Throughout the library, vectors are provided as float * pointers. Most algorithms can be optimized when several vectors are processed (added/searched) together in a batch. In this case, they are passed in as a matrix. When n vectors of size d are provided as float * x, component j of vector i is

x[ i * d + j ]

where 0 <= i < n and 0 <= j < d. In other words, matrices are always compact. When specifying the size of the matrix, we call it an n*d matrix, which implies a row-major storage.

This source code is licensed under the MIT license found in the LICENSE file in the root directory of this source tree. Since IVF (inverted file) indexes are of so much use for large-scale use cases, we group a few functions related to them in this small library. Most functions work both on IndexIVFs and IndexIVFs embedded within an IndexPreTransform.

struct IndexIVFAdditiveQuantizer : public faiss::IndexIVF
#include <IndexIVFAdditiveQuantizer.h>

Abstract class for IVF additive quantizers. The search functions are in common.

Subclassed by faiss::IndexIVFLocalSearchQuantizer, faiss::IndexIVFResidualQuantizer

Public Types

using Search_type_t = AdditiveQuantizer::Search_type_t

Public Functions

IndexIVFAdditiveQuantizer(AdditiveQuantizer *aq, Index *quantizer, size_t d, size_t nlist, MetricType metric = METRIC_L2)
explicit IndexIVFAdditiveQuantizer(AdditiveQuantizer *aq)
virtual void train_residual(idx_t n, const float *x) override

Sub-classes that encode the residuals can train their encoders here does nothing by default

virtual void encode_vectors(idx_t n, const float *x, const idx_t *list_nos, uint8_t *codes, bool include_listnos = false) const override

Encodes a set of vectors as they would appear in the inverted lists

Parameters
  • list_nos – inverted list ids as returned by the quantizer (size n). -1s are ignored.

  • codes – output codes, size n * code_size

  • include_listno – include the list ids in the code (in this case add ceil(log8(nlist)) to the code size)

virtual InvertedListScanner *get_InvertedListScanner(bool store_pairs) const override

Get a scanner for this index (store_pairs means ignore labels)

The default search implementation uses this to compute the distances
