jax.numpy.array(object, dtype=None, copy=True, order='K', ndmin=0)[source]ΒΆ

Create an array.

LAX-backend implementation of array().

Original docstring below.

  • object (array_like) – An array, any object exposing the array interface, an object whose __array__ method returns an array, or any (nested) sequence.

  • dtype (data-type, optional) – The desired data-type for the array. If not given, then the type will be determined as the minimum type required to hold the objects in the sequence.

  • copy (bool, optional) – If true (default), then the object is copied. Otherwise, a copy will only be made if __array__ returns a copy, if obj is a nested sequence, or if a copy is needed to satisfy any of the other requirements (dtype, order, etc.).

  • order ({'K', 'A', 'C', 'F'}, optional) –

    Specify the memory layout of the array. If object is not an array, the newly created array will be in C order (row major) unless β€˜F’ is specified, in which case it will be in Fortran order (column major). If object is an array the following holds.


    no copy




    F & C order preserved, otherwise most similar order



    F order if input is F and not C, otherwise C order


    C order

    C order


    F order

    F order

    When copy=False and a copy is made for other reasons, the result is the same as if copy=True, with some exceptions for A, see the Notes section. The default order is β€˜K’.

  • ndmin (int, optional) – Specifies the minimum number of dimensions that the resulting array should have. Ones will be pre-pended to the shape as needed to meet this requirement.


out – An array object satisfying the specified requirements.
