numpy matrix operations | zeros() function
  • Last Updated : 21 Feb, 2019

numpy.matlib.zeros() is another function for doing matrix operations in numpy. It returns a matrix of given shape and type, filled with zeros.

Syntax : numpy.matlib.zeros(shape, dtype=None, order=’C’)

Parameters :
shape : [int, int] Number of rows and columns in the output matrix.If shape has length one i.e. (N, ), or is a scalar N, out becomes a single row matrix of shape (1, N).
dtype : [optional] Desired output data-type.
order : Whether to store multi-dimensional data in row-major (C-style) or column-major (Fortran-style) order in memory.

Return : Matrix of zeros of given shape, dtype, and order.
