Sometimes in the world of competitive programming, we need to initialise the matrix, but we don’t wish to do it in a longer way using a loop. We need a shorthand for this. This type of problem is quite common in dynamic programming domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be done.
Method #1 : Using List comprehension
List comprehension can be treated as a shorthand for performing this particular operation. In list comprehension, we can initialise the inner list and then extend this logic to each row again using the list comprehension.
The matrix after initializing : [[0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0, 0, 0]]
Method #2 : Using list comprehension + “
This problem can also be simplified using the * operator which can slightly reduce the tedious way task is done and can simply use multiply operator to extent the initialization to all N rows.
The matrix after initializing : [[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]]
