stack

paddle. stack ( x, axis=0, name=None ) [source]

This OP stacks all the input tensors x along axis dimemsion. All tensors must be of the same shape and same dtype.

For example, given N tensors of shape [A, B], if axis == 0, the shape of stacked tensor is [N, A, B]; if axis == 1, the shape of stacked tensor is [A, N, B], etc.

Case 1:

  Input:
    x[0].shape = [1, 2]
    x[0].data = [ [1.0 , 2.0 ] ]
    x[1].shape = [1, 2]
    x[1].data = [ [3.0 , 4.0 ] ]
    x[2].shape = [1, 2]
    x[2].data = [ [5.0 , 6.0 ] ]

  Attrs:
    axis = 0

  Output:
    Out.dims = [3, 1, 2]
    Out.data =[ [ [1.0, 2.0] ],
                [ [3.0, 4.0] ],
                [ [5.0, 6.0] ] ]


Case 2:

  Input:
    x[0].shape = [1, 2]
    x[0].data = [ [1.0 , 2.0 ] ]
    x[1].shape = [1, 2]
    x[1].data = [ [3.0 , 4.0 ] ]
    x[2].shape = [1, 2]
    x[2].data = [ [5.0 , 6.0 ] ]


  Attrs:
    axis = 1 or axis = -2  # If axis = -2, axis = axis+ndim(x[0])+1 = -2+2+1 = 1.

  Output:
    Out.shape = [1, 3, 2]
    Out.data =[ [ [1.0, 2.0]
                  [3.0, 4.0]
                  [5.0, 6.0] ] ]
Parameters
  • x (list[Tensor]|tuple[Tensor]) – Input x can be a list or tuple of tensors, the Tensors in x must be of the same shape and dtype. Supported data types: float32, float64, int32, int64.

  • axis (int, optional) – The axis along which all inputs are stacked. axis range is [-(R+1), R+1), where R is the number of dimensions of the first input tensor x[0]. If axis < 0, axis = axis+R+1. The default value of axis is 0.

  • name (str, optional) – Please refer to Name, Default None.

Returns

The stacked tensor with same data type as input.

Return type

Tensor

Example

import paddle

x1 = paddle.to_tensor([[1.0, 2.0]])
x2 = paddle.to_tensor([[3.0, 4.0]])
x3 = paddle.to_tensor([[5.0, 6.0]])

out = paddle.stack([x1, x2, x3], axis=0)
print(out.shape)  # [3, 1, 2]
print(out)
# [[[1., 2.]],
#  [[3., 4.]],
#  [[5., 6.]]]

out = paddle.stack([x1, x2, x3], axis=-2)
print(out.shape)  # [1, 3, 2]
print(out)
# [[[1., 2.],
#   [3., 4.],
#   [5., 6.]]]
