jax.numpy package¶
Implements the NumPy API, using the primitives in jax.lax
.
While JAX tries to follow the NumPy API as closely as possible, sometimes JAX cannot follow NumPy exactly.
Notably, since JAX arrays are immutable, NumPy APIs that mutate arrays inplace cannot be implemented in JAX. However, often JAX is able to provide an alternative API that is purely functional. For example, instead of inplace array updates (
x[i] = y
), JAX provides an alternative pure indexed update functionjax.ops.index_update()
.Relatedly, some NumPy functions return views of arrays when possible (examples are
numpy.transpose()
andnumpy.reshape()
). JAX versions of such functions will return copies instead, although such copies can often be optimized away by XLA when sequences of operations are compiled usingjax.jit()
.NumPy is very aggressive at promoting values to
float64
type. JAX sometimes is less aggressive about type promotion (See Type promotion semantics).
A small number of NumPy operations that have datadependent output shapes are
incompatible with jax.jit()
compilation. The XLA compiler requires that
shapes of arrays be known at compile time. While it would be possible to provide
a JAX implementation of an API such as numpy.nonzero()
, we would be unable
to JITcompile it because the shape of its output depends on the contents of the
input data.
Not every function in NumPy is implemented; contributions are welcome!

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 all method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
 Returns
all – A new boolean or array is returned unless out is specified, in which case a reference to out is returned.

The order all elements in the partitions is undefined. If provided with a sequence of kth it will partition all of them into their sorted position at once.
axis (int or None, optional) – Axis along which to sort. The default is 1 (the last axis). If None, the flattened array is used.
kind ({'introselect'}, optional) – Selection algorithm. Default is ‘introselect’
order (str or list of str, optional) – When a is an array with fields defined, this argument specifies which fields to compare first, second, etc. A single field can be specified as a string, and not all fields need be specified, but unspecified fields will still be used, in the order in which they come up in the dtype, to break ties.

order (str or list of str, optional) – When a is an array with fields defined, this argument specifies which fields to compare first, second, etc. A single field can be specified as a string, and not all fields need be specified, but unspecified fields will still be used, in the order in which they come up in the dtype, to break ties.
 Returns
index_array – Array of indices that sort a along the specified axis. If a is onedimensional,

choose
(choices, out=None, mode='raise')¶ Construct an array from an index array and a set of arrays to choose from.
LAXbackend implementation of
choose()
.Original docstring below.
First of all, if confused or uncertain, definitely look at the Examples  in its full generality, this function is less simple than it might seem from the following code description (below ndi = numpy.lib.index_tricks):
np.choose(a,c) == np.array([c[a[I]][I] for I in ndi.ndindex(a.shape)])
.But this omits some subtleties. Here is a fully general summary:
Given an “index” array (a) of integers and a sequence of n arrays (choices), a and each choice array are first broadcast, as necessary, to arrays of a common shape; calling these Ba and Bchoices[i], i = 0,…,n1 we have that, necessarily,
Ba.shape == Bchoices[i].shape
for each i. Then, a new array with shapeBa.shape
is created as follows:if
mode=raise
(the default), then, first of all, each element of a (and thus Ba) must be in the range [0, n1]; now, suppose that i (in that range) is the value at the (j0, j1, …, jm) position in Ba  then the value at the same position in the new array is the value in Bchoices[i] at that same position;if
mode=wrap
, values in a (and thus Ba) may be any (signed) integer; modular arithmetic is used to map integers outside the range [0, n1] back into that range; and then the new array is constructed as above;if
mode=clip
, values in a (and thus Ba) may be any (signed) integer; negative integers are mapped to 0; values greater than n1 are mapped to n1; and then the new array is constructed as above.
 Parameters
a (int array) – This array must contain integers in [0, n1], where n is the number of choices, unless
mode=wrap
ormode=clip
, in which cases any integers are permissible.choices (sequence of arrays) – Choice arrays. a and all of the choices must be broadcastable to the same shape. If choices is itself an array (not recommended), then its outermost dimension (i.e., the one corresponding to
choices.shape[0]
) is taken as defining the “sequence”.mode ({'raise' (default), 'wrap', 'clip'}, optional) –
Specifies how indices outside [0, n1] will be treated:
’raise’ : an exception is raised
’wrap’ : value becomes value mod n
’clip’ : values < 0 are mapped to 0, values > n1 are mapped to n1
 Returns
merged_array – The merged result.

diagonal
(offset=0, axis1=0, axis2=1)¶ Return specified diagonals.
LAXbackend implementation of
diagonal()
.The JAX version of this function may in some cases return a copy rather than a view of the input.
Original docstring below.
If a is 2D, returns the diagonal of a with the given offset, i.e., the collection of elements of the form
a[i, i+offset]
. If a has more than two dimensions, then the axes specified by axis1 and axis2 are used to determine the 2D subarray whose diagonal is returned. The shape of the resulting array can be determined by removing axis1 and axis2 and appending an index to the right equal to the size of the resulting diagonals.In versions of NumPy prior to 1.7, this function always returned a new, independent array containing a copy of the values in the diagonal.
In NumPy 1.7 and 1.8, it continues to return a copy of the diagonal, but depending on this fact is deprecated. Writing to the resulting array continues to work as it used to, but a FutureWarning is issued.
Starting in NumPy 1.9 it returns a readonly view on the original array. Attempting to write to the resulting array will produce an error.
In some future release, it will return a read/write view and writing to the returned array will alter your original array. The returned array will have the same type as the input array.
If you don’t write to the array returned by this function, then you can just ignore all of the above.
If you depend on the current behavior, then we suggest copying the returned array explicitly, i.e., use
np.diagonal(a).copy()
instead of justnp.diagonal(a)
. This will work with both past and future versions of NumPy. Parameters
a (array_like) – Array from which the diagonals are taken.
offset (int, optional) – Offset of the diagonal from the main diagonal. Can be positive or negative. Defaults to main diagonal (0).
axis1 (int, optional) – Axis to be used as the first axis of the 2D subarrays from which the diagonals should be taken. Defaults to first axis (0).
axis2 (int, optional) – Axis to be used as the second axis of the 2D subarrays from which the diagonals should be taken. Defaults to second axis (1).
 Returns
array_of_diagonals – If a is 2D, then a 1D array containing the diagonal and of the same type as a is returned unless a is a matrix, in which case a 1D array rather than a (2D) matrix is returned in order to maintain backward compatibility.
If
a.ndim > 2
, then the dimensions specified by axis1 and axis2 are removed, and a new axis inserted at the end corresponding to the diagonal. Return type

dot
(b, *, precision=None)¶ Dot product of two arrays. Specifically,
LAXbackend implementation of
dot()
.In addition to the original NumPy arguments listed below, also supports
precision
for extra control over matrixmultiplication precision on supported devices.precision
may be set toNone
, which means default precision for the backend, alax.Precision
enum value (Precision.DEFAULT
,Precision.HIGH
orPrecision.HIGHEST
) or a tuple of twolax.Precision
enums indicating separate precision for each argument.Original docstring below.
If both a and b are 1D arrays, it is inner product of vectors (without complex conjugation).
If both a and b are 2D arrays, it is matrix multiplication, but using
matmul()
ora @ b
is preferred.If either a or b is 0D (scalar), it is equivalent to
multiply()
and usingnumpy.multiply(a, b)
ora * b
is preferred.If a is an ND array and b is a 1D array, it is a sum product over the last axis of a and b.
If a is an ND array and b is an MD array (where
M>=2
), it is a sum product over the last axis of a and the secondtolast axis of b:dot(a, b)[i,j,k,m] = sum(a[i,j,:] * b[k,:,m])
 Parameters
a (array_like) – First argument.
b (array_like) – Second argument.
out (ndarray, optional) – Output argument. This must have the exact kind that would be returned if it was not used. In particular, it must have the right type, must be Ccontiguous, and its dtype must be the dtype that would be returned for dot(a,b). This is a performance feature. Therefore, if these conditions are not met, an exception is raised, instead of attempting to be flexible.
 Returns
output – Returns the dot product of a and b. If a and b are both scalars or both 1D arrays then a scalar is returned; otherwise an array is returned. If out is given, then it is returned.
 Return type

flatten
(order='C')¶ Return a contiguous flattened array.
LAXbackend implementation of
ravel()
.The JAX version of this function may in some cases return a copy rather than a view of the input.
Original docstring below.
A 1D array, containing the elements of the input, is returned. A copy is made only if needed.
As of NumPy 1.10, the returned array will have the same type as the input array. (for example, a masked array will be returned for a masked array input)
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input array. The elements in a are read in the order specified by order, and packed as a 1D array.
order ({'C','F', 'A', 'K'}, optional) – The elements of a are read using this index order. ‘C’ means to index the elements in rowmajor, Cstyle order, with the last axis index changing fastest, back to the first axis index changing slowest. ‘F’ means to index the elements in columnmajor, Fortranstyle order, with the first index changing fastest, and the last index changing slowest. Note that the ‘C’ and ‘F’ options take no account of the memory layout of the underlying array, and only refer to the order of axis indexing. ‘A’ means to read the elements in Fortranlike index order if a is Fortran contiguous in memory, Clike order otherwise. ‘K’ means to read the elements in the order they occur in memory, except for reversing the data when strides are negative. By default, ‘C’ index order is used.
 Returns
y – y is an array of the same subtype as a, with shape
(a.size,)
. Note that matrices are special cased for backward compatibility, if a is a matrix, then y is a 1D ndarray. Return type
array_like

keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 amax method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
initial (scalar, optional) – The minimum value of an output element. Must be present to allow computation on empty slice. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
where (array_like of bool, optional) – Elements to compare for the maximum. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.

Returns the average of the array elements. The average is taken over the flattened array by default, otherwise over the specified axis. float64 intermediate and return values are used for integer inputs.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Array containing numbers whose mean is desired. If a is not an array, a conversion is attempted.
axis (None or int or tuple of ints, optional) – Axis or axes along which the means are computed. The default is to compute the mean of the flattened array.

keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 mean method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
 Returns
m – If out=None, returns a new array containing the mean values, otherwise a reference to the output array is returned.
 Return type
ndarray, see dtype parameter above

min
(axis=None, out=None, keepdims=None, initial=None, where=None)¶ Return the minimum of an array or minimum along an axis.
LAXbackend implementation of
amin()
.Original docstring below.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input data.
axis (None or int or tuple of ints, optional) – Axis or axes along which to operate. By default, flattened input is used.
keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 amin method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
initial (scalar, optional) – The maximum value of an output element. Must be present to allow computation on empty slice. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
where (array_like of bool, optional) – Elements to compare for the minimum. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
 Returns
amin – Minimum of a. If axis is None, the result is a scalar value. If axis is given, the result is an array of dimension
a.ndim  1
. Return type
ndarray or scalar

nonzero
(*, size=None, fill_value=None)¶ Return the indices of the elements that are nonzero.
LAXbackend implementation of
nonzero()
.Because the size of the output of
nonzero
is datadependent, the function is not typically compatible with JIT. The JAX version adds the optional size argument which specifies the size of the output arrays: it must be specified statically forjnp.nonzero
to be traced. If specified, the first size nonzero elements will be returned; if there are fewer nonzero elements than size indicates, the result will be padded withfill_value
, which defaults to zero.Original docstring below.
Returns a tuple of arrays, one for each dimension of a, containing the indices of the nonzero elements in that dimension. The values in a are always tested and returned in rowmajor, Cstyle order.
To group the indices by element, rather than dimension, use argwhere, which returns a row for each nonzero element.
Note
When called on a zerod array or scalar,
nonzero(a)
is treated asnonzero(atleast1d(a))
.Deprecated since version 1.17.0: Use atleast1d explicitly if this behavior is deliberate.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input array.
 Returns
tuple_of_arrays – Indices of elements that are nonzero.

(axis=None, dtype=None, out=None, keepdims=None, initial=None, where=None)¶ Return the product of array elements over a given axis.
LAXbackend implementation of
prod()
.Original docstring below.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input data.
axis (None or int or tuple of ints, optional) – Axis or axes along which a product is performed. The default, axis=None, will calculate the product of all the elements in the input array. If axis is negative it counts from the last to the first axis.
dtype (dtype, optional) – The type of the returned array, as well as of the accumulator in which the elements are multiplied. The dtype of a is used by default unless a has an integer dtype of less precision than the default platform integer. In that case, if a is signed then the platform integer is used while if a is unsigned then an unsigned integer of the same precision as the platform integer is used.
keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 prod method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
initial (scalar, optional) – The starting value for this product. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
where (array_like of bool, optional) – Elements to include in the product. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.

ptp
(axis=None, out=None, keepdims=False)¶ Range of values (maximum  minimum) along an axis.
LAXbackend implementation of
ptp()
.Original docstring below.
The name of the function comes from the acronym for ‘peak to peak’.
Warning
ptp preserves the data type of the array. This means the return value for an input of signed integers with n bits (e.g. np.int8, np.int16, etc) is also a signed integer with n bits. In that case, peaktopeak values greater than
2**(n1)1
will be returned as negative values. An example with a workaround is shown below. Parameters
a (array_like) – Input values.
axis (None or int or tuple of ints, optional) – Axis along which to find the peaks. By default, flatten the array. axis may be negative, in which case it counts from the last to the first axis.
keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 ptp method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
 Returns
ptp – A new array holding the result, unless out was specified, in which case a reference to out is returned.
 Return type

ravel

.The JAX version of this function may in some cases return a copy rather than a view of the input.
Original docstring below.
A 1D array, containing the elements of the input, is returned. A copy is made only if needed.
As of NumPy 1.10, the returned array will have the same type as the input array. (for example, a masked array will be returned for a masked array input)
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input array. The elements in a are read in the order specified by order, and packed as a 1D array.
order ({'C','F', 'A', 'K'}, optional) – The elements of a are read using this index order. ‘C’ means to index the elements in rowmajor, Cstyle order, with the last axis index changing fastest, back to the first axis index changing slowest. ‘F’ means to index the elements in columnmajor, Fortranstyle order, with the first index changing fastest, and the last index changing slowest. Note that the ‘C’ and ‘F’ options take no account of the memory layout of the underlying array, and only refer to the order of axis indexing. ‘A’ means to read the elements in Fortranlike index order if a is Fortran contiguous in memory, Clike order otherwise. ‘K’ means to read the elements in the order they occur in memory, except for reversing the data when strides are negative. By default, ‘C’ index order is used.
 Returns
y – y is an array of the same subtype as a, with shape
(a.size,)
. Note that matrices are special cased for backward compatibility, if a is a matrix, then y is a 1D ndarray. Return type

repeat
(repeats, axis=None, *, total_repeat_length=None)¶ Repeat elements of an array.
LAXbackend implementation of
repeat()
.Jax adds the optional total_repeat_length parameter which specifies the total number of repeat, and defaults to sum(repeats). It must be specified for repeat to be compilable. If sum(repeats) is larger than the specified total_repeat_length the remaining values will be discarded. In the case of sum(repeats) being smaller than the specified target length, the final value will be repeated.
Original docstring below.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input array.

.Original docstring below.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Array to be sorted.

kind ({'quicksort', 'mergesort', 'heapsort', 'stable'}, optional) –
Sorting algorithm. The default is ‘quicksort’. Note that both ‘stable’ and ‘mergesort’ use timsort or radix sort under the covers and, in general, the actual implementation will vary with data type. The ‘mergesort’ option is retained for backwards compatibility.
Changed in version 1.15.0.: The ‘stable’ option was added.
order (str or list of str, optional) – When a is an array with fields defined, this argument specifies which fields to compare first, second, etc. A single field can be specified as a string, and not all fields need be specified, but unspecified fields will still be used, in the order in which they come up in the dtype, to break ties.
 Returns
sorted_array – Array of the same type and shape as a.
 Return type

split
(indices_or_sections, axis=0)¶ Split an array into multiple subarrays as views into ary.
LAXbackend implementation of
split()
.The JAX version of this function may in some cases return a copy rather than a view of the input.
Original docstring below.
 Parameters
ary (ndarray) – Array to be divided into subarrays.
indices_or_sections (int or 1D array) –
If indices_or_sections is an integer, N, the array will be divided into N equal arrays along axis. If such a split is not possible, an error is raised.
If indices_or_sections is a 1D array of sorted integers, the entries indicate where along axis the array is split. For example,

In that case, if a is signed then the platform integer is used while if a is unsigned then an unsigned integer of the same precision as the platform integer is used.
keepdims (bool, optional) –
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.
initial (scalar, optional) – Starting value for the sum. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
where (array_like of bool, optional) – Elements to include in the sum. See ~numpy.ufunc.reduce for details.
 Returns
sum_along_axis – An array with the same shape as a, with the specified axis removed. If a is a 0d array, or if axis is None, a scalar is returned. If an output array is specified, a reference to out is returned.
 Return type

swapaxes
(axis1, axis2)¶ Interchange two axes of an array.
LAXbackend implementation of
swapaxes()
.The JAX version of this function may in some cases return a copy rather than a view of the input.
Original docstring below.
 Parameters
 Returns
a_swapped – For NumPy >= 1.10.0, if a is an ndarray, then a view of a is returned; otherwise a new array is created. For earlier NumPy versions a view of a is returned only if the order of the axes is changed, otherwise the input array is returned.
 Return type

take
(indices, axis=None, out=None, mode=None)¶ Take elements from an array along an axis.
LAXbackend implementation of
take()
.Original docstring below.
When axis is not None, this function does the same thing as “fancy” indexing (indexing arrays using arrays); however, it can be easier to use if you need elements along a given axis. A call such as
np.take(arr, indices, axis=3)
is equivalent toarr[:,:,:,indices,...]
.Explained without fancy indexing, this is equivalent to the following use of ndindex, which sets each of
ii
,jj
, andkk
to a tuple of indices:Ni, Nk = a.shape[:axis], a.shape[axis+1:] Nj = indices.shape for ii in ndindex(Ni): for jj in ndindex(Nj): for kk in ndindex(Nk): out[ii + jj + kk] = a[ii + (indices[jj],) + kk]
 Parameters
a (array_like (Ni..., M, Nk...)) – The source array.
indices (array_like (Nj...)) – The indices of the values to extract.
axis (int, optional) – The axis over which to select values. By default, the flattened input array is used.
mode ({'raise', 'wrap', 'clip'}, optional) –
Specifies how outofbounds indices will behave.
’raise’ – raise an error (default)
’wrap’ – wrap around
’clip’ – clip 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.
 Returns
out – The returned array has the same type as a.
 Return type
ndarray (Ni…, Nj…, Nk…)

tile
(reps)¶ Construct an array by repeating A the number of times given by reps.
LAXbackend implementation of
tile()
.Original docstring below.
If reps has length
d
, the result will have dimension ofmax(d, A.ndim)
.If
A.ndim < d
, A is promoted to be ddimensional by prepending new axes. So a shape (3,) array is promoted to (1, 3) for 2D replication, or shape (1, 1, 3) for 3D replication. If this is not the desired behavior, promote A to ddimensions manually before calling this function.If
A.ndim > d
, reps is promoted to A.ndim by prepending 1’s to it. Thus for an A of shape (2, 3, 4, 5), a reps of (2, 2) is treated as (1, 1, 2, 2).Note : Although tile may be used for broadcasting, it is strongly recommended to use numpy’s broadcasting operations and functions.
 Parameters
A (array_like) – The input array.
reps (array_like) – The number of repetitions of A along each axis.
 Returns
c – The tiled output array.

trace
(offset=0, axis1=0, axis2=1, dtype=None, out=None)¶ Return the sum along diagonals of the array.
LAXbackend implementation of
trace()
.Original docstring below.
If a is 2D, the sum along its diagonal with the given offset is returned, i.e., the sum of elements
a[i,i+offset]
for all i.If a has more than two dimensions, then the axes specified by axis1 and axis2 are used to determine the 2D subarrays whose traces are returned. The shape of the resulting array is the same as that of a with axis1 and axis2 removed.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Input array, from which the diagonals are taken.
offset (int, optional) – Offset of the diagonal from the main diagonal. Can be both positive and negative. Defaults to 0.
axis1 (int, optional) – Axes to be used as the first and second axis of the 2D subarrays from which the diagonals should be taken. Defaults are the first two axes of a.
axis2 (int, optional) – Axes to be used as the first and second axis of the 2D subarrays from which the diagonals should be taken. Defaults are the first two axes of a.
dtype (dtype, optional) – Determines the datatype of the returned array and of the accumulator where the elements are summed. If dtype has the value None and a is of integer type of precision less than the default integer precision, then the default integer precision is used. Otherwise, the precision is the same as that of a.
out (ndarray, optional) – Array into which the output is placed. Its type is preserved and it must be of the right shape to hold the output.
 Returns
sum_along_diagonals – If a is 2D, the sum along the diagonal is returned. If a has larger dimensions, then an array of sums along diagonals is returned.
 Return type

var
(axis=None, dtype=None, out=None, ddof=0, keepdims=False, *, where=None)¶ Compute the variance along the specified axis.
LAXbackend implementation of
var()
.Original docstring below.
Returns the variance of the array elements, a measure of the spread of a distribution. The variance is computed for the flattened array by default, otherwise over the specified axis.
 Parameters
a (array_like) – Array containing numbers whose variance is desired. If a is not an array, a conversion is attempted.
axis (None or int or tuple of ints, optional) – Axis or axes along which the variance is computed. The default is to compute the variance of the flattened array.
dtype (datatype, optional) – Type to use in computing the variance. For arrays of integer type the default is float64; for arrays of float types it is the same as the array type.
ddof (int, optional) – “Delta Degrees of Freedom”: the divisor used in the calculation is
N  ddof
, whereN
represents the number of elements. By default ddof is zero.keepdims (bool, optional) –
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 var method of subclasses of ndarray, however any nondefault value will be. If the subclass’ method does not implement keepdims any exceptions will be raised.
 Returns
variance – If
out=None
, returns a new array containing the variance; otherwise, a reference to the output array is returned. Return type
ndarray, see dtype parameter above
