# numpy.split¶

`numpy.``split`(ary, indices_or_sections, axis=0)[source]

Split an array into multiple sub-arrays.

Parameters: ary : ndarray Array to be divided into sub-arrays. indices_or_sections : int or 1-D array If indices_or_sections is an integer, N, the array will be divided into N equal arrays along axis. If such a split is not possible, an error is raised. If indices_or_sections is a 1-D array of sorted integers, the entries indicate where along axis the array is split. For example, `[2, 3]` would, for `axis=0`, result in ary[:2] ary[2:3] ary[3:] If an index exceeds the dimension of the array along axis, an empty sub-array is returned correspondingly. axis : int, optional The axis along which to split, default is 0. sub-arrays : list of ndarrays A list of sub-arrays. ValueError If indices_or_sections is given as an integer, but a split does not result in equal division.

`array_split`
Split an array into multiple sub-arrays of equal or near-equal size. Does not raise an exception if an equal division cannot be made.
`hsplit`
Split array into multiple sub-arrays horizontally (column-wise).
`vsplit`
Split array into multiple sub-arrays vertically (row wise).
`dsplit`
Split array into multiple sub-arrays along the 3rd axis (depth).
`concatenate`
Join a sequence of arrays along an existing axis.
`stack`
Join a sequence of arrays along a new axis.
`hstack`
Stack arrays in sequence horizontally (column wise).
`vstack`
Stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise).
`dstack`
Stack arrays in sequence depth wise (along third dimension).

Examples

```>>> x = np.arange(9.0)
>>> np.split(x, 3)
[array([ 0.,  1.,  2.]), array([ 3.,  4.,  5.]), array([ 6.,  7.,  8.])]
```
```>>> x = np.arange(8.0)
>>> np.split(x, [3, 5, 6, 10])
[array([ 0.,  1.,  2.]),
array([ 3.,  4.]),
array([ 5.]),
array([ 6.,  7.]),
array([], dtype=float64)]
