Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.union()

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas TimedeltaIndex.union() function is a specialized union for TimedeltaIndex objects. It combine overlapping ranges with the same DateOffset, will be much faster than Index.union

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.union(other)



Parameters :
other : TimedeltaIndex or array-like

Return : Index or TimedeltaIndex

Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.union() function to find the set union of two TimedeltaIndex objects.

# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the first TimedeltaIndex object
tidx1 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='11 days 22:11:12.001124',
                         periods = 5, freq ='T', name ='New_object')
  
# Create the seccond TimedeltaIndex object
tidx2 = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='11 days 22:14:12.001124',
                         periods = 5, freq ='T', name ='New_object')
  
# Print the first TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx1)
  
# Print the second TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx2)
