Python | Numpy np.ediff1d() method

• Last Updated : 02 Dec, 2019

With the help of `np.ediff1d()` method, we can get the 1D array of differences between two consecutive elements by using `np.ediff1d()` method.

Syntax : `np.ediff1d(array)`
Return : Return 1D array having differences of consecutive elements.

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by using `np.ediff1d()` method, we are able to get the 1D array of consecutive differences of the elements of an array using this method.

 `# import numpy``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# using np.ediff1d() method``arr ``=` `np.array([``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``5``, ``7``, ``11``])``gfg ``=` `np.ediff1d(arr)`` ` `print``(gfg)`

Output :

[1 1 2 2 4]

Example #2 :

 `# import numpy``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# using np.ediff1d() method``arr ``=` `np.array([``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``5``, ``7``, ``11``, ``13``, ``17``, ``19``, ``23``, ``29``, ``31``, ``37``, ``41``, ``43``, ``47``])``gfg ``=` `np.ediff1d(arr)`` ` `print``(gfg)`

Output :

[1 1 2 2 4 2 4 2 4 6 2 6 4 2 4]
