pyarrow.compute.tdigest(array, /, q=0.5, *, delta=100, buffer_size=500, skip_nulls=True, min_count=0, options=None, memory_pool=None)#

Approximate quantiles of a numeric array with T-Digest algorithm.

By default, 0.5 quantile (median) is returned. Nulls and NaNs are ignored. An array of nulls is returned if there is no valid data point.


Argument to compute function.

qdouble or sequence of double, default 0.5

Quantiles to approximate. All values must be in [0, 1].

deltaint, default 100

Compression parameter for the T-digest algorithm.

buffer_sizeint, default 500

Buffer size for the T-digest algorithm.

skip_nullsbool, default True

Whether to skip (ignore) nulls in the input. If False, any null in the input forces the output to null.

min_countint, default 0

Minimum number of non-null values in the input. If the number of non-null values is below min_count, the output is null.

optionspyarrow.compute.TDigestOptions, optional

Alternative way of passing options.

memory_poolpyarrow.MemoryPool, optional

If not passed, will allocate memory from the default memory pool.
