Sometimes while working with Python Matrix, we can have a problem in which we need to extract all the rows which match with other matrix, which has a specific element. This kind of problem can occur in data domains as Matrix are input data types for many problems. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.
 

Input
test_list1 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 6], [5, 7, 10]] 
test_list2 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 8], [5, 7, 10]] 
K = 7 
Output : 2
Input
test_list1 = [[6, 7], [6], [5]] 
test_list2 = [[6, 7], [7], [5]] 
K = 6 
Output : 1 
 


Method #1 : Using sum() + generator expression 
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of counting match using sum(), and generator expression is used to perform the task of comparison.
 

Python3

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Rows intersection with K
# Using sum() + generator expression
 
# initializing lists
test_list1 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 6], [5, 7, 10]]
test_list2 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 8], [5, 7, 10]]
 
# printing original list
print("The original list 1 is : " + str(test_list1))
print("The original list 2 is : " + str(test_list2))
 
# initializing K
K = 5
 
# Rows intersection with K
# Using sum() + generator expression
res = sum(sum(a == b for b in test_list2) for a in test_list1 if K in a)
 
# printing result
print("The matched rows : " + str(res))

                    

Output : 
The original list 1 is : [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 6], [5, 7, 10]]
The original list 2 is : [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 8], [5, 7, 10]]
The matched rows : 2

 

Time Complexity: O(n*n) where n is the number of elements in the list “test_list”. sum() + generator expression performs n*n number of operations.
Auxiliary Space: O(1), constant extra space is required

 
Method #2 : Using Counter() + sum() + list comprehension 
The combination of above functions can be an alternative to solve this problem. In this, we perform summation using sum() and Counter() is used to map rows from list2 to compare with list1 while counting frequency summation.
 

Python3

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Rows intersection with K
# Using Counter() + sum() + list comprehension
from collections import Counter
 
# initializing lists
test_list1 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 6], [5, 7, 10]]
test_list2 = [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 8], [5, 7, 10]]
 
# printing original list
print("The original list 1 is : " + str(test_list1))
print("The original list 2 is : " + str(test_list2))
 
# initializing K
K = 5
 
# Rows intersection with K
# Using Counter() + sum() + list comprehension
temp = Counter(tuple(b) for b in test_list2)
res = sum(temp[tuple(a)] for a in test_list1 if K in a)
 
# printing result
print("The matched rows : " + str(res))

                    

Output : 
The original list 1 is : [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 6], [5, 7, 10]]
The original list 2 is : [[5, 6, 7], [7, 6, 8], [5, 7, 10]]
The matched rows : 2
