BigMip(phi=None, unpartitioned_constellation=None, partitioned_constellation=None, subsystem=None, cut_subsystem=None, time=None, small_phi_time=None)¶
A minimum information partition for \(\Phi\) calculation.
BigMips may be compared with the built-in Python comparison operators (
>, etc.). First,
phivalues are compared. Then, if these are equal up to
constants.PRECISION, the size of the subsystem is compared (exclusion principle).
float – The \(\Phi\) value for the subsystem when taken against this MIP, i.e. the difference between the unpartitioned constellation and this MIP’s partitioned constellation.
Constellation – The constellation of the whole subsystem.
Constellation – The constellation when the subsystem is cut.
Subsystem – The subsystem this MIP was calculated for.
Subsystem – The subsystem with the minimal cut applied.
float – The number of seconds it took to calculate.
float – The number of seconds it took to calculate the unpartitioned constellation.
The unidirectional cut that makes the least difference to the subsystem.
A BigMip is truthy if it is not reducible.
(That is, if it has a significant amount of \(\Phi\).)
