numpy.ma.zeros

numpy.ma.zeros(shape, dtype=float, order='C') = <numpy.ma.core._convert2ma instance at 0x7fac67143170>

Return a new array of given shape and type, filled with zeros.

Parameters:

shape : int or sequence of ints

Shape of the new array, e.g., (2, 3) or 2.

dtype : data-type, optional

The desired data-type for the array, e.g., numpy.int8. Default is numpy.float64.

order : {‘C’, ‘F’}, optional

Whether to store multidimensional data in C- or Fortran-contiguous (row- or column-wise) order in memory.

Returns:

out : ndarray

Array of zeros with the given shape, dtype, and order.
