Python | Numpy np.lagvander() method

With the help of np.lagvander() method, we can get the Pseudo-Vandermonde matrix from given array having degree which is passed as parameter by using np.lagvander() method.

Syntax : np.lagvander(arr, degree)
Parameters:
arr :[ array_like ] Array of points. The dtype is converted to float64 or complex128 depending on whether any of the elements are complex. If x is scalar it is converted to a 1-D array
deg :[int] Degree of the resulting matrix.

Return : Return the matrix having size i.e array.size + (degree + 1).

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by using np.lagvander() method, we are able to get the pseudo-vandermonde matrix using this method.
