About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

broadcastArray

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Broadcast an ndarray to a specified shape.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/ndarray-base-broadcast-array

Usage

var broadcastArray = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-base-broadcast-array' );
broadcastArray( arr, shape )

Broadcasts an ndarray to a specified shape.

var array = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-array' );

// Create a 2x2 ndarray:
var x = array( [ [ 1, 2 ], [ 3, 4 ] ] );
// returns <ndarray>

// Broadcast to a 2x2x2 ndarray:
var y = broadcastArray( x, [ 2, 2, 2 ] );
// returns <ndarray>

Notes

  • The function throws an error if a provided ndarray is incompatible with a provided shape.
  • The returned ndarray is a view on the input ndarray data buffer. The view is typically not contiguous. As more than one element of a returned view may refer to the same memory location, writing to the view may affect multiple elements. If you need to write to the returned ndarray, copy the ndarray before performing operations which may mutate elements.
  • The returned ndarray is a "base" ndarray, and, thus, the returned ndarray does not perform bounds checking or afford any of the guarantees of the non-base ndarray constructor. The primary intent of this function is to broadcast an ndarray-like object within internal implementations and to do so with minimal overhead.
  • The function always returns a new ndarray instance even if the input ndarray shape and the desired shape are the same.

Examples

var array = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-array' );
var numel = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-base-numel' );
var ind2sub = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-ind2sub' );
var broadcastArray = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-base-broadcast-array' );

// Create a 2x2 array:
var x = array( [ [ 1, 2 ], [ 3, 4 ] ] );
// returns <ndarray>

// Broadcast the array to 3x2x2:
var y = broadcastArray( x, [ 3, 2, 2 ] );
// returns <ndarray>

// Retrieve the shape:
var sh = y.shape;
// returns [ 3, 2, 2 ]

// Retrieve the number of elements:
var N = numel( sh );

// Loop through the array elements...
var sub;
var v;
var i;
for ( i = 0; i < N; i++ ) {
    v = y.iget( i );
    sub = ind2sub( sh, i );
    console.log( 'Y[%s] = %d', sub.join( ', ' ), v );
}

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
