# Python Pandas - Check whether two Interval objects overlap

To check whether two Interval objects overlap, use the **overlaps()** method. At first, import the required libraries −

import pandas as pd

Two intervals overlap if they share a common point, including closed endpoints. Intervals that only have an open endpoint in common do not overlap. Create two Interval objects

interval1 = pd.Interval(10, 30) interval2 = pd.Interval(25, 35)

Display the intervals

print("Interval1...\n",interval1) print("Interval2...\n",interval2)

Check whether both the interval objects overlap

print("\nDo both the interval objects overlap?\n",interval1.overlaps(interval2))

## Example

Following is the code

import pandas as pd # Two intervals overlap if they share a common point, including closed endpoints # Intervals that only have an open endpoint in common do not overlap # create two Interval objects interval1 = pd.Interval(10, 30) interval2 = pd.Interval(25, 35) # display the intervals print("Interval1...\n",interval1) print("Interval2...\n",interval2) # display the length of both Interval1 and Interval2 objects print("\nInterval1 object length = ",interval1.length) print("\nInterval2 object length = ",interval2.length) # check whether both the interval objects overlap print("\nDo both the interval objects overlap?\n",interval1.overlaps(interval2))

## Output

This will produce the following code

Interval1... (10, 30] Interval2... (25, 35] Interval1 object length = 20 Interval2 object length = 10 Do both the interval objects overlap? True
