**π‘ Problem Formulation:** When working with time series data in Python, a common operation is to modify or floor the resolution of timedelta objects. Specifically, we may want to truncate a timedelta to a minutely resolution, so that any smaller time units (seconds or milliseconds) are disregarded. For instance, if the input is `Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456')`

, the desired output is `Timedelta('0 days 00:05:00')`

, representing a floored timedelta to the nearest minute.

## Method 1: Using floor Function

This method utilizes the `floor()`

function provided by the `Timedelta`

object in pandas. It allows for rounding down the timedelta to a specified frequency. The pandas `Timedelta`

class can parse and output a floored object when given an appropriate frequency string such as ‘T’ for minutes.

Here’s an example:

import pandas as pd # Creating Timedelta Series times = pd.Series([pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456')]) # Use apply with a lambda to floor each timedelta floored_times = times.apply(lambda td: td.floor('T')) print(floored_times)

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

In one line of code, we apply a lambda function that calls the floor method with ‘T’ (minute) frequency on each `Timedelta`

in the Series. This is a quick and flexible solution for applying complex operations to Series elements.

## Summary/Discussion

**Method 1:**Using floor Function. Straightforward and concise. It applies to single Timedelta objects and Series via .dt accessor.**Method 2:**Timedelta Components Manipulation. Manipulates raw Timedelta components, offering fine control. More verbose and less intuitive than other methods.**Method 3:**Using to_pydatetime and timedelta. Combines pandas and Python’s native datetime modules, increasing complexity but also interoperability with other datetime modules.**Method 4:**Using dt Accessor Floor Method. Ideal for Series of Timedeltas. Vectorized for efficiency, but only applicable to Series, not individual Timedeltas.**Method 5:**Using a Lambda Function. Versatile and compact for Series. The syntax may be less clear to those not familiar with lambda functions.

import pandas as pd # Creating Timedelta Series times = pd.Series([pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456')]) # Floor the whole series to nearest minute floored_times = times.dt.floor('T') print(floored_times)

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

This example showcases how to floor an entire Series of `Timedelta`

objects to a minutely resolution all at once. The `.dt.floor('T')`

method is the vectorized equivalent for Series to the scalar `floor()`

method discussed earlier.

## Bonus One-Liner Method 5: Using a Lambda Function

A one-liner approach utilizes a lambda function within the `apply()`

method on a Series to achieve minute floored resolution. This method is both succinct and powerful.

Here’s an example:

import pandas as pd # Creating Timedelta Series times = pd.Series([pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456')]) # Use apply with a lambda to floor each timedelta floored_times = times.apply(lambda td: td.floor('T')) print(floored_times)

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

In one line of code, we apply a lambda function that calls the floor method with ‘T’ (minute) frequency on each `Timedelta`

in the Series. This is a quick and flexible solution for applying complex operations to Series elements.

import pandas as pd from datetime import timedelta # Creating a Timedelta object original_td = pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456') # Convert and floor to nearest minute floored_td = timedelta( minutes=original_td.to_pytimedelta().seconds // 60 ) print(pd.Timedelta(floored_td))

`0 days 00:05:00`

By converting a pandas `Timedelta`

to the standard library’s `timedelta`

, rounding down the seconds, and converting back to a pandas `Timedelta`

, this approach achieves minute resolution. Note that one must handle seconds conversion properly to avoid issues with days in the `Timedelta`

.

## Method 4: Using dt Accessor Floor Method

Pandas Series objects with datetime-like values provide the `.dt`

accessor for date and time properties and methods, including `floor`

. This is highly efficient when working with Series containing timedelta values.

Here’s an example:

import pandas as pd # Creating Timedelta Series times = pd.Series([pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456')]) # Floor the whole series to nearest minute floored_times = times.dt.floor('T') print(floored_times)

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

This example showcases how to floor an entire Series of `Timedelta`

objects to a minutely resolution all at once. The `.dt.floor('T')`

method is the vectorized equivalent for Series to the scalar `floor()`

method discussed earlier.

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

In one line of code, we apply a lambda function that calls the floor method with ‘T’ (minute) frequency on each `Timedelta`

in the Series. This is a quick and flexible solution for applying complex operations to Series elements.

`0 days 00:05:00`

Here, we decompose the `Timedelta`

into its component parts and rebuild it, discarding any smaller than minute units. This gives us a new `Timedelta`

precisely floored to minutely resolution.

## Method 3: Using to_pydatetime and timedelta

Conversion to Python’s native `datetime.timedelta`

object and truncating the seconds can also floor a pandas `Timedelta`

to a minutely resolution. This method involves using the `to_pydatetime()`

method.

Here’s an example:

import pandas as pd from datetime import timedelta # Creating a Timedelta object original_td = pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456') # Convert and floor to nearest minute floored_td = timedelta( minutes=original_td.to_pytimedelta().seconds // 60 ) print(pd.Timedelta(floored_td))

`0 days 00:05:00`

By converting a pandas `Timedelta`

`0 days 00:05:00`

This snippet creates a `Timedelta`

object representing a duration of 5 minutes, 45 seconds, and some microseconds. Applying the `floor('T')`

method truncates the timestamp to the nearest minute, effectively zeroing seconds and microseconds.

## Method 2: Timedelta Components Manipulation

A direct approach for minutely floored resolution is to manually adjust the components of Timedelta object. The `Timedelta`

object in pandas has properties like `seconds`

which can be used for this manipulation.

Here’s an example:

import pandas as pd # Creating a Timedelta object original_td = pd.Timedelta('0 days 00:05:45.123456') # Manipulate the seconds to floor to minutes floored_td = pd.Timedelta(minutes=original_td.components.minutes) print(floored_td)

, this approach achieves minute resolution. Note that one must handle seconds conversion properly to avoid issues with days in the `Timedelta`

.

## Method 4: Using dt Accessor Floor Method

`.dt`

accessor for date and time properties and methods, including `floor`

. This is highly efficient when working with Series containing timedelta values.

Here’s an example:

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

`Timedelta`

objects to a minutely resolution all at once. The `.dt.floor('T')`

method is the vectorized equivalent for Series to the scalar `floor()`

method discussed earlier.

## Bonus One-Liner Method 5: Using a Lambda Function

`apply()`

method on a Series to achieve minute floored resolution. This method is both succinct and powerful.

Here’s an example:

` 0 0 days 00:05:00 dtype: timedelta64[ns] `

`Timedelta`

in the Series. This is a quick and flexible solution for applying complex operations to Series elements.

## Summary/Discussion

**Method 1:**Using floor Function. Straightforward and concise. It applies to single Timedelta objects and Series via .dt accessor.**Method 2:**Timedelta Components Manipulation. Manipulates raw Timedelta components, offering fine control. More verbose and less intuitive than other methods.**Method 3:**Using to_pydatetime and timedelta. Combines pandas and Python’s native datetime modules, increasing complexity but also interoperability with other datetime modules.**Method 4:**Using dt Accessor Floor Method. Ideal for Series of Timedeltas. Vectorized for efficiency, but only applicable to Series, not individual Timedeltas.**Method 5:**Using a Lambda Function. Versatile and compact for Series. The syntax may be less clear to those not familiar with lambda functions.

`0 days 00:05:00`

`Timedelta`

object representing a duration of 5 minutes, 45 seconds, and some microseconds. Applying the `floor('T')`

method truncates the timestamp to the nearest minute, effectively zeroing seconds and microseconds.

## Method 2: Timedelta Components Manipulation

`Timedelta`

object in pandas has properties like `seconds`

which can be used for this manipulation.

Here’s an example:

`0 days 00:05:00`

`Timedelta`

into its component parts and rebuild it, discarding any smaller than minute units. This gives us a new `Timedelta`

precisely floored to minutely resolution.

## Method 3: Using to_pydatetime and timedelta

`datetime.timedelta`

object and truncating the seconds can also floor a pandas `Timedelta`

to a minutely resolution. This method involves using the `to_pydatetime()`

method.
