4.6.9. pde.tools.numba module

Helper functions for just-in-time compilation with numba

class Counter(value=0)[source]

Bases: object

helper class for implementing JIT_COUNT

We cannot use a simple integer for this, since integers are immutable, so if one imports JIT_COUNT from this module it would always stay at the fixed value it had when it was first imported. The workaround would be to import the symbol every time the counter is read, but this is error-prone. Instead, we implement a thin wrapper class around an int, which only supports reading and incrementing the value. Since this object is now mutable it can be used easily. A disadvantage is that the object needs to be converted to int before it can be used in most expressions.


value (int) –

flat_idx(arr, i)[source]

helper function allowing indexing of scalars as if they arrays

Return type:

int | float | complex


returns a numba numerical type in which all arrays can be represented


*args – All items to be tested

Returns: numba.complex128 if any entry is complex, otherwise numba.double

jit(function, signature=None, parallel=False, **kwargs)[source]

apply nb.jit with predefined arguments

  • function (TFunc) – The function which is jitted

  • signature – Signature of the function to compile

  • parallel (bool) – Allow parallel compilation of the function

  • **kwargs – Additional arguments to nb.jit


Function that will be compiled using numba

Return type:



returns an array within a jitted function using basic information


arr (ndarray) – The array that should be accessible within jit

Return type:

Callable[[], ndarray]


A reference to the array needs to be retained outside the numba code to prevent garbage collection from removing the array


converts a python dictionary to a numba typed dictionary


data (Dict[str, Any] | None) –

Return type:

Dict | None


return information about the numba setup used


(dict) information about the numba setup

Return type:

Dict[str, Any]
