# numpy.intersect1d() function in Python

`numpy.intersect1d()` function find the intersection of two arrays and return the sorted, unique values that are in both of the input arrays.

Syntax: numpy.intersect1d(arr1, arr2, assume_unique = False, return_indices = False)

Parameters :
arr1, arr2 : [array_like] Input arrays.
assume_unique : [bool] If True, the input arrays are both assumed to be unique, which can speed up the calculation. Default is False.
return_indices : [bool] If True, the indices which correspond to the intersection of the two arrays are returned. The first instance of a value is used if there are multiple. Default is False.

Return : [ndarray] Sorted 1D array of common and unique elements.
