# mxnet.np.tile¶

tile(A, reps)

Construct an array by repeating A the number of times given by reps.

If reps has length d, the result will have dimension of max(d, A.ndim).

If A.ndim < d, A is promoted to be d-dimensional by prepending new axes. So a shape (3,) array is promoted to (1, 3) for 2-D replication, or shape (1, 1, 3) for 3-D replication. If this is not the desired behavior, promote A to d-dimensions manually before calling this function.

If A.ndim > d, reps is promoted to A.ndim by pre-pending 1’s to it. Thus for an A of shape (2, 3, 4, 5), a reps of (2, 2) is treated as (1, 1, 2, 2).

Parameters
• A (ndarray or scalar) – An input array or a scalar to repeat.

• reps (a single integer or tuple of integers) – The number of repetitions of A along each axis.

Returns

c – The tiled output array.

Return type

ndarray

Examples

>>> a = np.array([0, 1, 2])
>>> np.tile(a, 2)
array([0., 1., 2., 0., 1., 2.])
>>> np.tile(a, (2, 2))
array([[0., 1., 2., 0., 1., 2.],
[0., 1., 2., 0., 1., 2.]])
>>> np.tile(a, (2, 1, 2))
array([[[0., 1., 2., 0., 1., 2.]],
[[0., 1., 2., 0., 1., 2.]]])

>>> b = np.array([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
>>> np.tile(b, 2)
array([[1., 2., 1., 2.],
[3., 4., 3., 4.]])
>>> np.tile(b, (2, 1))
array([[1., 2.],
[3., 4.],
[1., 2.],
[3., 4.]])

>>> c = np.array([1,2,3,4])
>>> np.tile(c,(4,1))
array([[1., 2., 3., 4.],
[1., 2., 3., 4.],
[1., 2., 3., 4.],
[1., 2., 3., 4.]])


Scalar as input:

>>> np.tile(2, 3)
array([2, 2, 2]) # repeating integer 2
