MultiDimensional Array (ndarray)¶

class
cupy.
ndarray
¶ Multidimensional array on a CUDA device.
This class implements a subset of methods of
numpy.ndarray
. The difference is that this class allocates the array content on the current GPU device.Parameters:  shape (tuple of ints) – Length of axes.
 dtype – Data type. It must be an argument of
numpy.dtype
.  memptr (cupy.cuda.MemoryPointer) – Pointer to the array content head.
 strides (tuple of ints) – The strides for axes.
 order ({'C', 'F'}) – Rowmajor (Cstyle) or columnmajor (Fortranstyle) order.
Variables:  base (None or cupy.ndarray) – Base array from which this array is created as a view.
 data (cupy.cuda.MemoryPointer) – Pointer to the array content head.
 dtype (numpy.dtype) –
Dtype object of element type.
See also
 size (int) –
Number of elements this array holds.
This is equivalent to product over the shape tuple.

T
¶ Shapereversed view of the array.
If ndim < 2, then this is just a reference to the array itself.

argmax
()¶ Returns the indices of the maximum along a given axis.
See also
cupy.argmax()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.argmax()

argmin
()¶ Returns the indices of the minimum along a given axis.

cupy.argmin()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.argmin()

astype
()¶ Casts the array to given data type.
Parameters:  dtype – Type specifier.
 copy (bool) – If it is False and no cast happens, then this method returns the array itself. Otherwise, a copy is returned.
Returns: If
copy
is False and no cast is required, then the array itself is returned. Otherwise, it returns a (possibly casted) copy of the array.Note
This method currently does not support
order
,casting
, andsubok
arguments.See also

See also
cupy.clip()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.clip()

copy
()¶ Returns a copy of the array.

for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.copy()

cstruct
¶ C representation of the array.
This property is used for sending an array to CUDA kernels. The type of returned C structure is different for different dtypes and ndims. The definition of C type is written in

bycupy.load()
.

attributes. All of these are readonly. Accessing by indexes is also supported.See also

flatten
()¶ Returns a copy of the array flatten into one dimension.
It currently supports Corder only.
Returns: A copy of the array with one dimension. Return type: cupy.ndarray See also

get
()¶ Returns a copy of the array on host memory.
Parameters: stream (cupy.cuda.Stream) – CUDA stream object. If it is given, the copy runs asynchronously. Otherwise, the copy is synchronous. Returns: Copy of the array on host memory. Return type: numpy.ndarray

itemsize
¶ Size of each element in bytes.
See also

max
()¶ Returns the maximum along a given axis.
See also
cupy.amax()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.max()

mean
()¶ Returns the mean along a given axis.
See also

for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.mean()

min
()¶ Returns the minimum along a given axis.
See also
cupy.amin()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.min()

nbytes
¶ Size of whole elements in bytes.
It does not count skips between elements.

ndim
¶ Number of dimensions.
a.ndim
is equivalent tolen(a.shape)
.See also

nonzero
()¶ Return the indices of the elements that are nonzero.
Returned Array is containing the indices of the nonzero elements in that dimension.
Returns: Indices of elements that are nonzero. Return type: tuple of arrays See also

prod
()¶ Returns the product along a given axis.

cupy.ravel()
for full documentation,numpy.ndarray.ravel()

reduced_view
()¶ Returns a view of the array with minimum number of dimensions.
Parameters: dtype – Data type specifier. If it is given, then the memory sequence is reinterpreted as the new type. Returns: A view of the array with reduced dimensions. Return type: cupy.ndarray

repeat
