# numpy.tril_indices() function | Python

`numpy.tril_indices() ` function return the indices for the lower-triangle of an (n, m) array.

Syntax : numpy.tril_indices(n, k = 0, m = None)
Parameters :
n : [int] The row dimension of the arrays for which the returned indices will be valid.
k : [int, optional] Diagonal offset.
m : [int, optional] The column dimension of the arrays for which the returned arrays will be valid. By default m is taken equal to n.
Return : [tuple of arrays] The indices for the triangle. The returned tuple contains two arrays, each with the indices along one dimension of the array.
