# xorbits.numpy.bmat#

xorbits.numpy.bmat(obj, ldict=None, gdict=None)#

Build a matrix object from a string, nested sequence, or array.

Parameters
• obj (str or array_like) – Input data. If a string, variables in the current scope may be referenced by name.

• ldict (dict, optional) – A dictionary that replaces local operands in current frame. Ignored if obj is not a string or gdict is None.

• gdict (dict, optional) – A dictionary that replaces global operands in current frame. Ignored if obj is not a string.

Returns

out – Returns a matrix object, which is a specialized 2-D array.

Return type

matrix

`block`

A generalization of this function for N-d arrays, that returns normal ndarrays.

Examples

```>>> A = np.mat('1 1; 1 1')
>>> B = np.mat('2 2; 2 2')
>>> C = np.mat('3 4; 5 6')
>>> D = np.mat('7 8; 9 0')
```

All the following expressions construct the same block matrix:

```>>> np.bmat([[A, B], [C, D]])
matrix([[1, 1, 2, 2],
[1, 1, 2, 2],
[3, 4, 7, 8],
[5, 6, 9, 0]])
>>> np.bmat(np.r_[np.c_[A, B], np.c_[C, D]])
matrix([[1, 1, 2, 2],
[1, 1, 2, 2],
[3, 4, 7, 8],
[5, 6, 9, 0]])
>>> np.bmat('A,B; C,D')
matrix([[1, 1, 2, 2],
[1, 1, 2, 2],
[3, 4, 7, 8],
[5, 6, 9, 0]])
```
