class pymc.Interpolated(name, *args, rng=None, dims=None, initval=None, observed=None, total_size=None, transform=UNSET, **kwargs)[source]#

Univariate probability distribution defined as a linear interpolation of probability density function evaluated on some lattice of points.

The lattice can be uneven, so the steps between different points can have different size and it is possible to vary the precision between regions of the support.

The probability density function values don not have to be normalized, as the interpolated density is any way normalized to make the total probability equal to $1$.

Both parameters x_points and values pdf_points are not variables, but plain array-like objects, so they are constant and cannot be sampled.
