### GetDist : How to make appear mean and standard deviation above subplots

Hello,

I am using GetDist tool to plot joint distribution and I have found on plot gallery ( https://getdist.readthedocs.io/en/latest/plot_gallery.html [In [17] ) :

Code: Select all

# Customized triangle plot
g = plots.get_subplot_plotter()
g.settings.figure_legend_frame = False
g.settings.title_limit_fontsize = 14
g.triangle_plot([samples, samples2], ['x0', 'x1', 'x2'],
filled=True,
legend_labels=['Simulation', 'Simulation 2'],
legend_loc='upper right',
line_args=[{'ls':'--', 'color':'green'},
{'lw':2, 'color':'darkblue'}],
contour_colors=['green','darkblue'],
title_limit=1, # first title limit (for 1D plots) is 68% by default
markers={'x2':0})
and the associated plot :

As you can see, means and standard deviations are noted above each diagonal subplot and I don't know how to make them appear. I took the same snippet code and I can't reproduce this display of values.

If someone could tell the Python command line to apply in order to show these values ...

Regards

### Re: GetDist : How to make appear mean and standard deviation above subplots

maybe a clue :

Code: Select all

title_limit=1
to the

Code: Select all

g.triangle_plot
this way :

Code: Select all

g.triangle_plot([matrix1, matrix2],
names,
filled=True,
legend_labels=['Sum GCs + GCp + WL', 'GCs + (GCp + WL + XC)'],
legend_loc='upper right',
contour_colors=['green','darkblue'],
title_limit=1
)
I get the following error :

Code: Select all

GetDist Version: 1.0.4, Matplotlib version: 2.2.4
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "example_dev_LAST.py", line 42, in <module>

ValueError: title_limit not currently supported for MixtureND
Does this error come from that I am using

Code: Select all

MixtureND
and not

Code: Select all

add_1d
plot ?

The error message is correct - this option is not currently supported for plotting Gaussian mixture models (rather than samples). Pull requests are always welcome if you want to add the support.

Thanks Antony,

I would be glad to add the support, could you indicate me please the source file or the part to modify ?

You'd have to calculate them using the Gaussian mixture classes, but not entirely trivial because they allow for hard prior bounds in each dimension and hence not just trivial Gaussian integrals (marginalized truncated Gaussian is not a Gaussian).
