mindspore.numpy.multi_dot¶

mindspore.numpy.multi_dot(arrays)[source]

Computes the dot product of two or more arrays in a single function call, while automatically selecting the fastest evaluation order. multi_dot chains numpy.dot and uses optimal parenthesization of the matrices [1] <en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_chain_multiplication>. Depending on the shapes of the matrices, this can speed up the multiplication a lot. If the first argument is 1-D it is treated as a row vector. If the last argument is 1-D it is treated as a column vector. The other arguments must be 2-D.

Note

Numpy argument out is not supported.

Parameters

arrays (sequence of array_like) – If the first argument is 1-D it is treated as row vector. If the last argument is 1-D it is treated as column vector. The other arguments must be 2-D.

Returns

Tensor, the dot product of the supplied arrays.

Raises

ValueError – arrays are not 2-D.

Supported Platforms:

Ascend GPU CPU

Examples

>>> import mindspore.numpy as np
>>> A = np.ones((10000, 100))
>>> B = np.ones((100, 1000))
>>> C = np.ones((1000, 5))
>>> D = np.ones((5, 333))
>>> output = np.multi_dot([A, B, C, D])
>>> print(output)
