Methods Documentation

array_interface(self: psi4.core.Vector) → list

classmethod from_array(arr, name='New Matrix', dim1=None, dim2=None)

Converts a numpy array or list of numpy arrays into a Psi4 Matrix (irreped if list).

Parameters:
  • arr (array or list of arrays) – Numpy array or list of arrays to use as the data for a new core.Matrix
  • name (str) – Name to give the new core.Matrix
  • dim1 (list, tuple, or core.Dimension (optional)) – If a single dense numpy array is given, a dimension can be supplied to apply irreps to this array. Note that this discards all extra information given in the matrix besides the diagonal blocks determined by the passed dimension.
  • dim2 – Same as dim1 only if using a Psi4.Dimension object.
Returns:

matrix – Returns the given Psi4 object

Return type:

Matrix or Vector

Notes

This is a generalized function to convert a NumPy array to a Psi4 object

to_array(matrix, copy=True, dense=False)

Converts a Psi4 Matrix or Vector to a numpy array. Either copies the data or simply consturcts a view.

Returns:

array – Returns either a list of np.array’s or the base array depending on options.

Return type:
