zeros

paddle. zeros ( shape, dtype=None, name=None ) [source]

The OP creates a tensor of specified shape and dtype, and fills it with 0.

Parameters
  • shape (tuple|list|Tensor) – Shape of the Tensor to be created, the data type of shape is int32 or int64.

  • dtype (np.dtype|str, optional) – Data type of output Tensor, it supports bool, float16, float32, float64, int32 and int64. Default: if None, the date type is float32.

  • 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

A tensor of data type dtype with shape shape and all elements set to 0.

Return type

Tensor

Examples

import paddle

data = paddle.zeros(shape=[3, 2], dtype='float32')
# [[0. 0.]
#  [0. 0.]
#  [0. 0.]]
data = paddle.zeros(shape=[2, 2])
# [[0. 0.]
#  [0. 0.]]

# shape is a Tensor
shape = paddle.full(shape=[2], dtype='int32', fill_value=2)
data3 = paddle.zeros(shape=shape, dtype='int32')
# [[0 0]
#  [0 0]]
