class pylops.signalprocessing.Convolve1D(N, h, offset=0, dims=None, dir=0, dtype='float64')[source]

1D convolution operator.

Apply one-dimensional convolution with a compact filter to model (and data) along a specific direction of a multi-dimensional array depending on the choice of dir.

N : int

Number of samples in model.

h : numpy.ndarray

1d compact filter to be convolved to input signal

offset : int

Index of the center of the compact filter

dims : tuple

Number of samples for each dimension (None if only one dimension is available)

dir : int, optional

Direction along which convolution is applied

dtype : str, optional

Type of elements in input array.


The Convolve1D operator applies convolution between the input signal \(x(t)\) and a compact filter kernel \(h(t)\) in forward model:

\[y(t) = \int_{-\inf}^{\inf} h(t-\tau) x(\tau) d\tau\]

This operation can be discretized as follows

\[y[n] = \sum_{m=-\inf}^{\inf} h[n-m] x[m]\]

as well as performed in the frequency domain.

\[Y(f) = \mathscr{F} (h(t)) * \mathscr{F} (x(t))\]

Convolve1D operator uses scipy.signal.convolve that automatically chooses the best domain for the operation to be carried out for one dimensional inputs. The fft implementation scipy.signal.fftconvolve is however enforced for signals in 2 or more dimensions as this routine efficently operates on multi-dimensional arrays.

As the adjoint of convolution is correlation, Convolve1D operator applies correlation in the adjoint mode.

In time domain:

\[x(t) = \int_{-\inf}^{\inf} h(t+\tau) x(\tau) d\tau\]

or in frequency domain:

\[y(t) = \mathscr{F}^{-1} (H(f)^* * X(f))\]
