inner

paddle. inner ( x, y, name=None ) [source]

Inner product of two input Tensor.

Ordinary inner product for 1-D Tensors, in higher dimensions a sum product over the last axes.

Parameters
  • x (Tensor) – An N-D Tensor or a Scalar Tensor. If its not a scalar Tensor, its last dimensions must match y’s.

  • y (Tensor) – An N-D Tensor or a Scalar Tensor. If its not a scalar Tensor, its last dimensions must match x’s.

  • name (str, optional) – The default value is None. Normally there is no need for user to set this property. For more information, please refer to Name

Returns

The inner-product Tensor, the output shape is x.shape[:-1] + y.shape[:-1].

Return type

Tensor

Examples

import paddle
x = paddle.arange(1, 7).reshape((2, 3)).astype('float32')
y = paddle.arange(1, 10).reshape((3, 3)).astype('float32')
out = paddle.inner(x, y)
print(out)
#        ([[14, 32, 50],
#         [32, 77, 122]])
