# The transitionMatrix Library

.. image:: ../../examples/overview.png

transitionMatrix is a pure Python powered library for the statistical analysis and visualization of state transition phenomena. It can be used to analyze any dataset that captures timestamped transitions in a discrete state space.

## Functionality

You can use transitionMatrix to:

• Estimate transition matrices from historical event data using a variety of estimators
• Characterise transition matrices (identify their key properties)
• Visualize event data and transition matrices
• Manipulate transition matrices (derive generators, perform comparisons, stress transition rates etc.)
• Access standardized Datasets for testing
• Extract and work with credit default curves (absorbing states)
• Map credit ratings using mapping tables
• More (still to be documented :-)

## Architecture

• transitionMatrix provides intuitive objects for handling transition matrices individually and as sets (based on numpy arrays)
• supports file input/output in json and csv formats
• it has a powerful API for handling event data (based on pandas and numpy)
• supports visualization using matplotlib

# Installation

You can install and use the transitionMatrix package in any system that supports the `Scipy ecosystem of tools <https://scipy.org/install.html>`_

## Dependencies

• TransitionMatrix requires Python 3 (currently 3.7)
• It depends on numerical and data processing Python libraries (Numpy, Scipy, Pandas).
• The Visualization API depends on Matplotlib.
• The precise dependencies are listed in the requirements.txt file.
• TransitionMatrix may work with earlier versions of python / these packages but it is not tested.

## From PyPI

.. code:: bash

``````pip3 install transitionMatrix
``````

## From sources

.. code:: bash

``````git clone https://github.com/open-risk/transitionMatrix
``````

## Using virtualenv

It is advisable to install the package in a virtualenv so as not to interfere with your system's python distribution

.. code:: bash

``````virtualenv -p python3 tm_test
source tm_test/bin/activate
``````

If you do not have pandas already installed make sure you install it first (this will also install numpy and other required dependencies).

.. code:: bash

``````pip3 install -r requirements.txt
``````

Finally issue the install command and you are ready to go!

.. code:: bash

``````python3 setup.py install
``````

## File structure

The distribution has the following structure:

::

``````| transitionMatrix/     Directory with the library source code
| -- model.py           File with main data structures
| -- estimators/        Directory with the estimator methods
| -- statespaces/       Directory with state space objects and methods
| -- creditratings/     Directory with predefined credit rating structures
| -- generators/        Directory with data generator methods
| -- utils/             Directory with helper classes and methods
| -- examples/          Directory with usage examples

| ---- notebooks/       Examples as jupyter notebooks
| -- datasets/          Directory with a variety of datasets useful for getting started
| -- tests/             Directory with the testing suite
``````
