hpvsim.parameters module

Set the parameters for hpvsim.


Create the parameters for the simulation. Typically, this function is used internally rather than called by the user; e.g. typical use would be to do sim = hpv.Sim() and then inspect sim.pars, rather than calling this function directly.

  • version (str) – if supplied, use parameters from this version

  • kwargs (dict) – any additional kwargs are interpreted as parameter names


the parameters of the simulation

Return type:

pars (dict)

reset_layer_pars(pars, layer_keys=None, force=False)[source]

Helper function to set layer-specific parameters. If layer keys are not provided, then set them based on the population type. This function is not usually called directly by the user, although it can sometimes be used to fix layer key mismatches (i.e. if the contact layers in the population do not match the parameters). More commonly, however, mismatches need to be fixed explicitly.

  • pars (dict) – the parameters dictionary

  • layer_keys (list) – the layer keys of the population, if available

  • force (bool) – reset the parameters even if they already exist
