Tool to compute a geometric mean. The geometric mean of a list of numbers is a representation which gives an estimate of the tendency of the data in a list, it has the advantage of being less sensitive to high values.

### How to compute a geometric mean?

For a list of $n$ values $X = \{x_1, x_2, \dots, x_n\}$, the geometric mean is defined by the nth root ( $\sqrt[n]{}$ ) of the product of the values.

$$\bar{x}_{geom} = \sqrt[n]{\prod_{i=1}^n{x_i}}$$

Example: The list of $3$ numbers $\{1, 10, 100 \}$ has for geometric mean $\sqrt{1 \times 10 \times 100} = 10$, whereas it has for arithmetic mean $55.5$.

To get a geometric representation, the geometric mean of the sides of a rectangle has a value $c$ which could be the length of one side of a square of area identical to the original rectangle.

Example: A rectangle of $6 \times 10$ has an area of $60$. The geometric mean of $6$ and $10$ is $\approx 7.746$. And a square of side length $7.746$ has an area of $\approx 60$.

When the values are assigned coefficients, it is called a weighted geometric mean.

### How to program/code a geometric mean function?

Using the mathematical formula : //Pythonimport numpy as npdef geometric_mean(iterable): a = np.array(iterable) return a.prod()**(1.0/len(a)) or to avoid a potential number overflow ://Pythonimport numpy as npdef geometric_mean(iterable): a = np.log(iterable) return np.exp(a.sum()/len(a))
