Parameters:
numeric_onlybool, default False

Include only float, int, boolean columns.

  • 'numba' : Runs the operation through JIT compiled code from numba.

  • None : Defaults to 'cython' or globally setting compute.use_numba

    New in version 1.3.0.

engine_kwargsdict, default None
  • For 'cython' engine, there are no accepted engine_kwargs

  • For 'numba' engine, the engine can accept nopython, nogil and parallel dictionary keys. The values must either be True or False. The default engine_kwargs for the 'numba' engine is {'nopython': True, 'nogil': False, 'parallel': False}
