torch.Tensor

A torch.Tensor is a multi-dimensional matrix containing elements of a single data type.

Torch defines eight CPU tensor types and eight GPU tensor types:

Data type dtype CPU tensor GPU tensor
32-bit floating point torch.float32 or torch.float torch.FloatTensor torch.cuda.FloatTensor
64-bit floating point torch.float64 or torch.double torch.DoubleTensor torch.cuda.DoubleTensor
16-bit floating point torch.float16 or torch.half torch.HalfTensor torch.cuda.HalfTensor
8-bit integer (unsigned) torch.uint8 torch.ByteTensor torch.cuda.ByteTensor
8-bit integer (signed) torch.int8 torch.CharTensor torch.cuda.CharTensor
16-bit integer (signed) torch.int16 or torch.short torch.ShortTensor torch.cuda.ShortTensor
32-bit integer (signed) torch.int32 or torch.int torch.IntTensor torch.cuda.IntTensor
64-bit integer (signed) torch.int64 or torch.long torch.LongTensor torch.cuda.LongTensor

torch.Tensor is an alias for the default tensor type (torch.FloatTensor).

A tensor can be constructed from a Python list or sequence using the torch.tensor() constructor:

>>> torch.tensor([[1., -1.], [1., -1.]])
tensor([[ 1.0000, -1.0000],
        [ 1.0000, -1.0000]])
>>> torch.tensor(np.array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]))
tensor([[ 1,  2,  3],
        [ 4,  5,  6]])

Warning

torch.tensor() always copies data. If you have a Tensor data and just want to change its requires_grad flag, use requires_grad_() or detach() to avoid a copy. If you have a numpy array and want to avoid a copy, use torch.as_tensor().

An tensor of specific data type can be constructed by passing a torch.dtype and/or a torch.device to a constructor or tensor creation op:

>>> torch.zeros([2, 4], dtype=torch.int32)
tensor([[ 0,  0,  0,  0],
        [ 0,  0,  0,  0]], dtype=torch.int32)
>>> cuda0 = torch.device('cuda:0')
>>> torch.ones([2, 4], dtype=torch.float64, device=cuda0)
tensor([[ 1.0000,  1.0000,  1.0000,  1.0000],
        [ 1.0000,  1.0000,  1.0000,  1.0000]], dtype=torch.float64, device='cuda:0')

The contents of a tensor can be accessed and modified using Python’s indexing and slicing notation:

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])
>>> print(x[1][2])
tensor(6)
>>> x[0][1] = 8
>>> print(x)
tensor([[ 1,  8,  3],
        [ 4,  5,  6]])

Use torch.Tensor.item() to get a Python number from a tensor containing a single value:

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1]])
>>> x
tensor([[ 1]])
>>> x.item()
1
>>> x = torch.tensor(2.5)
>>> x
tensor(2.5000)
>>> x.item()
2.5

A tensor can be created with requires_grad=True so that torch.autograd records operations on them for automatic differentiation.

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1., -1.], [1., 1.]], requires_grad=True)
>>> out = x.pow(2).sum()
>>> out.backward()
>>> x.grad
tensor([[ 2.0000, -2.0000],
        [ 2.0000,  2.0000]])

Each tensor has an associated torch.Storage, which holds its data. The tensor class provides multi-dimensional, strided view of a storage and defines numeric operations on it.

Note

For more information on the torch.dtype, torch.device, and torch.layout attributes of a torch.Tensor, see Tensor Attributes.

Note

Methods which mutate a tensor are marked with an underscore suffix. For example, torch.FloatTensor.abs_() computes the absolute value in-place and returns the modified tensor, while torch.FloatTensor.abs() computes the result in a new tensor.

Note

To change an existing tensor’s torch.device and/or torch.dtype, consider using to() method on the tensor.

class torch.Tensor

There are a few main ways to create a tensor, depending on your use case.

  • To create a tensor with pre-existing data, use torch.tensor().
  • To create a tensor with specific size, use torch.* tensor creation ops (see Creation Ops).
  • To create a tensor with the same size (and similar types) as another tensor, use torch.*_like tensor creation ops (see Creation Ops).
  • To create a tensor with similar type but different size as another tensor, use tensor.new_* creation ops.
new_tensor(data, dtype=None, device=None, requires_grad=False) → Tensor

Returns a new Tensor with data as the tensor data. By default, the returned Tensor has the same torch.dtype and torch.device as this tensor.

Warning

new_tensor() always copies data. If you have a Tensor data and want to avoid a copy, use torch.Tensor.requires_grad_() or torch.Tensor.detach(). If you have a numpy array and want to avoid a copy, use torch.from_numpy().

expand(*sizes) → Tensor

Returns a new view of the self tensor with singleton dimensions expanded to a larger size.

Passing -1 as the size for a dimension means not changing the size of that dimension.

Tensor can be also expanded to a larger number of dimensions, and the new ones will be appended at the front. For the new dimensions, the size cannot be set to -1.

Expanding a tensor does not allocate new memory, but only creates a new view on the existing tensor where a dimension of size one is expanded to a larger size by setting the stride to 0. Any dimension of size 1 can be expanded to an arbitrary value without allocating new memory.

Parameters:*sizes (torch.Size or int...) – the desired expanded size

Example:

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1], [2], [3]])
>>> x.size()
torch.Size([3, 1])
>>> x.expand(3, 4)

        [  5.,   6.,   7.]])
index_copy_(dim, index, tensor) → Tensor

Copies the elements of tensor into the self tensor by selecting the indices in the order given in index. For example, if dim == 0 and index[i] == j, then the ith row of tensor is copied to the jth row of self.

put_(indices, tensor, accumulate=False) → Tensor

Copies the elements from tensor into the positions specified by indices. For the purpose of indexing, the self tensor is treated as if it were a 1-D tensor.

If accumulate is True, the elements in tensor are added to self. If accumulate is False, the behavior is undefined if indices contain duplicate elements.

Parameters:
  • indices (LongTensor) – the indices into self
  • tensor (Tensor) – the tensor containing values to copy from
  • accumulate (bool) – whether to accumulate into self

Example:

>>> src = torch.tensor([[4, 3, 5],
                        [6, 7, 8]])
>>> src.put_(torch.tensor([1, 3]), torch.tensor([9, 10]))
tensor([[  4,   9,   5],
        [ 10,   7,   8]])
qr() -> (Tensor, Tensor)

See torch.qr()

random_(from=0, to=None, *, generator=None) → Tensor

Fills self tensor with numbers sampled from the discrete uniform distribution over [from, to - 1]. If not specified, the values are usually only bounded by self tensor’s data type. However, for floating point types, if unspecified, range will be [0, 2^mantissa] to ensure that every value is representable. For example, torch.tensor(1, dtype=torch.double).random_() will be uniform in [0, 2^53].

reciprocal() → Tensor

See torch.reciprocal()

repeat(*sizes) → Tensor

Repeats this tensor along the specified dimensions.

Unlike expand(), this function copies the tensor’s data.

Warning

torch.repeat() behaves differently from numpy.repeat, but is more similar to numpy.tile.

Parameters:sizes (torch.Size or int...) – The number of times to repeat this tensor along each dimension

Example:

>>> x = torch.tensor([1, 2, 3])
>>> x.repeat(4, 2)
tensor([[ 1,  2,  3,  1,  2,  3],
        [ 1,  2,  3,  1,  2,  3],
        [ 1,  2,  3,  1,  2,  3],
        [ 1,  2,  3,  1,  2,  3]])
>>> x.repeat(4, 2, 1).size()
torch.Size([4, 2, 3])
requires_grad_(requires_grad=True) → Tensor

Change if autograd should record operations on this tensor: sets this tensor’s requires_grad attribute in-place. Returns this tensor.

require_grad_()’s main use case is to tell autograd to begin recording operations on a Tensor tensor. If tensor has requires_grad=False (because it was obtained through a DataLoader, or required preprocessing or initialization), tensor.requires_grad_() makes it so that autograd will begin to record operations on tensor.

Parameters:requires_grad (bool) – If autograd should record operations on this tensor. Default: True.

Example:

>>> # Let's say we want to preprocess some saved weights and use
>>> # the result as new weights.
>>> saved_weights = [0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.25]
>>> loaded_weights = torch.tensor(saved_weights)
>>> weights = preprocess(loaded_weights)  # some function
>>> weights
tensor([-0.5503,  0.4926, -2.1158, -0.8303])

>>> # Now, start to record operations done to weights
>>> weights.requires_grad_()
>>> out = weights.pow(2).sum()
>>> out.backward()
>>> weights.grad
tensor([-1.1007,  0.9853, -4.2316, -1.6606])
reshape(*shape) → Tensor

Returns a tensor with the same data and number of elements as self, but with the specified shape.

Parameters:shape (tuple of python:ints or int...) – the desired shape

See torch.reshape()

resize_(*sizes) → Tensor

Resizes self tensor to the specified size. If the number of elements is larger than the current storage size, then the underlying storage is resized to fit the new number of elements. If the number of elements is smaller, the underlying storage is not changed. Existing elements are preserved but any new memory is uninitialized.

Parameters:sizes (torch.Size or int...) – the desired size

Example:

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1, 2], [3, 4], [5, 6]])
>>> x.resize_(2, 2)
tensor([[ 1,  2],
        [ 3,  4]])
resize_as_(tensor) → Tensor

Resizes the self tensor to be the same size as the specified tensor. This is equivalent to self.resize_(tensor.size()).

rsqrt() → Tensor

See torch.rsqrt()

rsqrt_() → Tensor

In-place version of rsqrt()

scatter_(dim, index, src) → Tensor

Writes all values from the tensor src into self at the indices specified in the index tensor. For each value in src, its output index is specified by its index in src for dimension != dim and by the corresponding value in index for dimension = dim.

For a 3-D tensor, self is updated as:

self[index[i][j][k]][j][k] = src[i][j][k]  # if dim == 0
self[i][index[i][j][k]][k] = src[i][j][k]  # if dim == 1
self[i][j][index[i][j][k]] = src[i][j][k]  # if dim == 2

This is the reverse operation of the manner described in gather().

self, index and src should have same number of dimensions. It is also required that index.size(d) <= src.size(d) for all dimensions d, and that index.size(d) <= self.size(d) for all dimensions d != dim.

Moreover, as for gather(), the values of index must be between 0 and (self.size(dim) -1) inclusive, and all values in a row along the specified dimension dim must be unique.

Parameters:
  • dim (int) – the axis along which to index
  • index (LongTensor) – the indices of elements to scatter
  • src (Tensor or float) – the source element(s) to scatter

Example:

>>> x = torch.rand(2, 5)
>>> x
tensor([[ 0.3992,  0.2908,  0.9044,  0.4850,  0.6004],
        [ 0.5735,  0.9006,  0.6797,  0.4152,  0.1732]])
>>> torch.zeros(3, 5).scatter_(0, torch.tensor([[0, 1, 2, 0, 0], [2, 0, 0, 1, 2]]), x)
tensor([[ 0.3992,  0.9006,  0.6797,  0.4850,  0.6004],
        [ 0.0000,  0.2908,  0.0000,  0.4152,  0.0000],
        [ 0.5735,  0.0000,  0.9044,  0.0000,  0.1732]])

>>> z = torch.zeros(2, 4).scatter_(1, torch.tensor([[2], [3]]), 1.23)
>>> z
tensor([[ 0.0000,  0.0000,  1.2300,  0.0000],
        [ 0.0000,  0.0000,  0.0000,  1.2300]])
select(dim, index) → Tensor

Slices the self tensor along the selected dimension at the given index. This function returns a tensor with the given dimension removed.

Parameters:
  • dim (int) – the dimension to slice
  • index (int) – the index to select with

Note

select() is equivalent to slicing. For example, tensor.select(0, index) is equivalent to tensor[index] and tensor.select(2, index) is equivalent to tensor[:,:,index].

set_(source=None, storage_offset=0, size=None, stride=None) → Tensor

Sets the underlying storage, size, and strides. If source is a tensor, self tensor will share the same storage and have the same size and strides as source. Changes to elements in one tensor will be reflected in the other.

If source is a Storage, the method sets the underlying storage, offset, size, and stride.

Parameters:
  • source (Tensor or Storage) – the tensor or storage to use
  • storage_offset (int, optional) – the offset in the storage
  • size (torch.Size, optional) – the desired size. Defaults to the size of the source.
  • stride (tuple, optional) – the desired stride. Defaults to C-contiguous strides.
share_memory_()[source]

Moves the underlying storage to shared memory.

This is a no-op if the underlying storage is already in shared memory and for CUDA tensors. Tensors in shared memory cannot be resized.

stride(dim) → tuple or int

Returns the stride of self tensor.

to(*args, **kwargs) → Tensor

Performs Tensor dtype and/or device conversion. A torch.dtype and torch.device are inferred from the arguments of self.to(*args, **kwargs).

Note

If the self Tensor already has the correct torch.dtype and torch.device, then self is returned. Otherwise, the returned tensor is a copy of self with the desired torch.dtype and torch.device.

Here are the ways to call to:

to(dtype) → Tensor

Returns a Tensor with the specified dtype

to(device=None, dtype=None, non_blocking=False) → Tensor

Returns a Tensor with the specified device and (optional) dtype. If dtype is None it is inferred to be self.dtype. When non_blocking, tries to convert asynchronously with respect to the host if possible, e.g., converting a CPU Tensor with pinned memory to a CUDA Tensor.

to(other, non_blocking=False) → Tensor

Returns a Tensor with same torch.dtype and torch.device as the Tensor other. When non_blocking, tries to convert asynchronously with respect to the host if possible, e.g., converting a CPU Tensor with pinned memory to a CUDA Tensor.

Example:

>>> tensor = torch.randn(2, 2)  # Initially dtype=float32, device=cpu
>>> tensor.to(torch.float64)
tensor([[-0.5044,  0.0005],
        [ 0.3310, -0.0584]], dtype=torch.float64)

>>> cuda0 = torch.device('cuda:0')
>>> tensor.to(cuda0)
tensor([[-0.5044,  0.0005],
        [ 0.3310, -0.0584]], device='cuda:0')

>>> tensor.to(cuda0, dtype=torch.float64)
tensor([[-0.5044,  0.0005],
        [ 0.3310, -0.0584]], dtype=torch.float64, device='cuda:0')

>>> other = torch.randn((), dtype=torch.float64, device=cuda0)
>>> tensor.to(other, non_blocking=True)

type(dtype=None, non_blocking=False, **kwargs) → str or Tensor

Returns the type if dtype is not provided, else casts this object to the specified type.

If this is already of the correct type, no copy is performed and the original object is returned.

Parameters:
  • dtype (type or string) – The desired type
  • non_blocking (bool) – If True, and the source is in pinned memory and destination is on the GPU or vice versa, the copy is performed asynchronously with respect to the host. Otherwise, the argument has no effect.
  • **kwargs – For compatibility, may contain the key async in place of the non_blocking argument. The async arg is deprecated.
type_as(tensor) → Tensor

Returns this tensor cast to the type of the given tensor.

This is a no-op if the tensor is already of the correct type. This is equivalent to:

self.type(tensor.type())
Params:
tensor (Tensor): the tensor which has the desired type
unfold(dim, size, step) → Tensor

Returns a tensor which contains all slices of size size from self tensor in the dimension dim.

Step between two slices is given by step.

If sizedim is the size of dimension dim for self, the size of dimension dim in the returned tensor will be (sizedim - size) / step + 1.

An additional dimension of size size is appended in the returned tensor.

Parameters:
  • dim (int) – dimension in which unfolding happens
  • size (int) – the size of each slice that is unfolded
  • step (int) – the step between each slice

Example:

>>> x = torch.arange(1., 8)
>>> x
tensor([ 1.,  2.,  3.,  4.,  5.,  6.,  7.])
>>> x.unfold(0, 2, 1)
tensor([[ 1.,  2.],
        [ 2.,  3.],
        [ 3.,  4.],
        [ 4.,  5.],
        [ 5.,  6.],
        [ 6.,  7.]])

        [ 3.,  4.],
        [ 5.,  6.]])

unique(sorted=False, return_inverse=False)[source]

Returns the unique scalar elements of the tensor as a 1-D tensor.

See torch.unique()

See torch.unsqueeze()

unsqueeze_(dim) → Tensor

In-place version of unsqueeze()

var(dim=None, unbiased=True, keepdim=False) → Tensor

See torch.var()

view(*args) → Tensor

Returns a new tensor with the same data as the self tensor but of a different size.

The returned tensor shares the same data and must have the same number of elements, but may have a different size. For a tensor to be viewed, the new view size must be compatible with its original size and stride, i.e., each new view dimension must either be a subspace of an original dimension, or only span across original dimensions \(d, d+1, \dots, d+k\) that satisfy the following contiguity-like condition that \(\forall i = 0, \dots, k-1\),

\[stride[i] = stride[i+1] \times size[i+1]\]

Otherwise, contiguous() needs to be called before the tensor can be viewed.

Parameters:args (torch.Size or int...) – the desired size

Example:

>>> x = torch.randn(4, 4)
>>> x.size()
torch.Size([4, 4])
>>> y = x.view(16)
>>> y.size()
torch.Size([16])
>>> z = x.view(-1, 8)  # the size -1 is inferred from other dimensions
>>> z.size()
torch.Size([2, 8])
view_as(other) → Tensor[source]

View this tensor as the same size as other. self.view_as(other) is equivalent to self.view(other.size()).

Parameters:other (torch.Tensor) – The result tensor has the same size as other.size().

>>> a.all()
False
all(dim, keepdim=False, out=None) → Tensor

Returns True if all elements in each row of the tensor in the given dimension dim are non-zero, False otherwise.

If keepdim is True, the output tensor is of the same size as input except in the dimension dim where it is of size 1. Otherwise, dim is squeezed (see torch.squeeze()), resulting in the output tensor having 1 fewer dimension than input.

Parameters:
  • dim (int) – the dimension to reduce
  • keepdim (bool) – whether the output tensor has dim retained or not
  • out (Tensor, optional) – the output tensor

Example:

>>> a.any()
True
any(dim, keepdim=False, out=None) → Tensor

Returns True if any elements in each row of the tensor in the given dimension dim are non-zero, False otherwise.

Parameters:
  • dim (int) – the dimension to reduce
  • keepdim (bool) – whether the output tensor has dim retained or not
  • out (Tensor, optional) – the output tensor
