mindspore.Tensor¶

class
mindspore.
Tensor
(input_data=None, dtype=None, shape=None, init=None)[source]¶ Tensor is a data structure that stores an ndimensional array.
 Parameters
input_data (Union[Tensor, float, int, bool, tuple, list, numpy.ndarray]) – The data to be stored. It can be another Tensor, Python number or NumPy ndarray. Default: None.
dtype (
mindspore.dtype
) – Used to indicate the data type of the output Tensor. The argument should be defined in mindspore.dtype. If it is None, the data type of the output Tensor will be the same as the input_data. Default: None.shape (Union[tuple, list, int]) – Used to indicate the shape of the output Tensor. The argument should be a list of integers, a tuple of integers or an integer. If input_data is available, shape doesn’t need to be set. Default: None.
init (Initializer) – The information of init data. ‘init’ is used for delayed initialization in parallel mode. Usually, it is not recommended to use ‘init’ interface to initialize Tensor in the other conditions. If ‘init’ interface is used to initialize Tensor, the Tensor.init_data API needs to be called to convert Tensor to the actual data. Default: None.
 Outputs:
Tensor.

If the shape of the new tensor is larger than the shape of the original tensor, the new tensor will be filled with 0. And if the shape of the new tensor is smaller than the shape of the original tensor, the new tensor is filled with the elements of the original tensor in order.
Note
Instead of changing the size of the input tensor and returns nothing as in numpy, this method returns a new Tensor with the input size. Numpy argument refcheck is not supported.
 Parameters
new_shape (Union[ints, tuple of ints]) – Shape of resized tensor.
 Returns
Tensor.

searchsorted
(v, side="left", sorter=None)[source]¶ Finds indices where elements should be inserted to maintain order.
 Parameters
v (Union[int, float, bool, list, tuple, Tensor]) – Values to insert into the tensor.
side ('left', 'right', optional) – If ‘left’, the index of the first suitable location found is given. If ‘right’, return the last such index. If there is no suitable index, return either 0 or N (where N is the length of the tensor). Default: ‘left’.
sorter (Union[int, float, bool, list, tuple, Tensor]) – 1D optional tensor of integer indices that sort the tensor into ascending order. They are typically the result of argsort. Default: None.
 Returns

std
(axis=None, ddof=0, keepdims=False)[source]¶ Compute the standard deviation along the specified axis.
The standard deviation is the square root of the average of the squared deviations from the mean, i.e., \(std = sqrt(mean(abs(x  x.mean())**2))\).
Return the standard deviation, which is computed for the flattened array by default, otherwise over the specified axis.
Note

sum
(axis=None, dtype=None, keepdims=False, initial=None)[source]¶ Return sum of tensor elements over a given axis.
Note
Numpy arguments out, where, casting, order, subok, signature, and extobj are not supported.
 Parameters
axis (Union[None, int, tuple(int)]) – Axis or axes along which a sum is performed. Default: None. If None, sum all the elements of the input tensor. If the axis is negative, it counts from the last to the first axis. If the axis is a tuple of ints, a sum is performed on all the axes specified in the tuple instead of a single axis or all the axes as before.
dtype (
mindspore.dtype
, optional) – defaults to None. Overrides the dtype of the output Tensor.keepdims (bool) – If this is set to True, the axes which are reduced are left in the result as dimensions with size one. With this option, the result will broadcast correctly against the input array. If the default value is passed, then keepdims will not be passed through to the sum method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised. Default: False.
initial (scalar) – Starting value for the sum. Default: None.
 Returns
Tensor. A tensor with the same shape as input, with the specified axis removed. If the input tensor is a 0d array, or if the axis is None, a scalar is returned.
 Raises
TypeError – If input is not array_like, or axis is not int or tuple of ints, or keepdims is not integer, or initial is not scalar.
ValueError – If any axis is out of range or duplicate axes exist.

take
(indices, axis=None, mode="clip")[source]¶ Takes elements from a tensor along an axis.
 Parameters
indices (Tensor) – The indices with shape (Nj…) of the values to extract.
axis (int, optional) – The axis over which to select values. By default, the flattened input tensor is used. Default: None.
mode ('raise', 'wrap', 'clip', optional) –
Default: “clip”.
’raise’ – Raises an error;
’wrap’ – Wraps around;
’clip’ – Clips to the range. ‘clip’ mode means that all indices that are too large are replaced by the index that addresses the last element along that axis. Note that this disables indexing with negative numbers.
Default: ‘clip’.
 Returns

to_tensor
(slice_index=None, shape=None, opt_shard_group=None)[source]¶ Return init_data() and get the tensor format data of this Tensor.
Note
The usage of to_tensor is deprecated. Please use init_data.
 Parameters

transpose
(*axes)[source]¶ Return a tensor with axes transposed.
For a 1D tensor, this has no effect, as a transposed vector is simply the same vector.
For a 2D tensor, this is a standard matrix transpose.
For an nD tensor, if axes are given, their order indicates how the axes are permuted.
If axes are not provided and
tensor.shape = (i[0], i[1],...i[n2], i[n1])
, thentensor.transpose().shape = (i[n1], i[n2], ... i[1], i[0])
. Parameters
axes (Union[None, tuple(int), list(int), int], optional) – If axes is None or blank, the method will reverse the order of the axes. If axes is tuple(int) or list(int), tensor.transpose() will transpose the tensor to the new axes order. If axes is int, this form is simply intended as a convenience alternative to the tuple/list form.
 Returns
Tensor, has the same dimension as input tensor, with axes suitably permuted.
 Raises
TypeError – If input arguments have types not specified above.
ValueError – If the number of axes is not equal to Tensor’s ndim.

Ascend
GPU

>>> import numpy as np >>> from mindspore import Tensor >>> x = Tensor(np.ones((1,2,3), dtype=np.float32)) >>> x = x.transpose() >>> print(x.shape) (3, 2, 1)

var
(axis=None, ddof=0, keepdims=False)[source]¶ Compute the variance along the specified axis.
The variance is the average of the squared deviations from the mean, i.e., \(var = mean(abs(x  x.mean())**2)\).
Return the variance, which is computed for the flattened array by default, otherwise over the specified axis.
Note
Numpy arguments dtype, out and where are not supported.
 Parameters
axis (Union[None, int, tuple(int)]) – Axis or axes along which the variance is computed. The default is to compute the variance of the flattened array. Default: None.
ddof (int) – Means Delta Degrees of Freedom. Default: 0. The divisor used in calculations is \(N  ddof\), where \(N\) represents the number of elements.
keepdims (bool) – Default: False.
