# torch.roll¶

torch.roll(input, shifts, dims=None) → Tensor

Roll the tensor along the given dimension(s). Elements that are shifted beyond the last position are re-introduced at the first position. If a dimension is not specified, the tensor will be flattened before rolling and then restored to the original shape.

Parameters
• input (Tensor) – the input tensor.

• shifts (int or tuple of python:ints) – The number of places by which the elements of the tensor are shifted. If shifts is a tuple, dims must be a tuple of the same size, and each dimension will be rolled by the corresponding value

• dims (int or tuple of python:ints) – Axis along which to roll

Example:

>>> x = torch.tensor([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]).view(4, 2)
>>> x
tensor([[1, 2],
[3, 4],
[5, 6],
[7, 8]])
>>> torch.roll(x, 1, 0)
tensor([[7, 8],
[1, 2],
[3, 4],
[5, 6]])
>>> torch.roll(x, -1, 0)
tensor([[3, 4],
[5, 6],
[7, 8],
[1, 2]])
>>> torch.roll(x, shifts=(2, 1), dims=(0, 1))
tensor([[6, 5],
[8, 7],
[2, 1],
[4, 3]])
