituents in a phase
  • configuration (list) – List of the sublattice configuration
  • occupancies (list) – List of sublattice occupancies. Required for mixing sublattices, otherwise takes no effect.
Returns:

Return type:

Notes

Errors will be raised if components in the configuration are not in the corresponding phase constituents sublattice.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error module

Calculate driving_force due to ZPF tielines.

The general approach is similar to the PanOptimizer rough search method.

  1. With all phases active, calculate the chemical potentials of the tieline endpoints via equilibrium calls. Done in estimate_hyperplane.
  2. Calculate the target chemical potentials, which are the average chemical potentials of all of the current chemical potentials at the tieline endpoints.
  3. Calculate the current chemical potentials of the desired single phases
  4. The error is the difference between these chemical potentials

There’s some special handling for tieline endpoints where we do not know the composition conditions to calculate chemical potentials at.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error.calculate_zpf_error(zpf_data: Sequence[Dict[str, Any]], parameters: <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'> = None, data_weight: int = 1.0, approximate_equilibrium: bool = False)

Calculate error due to phase equilibria data

zpf_data : list
Datasets that contain single phase data
phase_models : dict
Phase models to pass to pycalphad calculations
parameters : np.ndarray
Array of parameters to calculate the error with.
callables : dict
Callables to pass to pycalphad
data_weight : float
Scaling factor for the standard deviation of the measurement of a tieline which has units J/mol. The standard deviation is 1000 J/mol and the scaling factor defaults to 1.0.
approximate_equilibrium : bool
Whether or not to use an approximate version of equilibrium that does not refine the solution and uses starting_point instead.
Returns:Log probability of ZPF error
Return type:float

Notes

The physical picture of the standard deviation is that we’ve measured a ZPF line. That line corresponds to some equilibrium chemical potentials. The standard deviation is the standard deviation of those ‘measured’ chemical potentials.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error.driving_force_to_hyperplane(target_hyperplane_chempots: <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'>, comps: Sequence[str], phase_region: espei.error_functions.zpf_error.PhaseRegion, vertex_idx: int, parameters: <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'>, approximate_equilibrium: bool = False) → float

Calculate the integrated driving force between the current hyperplane and target hyperplane.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error.estimate_hyperplane(phase_region: espei.error_functions.zpf_error.PhaseRegion, parameters: <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'>, approximate_equilibrium: bool = False) → <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'>

Calculate the chemical potentials for the target hyperplane, one vertex at a time

Notes

This takes just one set of phase equilibria, a phase region, e.g. a dataset point of [[‘FCC_A1’, [‘CU’], [0.1]], [‘LAVES_C15’, [‘CU’], [0.3]]] and calculates the chemical potentials given all the phases possible at the given compositions. Then the average chemical potentials of each end point are taken as the target hyperplane for the given equilibria.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error.extract_conditions(all_conditions: Dict[<Mock name='mock.variables.StateVariable' id='139944577981184'>, <Mock name='mock.ndarray' id='139944577980288'>], idx: int) → Dict[<Mock name='mock.variables.StateVariable' id='139944577981184'>, float]

Conditions are either scalar or 1d arrays for the conditions in the entire dataset. This function extracts the condition corresponding to the current region, based on the index in the 1d condition array.

espei.error_functions.zpf_error.extract_phases_comps(phase_region)
