colour.algebra.least_square_mapping_MoorePenrose(y: ArrayLike, x: ArrayLike) numpy.ndarray[source]#

Compute the least-squares mapping from dependent variable \(y\) to independent variable \(x\) using Moore-Penrose inverse.

Parameters
  • y (ArrayLike) – Dependent and already known \(y\) variable.

  • x (ArrayLike) – Independent \(x\) variable(s) values corresponding with \(y\) variable.

Returns

Least-squares mapping.

Return type

numpy.ndarray

Examples

>>> prng = np.random.RandomState(2)
>>> y = prng.random_sample((24, 3))
>>> x = y + (prng.random_sample((24, 3)) - 0.5) * 0.5
