- xorbits.numpy.arange([start, ]stop, [step, ]dtype=None, *, like=None)#
Return evenly spaced values within a given interval.
arangecan be called with a varying number of positional arguments:
arange(stop): Values are generated within the half-open interval
[0, stop)(in other words, the interval including start but excluding stop).
arange(start, stop): Values are generated within the half-open interval
arange(start, stop, step)Values are generated within the half-open interval
[start, stop), with spacing between values given by
For integer arguments the function is roughly equivalent to the Python built-in
range, but returns an ndarray rather than a
When using a non-integer step, such as 0.1, it is often better to use numpy.linspace.
See the Warning sections below for more information.
start (integer or real, optional) – Start of interval. The interval includes this value. The default start value is 0.
stop (integer or real) – End of interval. The interval does not include this value, except in some cases where step is not an integer and floating point round-off affects the length of out.
step (integer or real, optional) – Spacing between values. For any output out, this is the distance between two adjacent values,
out[i+1] - out[i]. The default step size is 1. If step is specified as a position argument, start must also be given.
dtype (dtype, optional) – The type of the output array. If dtype is not given, infer the data type from the other input arguments.
like (array_like, optional) –
Reference object to allow the creation of arrays which are not NumPy arrays. If an array-like passed in as
__array_function__protocol, the result will be defined by it. In this case, it ensures the creation of an array object compatible with that passed in via this argument.
New in version 1.20.0(numpy).
arange – Array of evenly spaced values.
For floating point arguments, the length of the result is
ceil((stop - start)/step). Because of floating point overflow, this rule may result in the last element of out being greater than stop.
- Return type
The length of the output might not be numerically stable.
Another stability issue is due to the internal implementation of numpy.arange. The actual step value used to populate the array is
dtype(start + step) - dtype(start)and not step. Precision loss can occur here, due to casting or due to using floating points when start is much larger than step. This can lead to unexpected behaviour. For example:
>>> np.arange(0, 5, 0.5, dtype=int) array([0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]) >>> np.arange(-3, 3, 0.5, dtype=int) array([-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8])
In such cases, the use of numpy.linspace should be preferred.
rangegenerates Python built-in integers that have arbitrary size, while numpy.arange produces numpy.int32 or numpy.int64 numbers. This may result in incorrect results for large integer values:
>>> power = 40 >>> modulo = 10000 >>> x1 = [(n ** power) % modulo for n in range(8)] >>> x2 = [(n ** power) % modulo for n in np.arange(8)] >>> print(x1) [0, 1, 7776, 8801, 6176, 625, 6576, 4001] # correct >>> print(x2) [0, 1, 7776, 7185, 0, 5969, 4816, 3361] # incorrect
Evenly spaced numbers with careful handling of endpoints.
Arrays of evenly spaced numbers in N-dimensions.
Grid-shaped arrays of evenly spaced numbers in N-dimensions.
>>> np.arange(3) array([0, 1, 2]) >>> np.arange(3.0) array([ 0., 1., 2.]) >>> np.arange(3,7) array([3, 4, 5, 6]) >>> np.arange(3,7,2) array([3, 5])
