# numpy.ufunc.at¶

`ufunc.``at`(a, indices, b=None)

Performs unbuffered in place operation on operand ‘a’ for elements specified by ‘indices’. For addition ufunc, this method is equivalent to a[indices] += b, except that results are accumulated for elements that are indexed more than once. For example, a[[0,0]] += 1 will only increment the first element once because of buffering, whereas add.at(a, [0,0], 1) will increment the first element twice.

New in version 1.8.0.

Parameters: a : array_like The array to perform in place operation on. indices : array_like or tuple Array like index object or slice object for indexing into first operand. If first operand has multiple dimensions, indices can be a tuple of array like index objects or slice objects. b : array_like Second operand for ufuncs requiring two operands. Operand must be broadcastable over first operand after indexing or slicing.

Examples

Set items 0 and 1 to their negative values:

```>>> a = np.array([1, 2, 3, 4])
>>> np.negative.at(a, [0, 1])
>>> print(a)
array([-1, -2, 3, 4])
```

Increment items 0 and 1, and increment item 2 twice:

```>>> a = np.array([1, 2, 3, 4])
>>> np.add.at(a, [0, 1, 2, 2], 1)
>>> print(a)
array([2, 3, 5, 4])
```

Add items 0 and 1 in first array to second array, and store results in first array:

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