brian2.codegen.optimisation.cancel_identical_terms(primary, inverted)[source]

Cancel terms in a collection, e.g. a+b-a should be cancelled to b

Simply renders the nodes into expressions and removes whenever there is a common expression in primary and inverted.

Parameters: primary : list of AST nodes These are the nodes that are positive with respect to the operator, e.g. in x*y/z it would be [x, y]. inverted : list of AST nodes These are the nodes that are inverted with respect to the operator, e.g. in x*y/z it would be [z]. primary : list of AST nodes Primary nodes after cancellation inverted : list of AST nodes Inverted nodes after cancellation
