Segment¶

class gwpy.segments.Segment(iterable=
()
, /)[source]¶ A tuple defining a semiopen interval
[start, end)
Each
Segment
represents the range of values in a given interval, with general arithmetic supported for combining/comparing overlapping segments.Examples
>>> Segment(0, 10) & Segment(5, 15) Segment(5, 10) >>> Segment(0, 10)  Segment(5, 15) Segment(0, 15) >>> Segment(0, 10)  Segment(5, 15) Segment(0, 5) >>> Segment(0, 10) < Segment(5, 15) True >>> Segment(1, 2) in Segment(0, 10) True >>> Segment(1, 11) in Segment(0, 10) False >>> Segment(0, 1) Segment(0, 1) >>> Segment(1, 0) Segment(0, 1) >>> bool(Segment(0, 1)) True
Attributes Summary
The GPS end time of this segment
The GPS start time of this segment
Methods Summary
Return True if self connects exactly onto other.
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by adding x to the segment's lower bound and subtracting x from the segment's upper bound.
count
(value, /)Return number of occurrences of value.
Returns >0 if self covers an interval above other's interval, <0 if self covers an interval below other's, or 0 if the two intervals are not disjoint (intersect or touch).
index
(value[, start, stop])Return first index of value.
Return True if the intersection of self and other is not a null segment.
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by subtracting x from the segment's lower bound and adding x to the segment's upper bound.
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by adding x to the segment's upper and lower bounds.
Attributes Documentation
 end¶
The GPS end time of this segment
 start¶
The GPS start time of this segment
Methods Documentation
 connects()¶
Return True if self connects exactly onto other.
 contract()¶
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by adding x to the segment’s lower bound and subtracting x from the segment’s upper bound.
 count(value, /)¶
Return number of occurrences of value.
 disjoint()¶
Returns >0 if self covers an interval above other’s interval, <0 if self covers an interval below other’s, or 0 if the two intervals are not disjoint (intersect or touch). A return value of 0 indicates the two segments would coalesce.

index(value, start=
0
, stop=sys.maxsize
, /)¶ Return first index of value.
Raises ValueError if the value is not present.
 intersects()¶
Return True if the intersection of self and other is not a null segment.
 protract()¶
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by subtracting x from the segment’s lower bound and adding x to the segment’s upper bound.
 shift()¶
Return a new segment whose bounds are given by adding x to the segment’s upper and lower bounds.
