# Store observables¶

## Introduction¶

In this example, we will learn how to store the history of state variables using the add_observable() method. This is useful in situations where we wish to access, post-process, or save the values of discipline outputs that are not design variables, constraints or objective functions.

## The Sellar problem¶

We will consider in this example the Sellar problem:

\begin{split}\begin{aligned} \text{minimize the objective function }&\text{obj}=x_{\text{local}}^2 + x_{\text{shared},2} +y_1^2+e^{-y_2} \\ \text{with respect to the design variables }&x_{\text{shared}},\,x_{\text{local}} \\ \text{subject to the general constraints } & c_1 \leq 0\\ & c_2 \leq 0\\ \text{subject to the bound constraints } & -10 \leq x_{\text{shared},1} \leq 10\\ & 0 \leq x_{\text{shared},2} \leq 10\\ & 0 \leq x_{\text{local}} \leq 10. \end{aligned}\end{split}

where the coupling variables are

$\text{Discipline 1: } y_1 = \sqrt{x_{\text{shared},1}^2 + x_{\text{shared},2} + x_{local} - 0.2\,y_2},$

and

$\text{Discipline 2: }y_2 = |y_1| + x_{\text{shared},1} + x_{\text{shared},2}.$

and where the general constraints are

\begin{align}\begin{aligned}c_1 = 3.16 - y_1^2\\c_2 = y_2 - 24.\end{aligned}\end{align}

## Imports¶

All the imports needed for the tutorials are performed here.

from __future__ import annotations

from gemseo import configure_logger
from gemseo import create_discipline
from gemseo import create_scenario
from gemseo.algos.design_space import DesignSpace
from numpy import array
from numpy import ones

configure_logger()

<RootLogger root (INFO)>


## Create the problem disciplines¶

In this section, we use the available classes Sellar1, Sellar2 and SellarSystem to define the disciplines of the problem. The create_discipline() API function allows us to carry out this task easily, as well as store the instances in a list to be used later on.

disciplines = create_discipline(["Sellar1", "Sellar2", "SellarSystem"])


## Create and execute the scenario¶

### Create the design space¶

In this section, we define the design space which will be used for the creation of the MDOScenario.

design_space = DesignSpace()
design_space.add_variable("x_local", l_b=0.0, u_b=10.0, value=ones(1))
"x_shared", 2, l_b=(-10, 0.0), u_b=(10.0, 10.0), value=array([4.0, 3.0])
)


### Create the scenario¶

In this section, we build the MDO scenario which links the disciplines with the formulation, the design space and the objective function.

scenario = create_scenario(
disciplines, formulation="MDF", objective_name="obj", design_space=design_space
)


### Add the constraints¶

Then, we have to set the design constraints

scenario.add_constraint("c_1", "ineq")


### Add the observables¶

Only the design variables, objective function and constraints are stored by default. In order to be able to recover the data from the state variables, y1 and y2, we have to add them as observables. All we have to do is enter the variable name as a string to the add_observable() method. If more than one output name is provided (as a list of strings), the observable function returns a concatenated array of the output values.

scenario.add_observable("y_1")


It is also possible to add the observable with a custom name, using the option observable_name. Let us store the variable y_2 as y2.

scenario.add_observable("y_2", observable_name="y2")


### Execute the scenario¶

Then, we execute the MDO scenario with the inputs of the MDO scenario as a dictionary. In this example, the gradient-based SLSQP optimizer is selected, with 10 iterations at maximum:

scenario.execute(input_data={"max_iter": 10, "algo": "SLSQP"})

## Access the observable variables¶

### Retrieve observables from a dataset¶

In order to create a dataset, we use the corresponding OptimizationProblem:

opt_problem = scenario.formulation.opt_problem


We can easily build an OptimizationDataset from this OptimizationProblem: either by separating the design parameters from the functions (default option):

dataset = opt_problem.to_dataset("sellar_problem")
print(dataset)

or by considering all features as default parameters:

dataset = opt_problem.to_dataset("sellar_problem", categorize=False)
print(dataset)

or by using an input-output naming rather than an optimization naming:

dataset = opt_problem.to_dataset("sellar_problem", opt_naming=False)
print(dataset)

GROUP            inputs                          ...    outputs
VARIABLE        x_local  x_shared                ...        obj         y2       y_1
COMPONENT             0         0             1  ...          0          0         0
0          1.000000e+00  4.000000  3.000000e+00  ...  21.757227  11.213931  4.213931

[8 rows x 8 columns]


#### Access observables by name¶

We can get the observable data by variable names:

print(dataset.get_view(variable_names=["y_1", "y2"]))

GROUP       outputs
VARIABLE        y_1         y2
COMPONENT         0          0
0          4.213931  11.213931
1          2.320049   4.840098
2          1.841201   3.881611
3          1.778711   3.757421
4          1.777639   3.755278
5          1.777639   3.755278
6          1.777639   3.755278
7          1.777639   3.755278


### Use the observables in a post-processing method¶

Finally, we can generate plots with the observable variables. Have a look at the Basic History plot and the Scatter Plot Matrix:

scenario.post_process(
"BasicHistory",
variable_names=["obj", "y_1", "y2"],
save=False,
show=True,
)
scenario.post_process(
"ScatterPlotMatrix",
variable_names=["obj", "c_1", "c_2", "y2", "y_1"],
save=False,
show=True,
)
