- numpy.cumsum(a, axis=None, dtype=None, out=None)¶
Return the cumulative sum of the elements along a given axis.
a : array_like
axis : int, optional
Axis along which the cumulative sum is computed. The default (None) is to compute the cumsum over the flattened array.
dtype : dtype, optional
Type of the returned array and of the accumulator in which the elements are summed. If dtype is not specified, it defaults to the dtype of a, unless a has an integer dtype with a precision less than that of the default platform integer. In that case, the default platform integer is used.
out : ndarray, optional
Alternative output array in which to place the result. It must have the same shape and buffer length as the expected output but the type will be cast if necessary. See doc.ufuncs (Section “Output arguments”) for more details.
cumsum_along_axis : ndarray.
A new array holding the result is returned unless out is specified, in which case a reference to out is returned. The result has the same size as a, and the same shape as a if axis is not None or a is a 1-d array.
Arithmetic is modular when using integer types, and no error is raised on overflow.
>>> a = np.array([[1,2,3], [4,5,6]]) >>> a array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]) >>> np.cumsum(a) array([ 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21]) >>> np.cumsum(a, dtype=float) # specifies type of output value(s) array([ 1., 3., 6., 10., 15., 21.])
>>> np.cumsum(a,axis=0) # sum over rows for each of the 3 columns array([[1, 2, 3], [5, 7, 9]]) >>> np.cumsum(a,axis=1) # sum over columns for each of the 2 rows array([[ 1, 3, 6], [ 4, 9, 15]])
