PolynomialExpansion #

A Transformer that expands the input vectors in polynomial space.

Take a 2-dimension vector as an example: (x, y), if we want to expand it with degree 2, then we get (x, x * x, y, x * y, y * y).

For more information about the polynomial expansion, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polynomial_expansion.

Input Columns #

Param name Type Default Description
inputCol Vector "input" Vectors to be expanded.

Output Columns #

Param name Type Default Description
outputCol Vector "output" Expanded vectors.

Parameters #

Key Default Type Required Description
inputCol "input" String no Input column name.
outputCol "output" String no Output column name.
degree 2 Integer no Degree of the polynomial expansion.
