A static method does not receive an implicit first argument. To declare a static method, use this idiom:
class C: @staticmethod def f(arg1, arg2, ...): ...
@staticmethod form is a function decorator — see the description

Manual] for details.
It can be called either on the class (such as
C.f()) or on an
instance (such as
C().f()). The instance is ignored except for its
Static methods in Python are similar to those found in Java or C++. For a more advanced concept, see classmethod.
For more information on static methods, consult the documentation on the standard type hierarchy in chapter 3 of the [Python Reference Manual] (at the bottom). New in version 2.2. Changed in version 2.4: Function decorator syntax added.
