# Evaluate Einstein’s summation convention of two multidimensional NumPy arrays

In Python, we can use the einsum() function of the NumPy package to compute Einstein’s summation convention of two given multidimensional arrays.

Syntax: numpy.einsum(subscripts, *operands, out=None)

Parameters:

subscripts : str

Specifies the subscripts for summation as comma separated list of subscript labels. An implicit (classical Einstein summation) calculation is performed unless the explicit indicator ‘->’ is included as well as subscript labels of the precise output form.

operands : list of array_like

These are the arrays for the operation.

out : ndarray, optional

If provided, the calculation is done into this array.

Returns: The calculation based on the Einstein summation convention.

Example 1: Einstein’s summation convention of two 2X2 matrices

## Python3

 `# Importing library``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating two 2X2 matrix``matrix1 ``=` `np.array([[``1``, ``2``], [``0``, ``2``]])``matrix2 ``=` `np.array([[``0``, ``1``], [``3``, ``4``]])`` ` `print``(``"Original matrix:"``)``print``(matrix1)``print``(matrix2)`` ` `# Output``result ``=` `np.einsum(``"mk,kn"``, matrix1, matrix2)`` ` `print``(``"Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:"``)``print``(result)`

Output:

```Original matrix:
[[1 2]
[0 2]]
[[0 1]
[3 4]]
Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:
[[6 9]
[6 8]]
```

Example 2: Einstein’s summation convention of two 3X3 matrices

## Python3

 `# Importing library``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating two 3X3 matrix``matrix1 ``=` `np.array([[``2``, ``3``, ``5``], [``4``, ``0``, ``2``], [``0``, ``6``, ``8``]])``matrix2 ``=` `np.array([[``0``, ``1``, ``5``], [``3``, ``4``, ``4``], [``8``, ``3``, ``0``]])`` ` `print``(``"Original matrix:"``)``print``(matrix1)``print``(matrix2)`` ` `# Output``result ``=` `np.einsum(``"mk,kn"``, matrix1, matrix2)`` ` `print``(``"Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:"``)``print``(result)`

Output:

```Original matrix:
[[2 3 5]
[4 0 2]
[0 6 8]]
[[0 1 5]
[3 4 4]
[8 3 0]]
Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:
[[49 29 22]
[16 10 20]
[82 48 24]]
```

Example 3: Einstein’s summation convention of two 4X4 matrices

## Python3

 `# Importing library``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating two 4X4 matrix``matrix1 ``=` `np.array([[``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``5``], [``4``, ``4``, ``0``, ``2``], ``                    ``[``0``, ``1``, ``6``, ``8``], [``0``, ``5``, ``6``, ``9``]])`` ` `matrix2 ``=` `np.array([[``0``, ``1``, ``9``, ``2``], [``3``, ``3``, ``4``, ``4``], ``                    ``[``1``, ``8``, ``3``, ``0``], [``5``, ``2``, ``1``, ``6``]])`` ` `print``(``"Original matrix:"``)``print``(matrix1)``print``(matrix2)`` ` `# Output``result ``=` `np.einsum(``"mk,kn"``, matrix1, matrix2)`` ` `print``(``"Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:"``)``print``(result)`

Output:

```Original matrix:
[[1 2 3 5]
[4 4 0 2]
[0 1 6 8]
[0 5 6 9]]
[[0 1 9 2]
[3 3 4 4]
[1 8 3 0]
[5 2 1 6]]
Einstein’s summation convention of the two matrix:
[[34 41 31 40]
[22 20 54 36]
[49 67 30 52]
[66 81 47 74]]
```
