shares_memory(a, b, max_work=None)¶
Determine if two arrays share memory
a, b : ndarray
max_work : int, optional
Effort to spend on solving the overlap problem (maximum number of candidate solutions to consider). The following special values are recognized:
- max_work=MAY_SHARE_EXACT (default)
The problem is solved exactly. In this case, the function returns True only if there is an element shared between the arrays.
Only the memory bounds of a and b are checked.
out : bool
>>> np.may_share_memory(np.array([1,2]), np.array([5,8,9])) False
