class pylops.Restriction(dims, iava, axis=-1, dtype='float64', inplace=True, name='R')[source]

Restriction (or sampling) operator.

Extract subset of values from input vector at locations iava in forward mode and place those values at locations iava in an otherwise zero vector in adjoint mode.

dims : list or int

Number of samples for each dimension

iava : list or numpy.ndarray

Integer indices of available samples for data selection.

axis : int, optional

New in version 2.0.0.

Axis along which restriction is applied to model.

dtype : str, optional

Type of elements in input array.

inplace : bool, optional

Work inplace (True) or make a new copy (False). By default, data is a reference to the model (in forward) and model is a reference to the data (in adjoint).

name : str, optional

New in version 2.0.0.

Name of operator (to be used by pylops.utils.describe.describe)

Interpolation operator


Extraction (or sampling) of a subset of \(N\) values at locations iava from an input (or model) vector \(\mathbf{x}\) of size \(M\) can be expressed as:

\[y_i = x_{l_i} \quad \forall i=0,1,\ldots,N-1\]

where \(\mathbf{l}=[l_0, l_1,\ldots, l_{N-1}]\) is a vector containing the indices of the original array at which samples are taken.

Conversely, in adjoint mode the available values in the data vector \(\mathbf{y}\) are placed at locations \(\mathbf{l}=[l_0, l_1,\ldots, l_{M-1}]\) in the model vector:

\[x_{l_i} = y_i \quad \forall i=0,1,\ldots,N-1\]

and \(x_{j}=0\) for \(j \neq l_i\) (i.e., at all other locations in input vector).
