# jax.numpy.tileÂ¶

jax.numpy.tile(A, reps)[source]Â¶

Construct an array by repeating A the number of times given by reps.

LAX-backend implementation of tile(). Original docstring below.

If reps has length d, the result will have dimension of max(d, A.ndim).

If A.ndim < d, A is promoted to be d-dimensional by prepending new axes. So a shape (3,) array is promoted to (1, 3) for 2-D replication, or shape (1, 1, 3) for 3-D replication. If this is not the desired behavior, promote A to d-dimensions manually before calling this function.

If A.ndim > d, reps is promoted to A.ndim by pre-pending 1â€™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 numpyâ€™s broadcasting operations and functions.

Parameters
• A (array_like) â€“ The input array.

• reps (array_like) â€“ The number of repetitions of A along each axis.

Returns

c â€“ The tiled output array.

Return type

ndarray

repeat()

Repeat elements of an array.

broadcast_to()

Broadcast an array to a new shape

Examples

>>> a = np.array([0, 1, 2])
>>> np.tile(a, 2)
array([0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2])
>>> np.tile(a, (2, 2))
array([[0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2],
[0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2]])
>>> np.tile(a, (2, 1, 2))
array([[[0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2]],
[[0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2]]])

>>> b = np.array([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
>>> np.tile(b, 2)
array([[1, 2, 1, 2],
[3, 4, 3, 4]])
>>> np.tile(b, (2, 1))
array([[1, 2],
[3, 4],
[1, 2],
[3, 4]])

>>> c = np.array([1,2,3,4])
>>> np.tile(c,(4,1))
array([[1, 2, 3, 4],
[1, 2, 3, 4],
[1, 2, 3, 4],
[1, 2, 3, 4]])
