Apply some functions to columns of a dataframe

Hello,
I’m a beginner in Julia.
Here is my problem; i have:

  1. a dataframe with 4 columns and 10 rows
  2. 3 functions u1, u2, u3
  3. a vector of 3 weights

And i want to create a function (arguments : the dataframe, the 3 functions and the weights ) this function must return a vector built as follows

  • we apply the function u1 on values of column 2, the function u2 on values of column 3, the function u3 on values of column 4
  • then we do, for each row, a weighted sum with vector w
  • so, we have at the end a vector with 10 values

I don’t know how to do.
Thanks for your help.

Have you worked through any tutorials on DataFrames.jl or DataFramesMeta.jl.

This is very easy to do with those tools.

Thanks for your help and for the links of tutorials !

I come back to you.
It works for all functions but not for functions obtained by linear Interpolation as below

using Interpolations
x1=sort(vf[1][:,2])
y1=reverse(vf[1][:,1])
f1=LinearInterpolation(x1,y1)

where vf[1] is a 3x2 matrix

The error is :
BoundsError: attempt to access 3-element extrapolate(interpolate((::Vector{Float64},), ::Vector{Float64}, Gridded(Linear())), Throw()) with element type Float64 at index [2]

Thanks in advance.

This is a very different question. Please post it in a new thread.

Additionally, take a look at a little guide for asking informative questions.

OK; i will post a new thread.
Thanks !
