cupyx.scipy.signal.savgol_coeffs(window_length, polyorder, deriv=0, delta=1.0, pos=None, use='conv')[source]#

Compute the coefficients for a 1-D Savitzky-Golay FIR filter.

  • window_length (int) – The length of the filter window (i.e., the number of coefficients).

  • polyorder (int) – The order of the polynomial used to fit the samples. polyorder must be less than window_length.

  • deriv (int, optional) – The order of the derivative to compute. This must be a nonnegative integer. The default is 0, which means to filter the data without differentiating.

  • delta (float, optional) – The spacing of the samples to which the filter will be applied. This is only used if deriv > 0.

  • pos (int or None, optional) – If pos is not None, it specifies evaluation position within the window. The default is the middle of the window.

  • use (str, optional) – Either ‘conv’ or ‘dot’. This argument chooses the order of the coefficients. The default is ‘conv’, which means that the coefficients are ordered to be used in a convolution. With use=’dot’, the order is reversed, so the filter is applied by dotting the coefficients with the data set.


coeffs – The filter coefficients.

Return type:

1-D ndarray

Note that use=’dot’ simply reverses the coefficients.

x contains data from the parabola x = t**2, sampled at t = -1, 0, 1, 2, 3. c holds the coefficients that will compute the derivative at the last position. When dotted with x the result should be 6.

>>> x = np.array([1, 0, 1, 4, 9])
>>> c = savgol_coeffs(5, 2, pos=4, deriv=1, use='dot')
