Class WeightedRandomSampler

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable


    public class WeightedRandomSamplerextends PersistentObject
    Conveniently computes a stable subsequence of elements from a given input sequence; Picks (samples) exactly one random element from successive blocks of weight input elements each. For example, if weight==2 (a block is 2 elements), and the input is 5*2=10 elements long, then picks 5 random elements from the 10 elements such that one element is randomly picked from the first block, one element from the second block, ..., one element from the last block. weight == 1.0 --> all elements are picked (sampled). weight == 10.0 --> Picks one random element from successive blocks of 10 elements each. Etc. The subsequence is guaranteed to be stable, i.e. elements never change position relative to each other.

      • WeightedRandomSampler

        public WeightedRandomSampler()
        Calls BlockedRandomSampler(1,null).
      • WeightedRandomSampler

        public WeightedRandomSampler(int weight,                     RandomEngine randomGenerator)
        Chooses exactly one random element from successive blocks of weight input elements each. For example, if weight==2, and the input is 5*2=10 elements long, then chooses 5 random elements from the 10 elements such that one is chosen from the first block, one from the second, ..., one from the last block. weight == 1.0 --> all elements are consumed (sampled). 10.0 --> Consumes one random element from successive blocks of 10 elements each. Etc.
        Parameters:
        weight - the weight.
        randomGenerator - a random number generator. Set this parameter to null to use the default random number generator.

      • clone

        public Object clone()
        Returns a deep copy of the receiver.
        Overrides:
        clone in class PersistentObject
        Returns:
        a copy of the receiver.
      • getWeight

        public int getWeight()
        Not yet commented.
        Parameters:
        weight - int
      • sampleNextElement

        public boolean sampleNextElement()
        Chooses exactly one random element from successive blocks of weight input elements each. For example, if weight==2, and the input is 5*2=10 elements long, then chooses 5 random elements from the 10 elements such that one is chosen from the first block, one from the second, ..., one from the last block.
        Returns:
        true if the next element shall be sampled (picked), false otherwise.
