msmtools.flux.coarsegrain(F, sets)

Coarse-grains the flux to the given sets.

  • F ((n, n) ndarray or scipy.sparse matrix) – Matrix of flux values between pairs of states.
  • sets (list of array-like of ints) – The sets of states onto which the flux is coarse-grained.


The coarse grained flux is defined as

\[fc_{I,J} = \sum_{i \in I,j \in J} f_{i,j}\]

Note that if you coarse-grain a net flux, it does n ot necessarily have a net flux property anymore. If want to make sure you get a netflux, use to_netflux(coarsegrain(F,sets)).
