sciPy stats.hmean() | Python

scipy.stats.hmean(array, axis=0, dtype=None) calculates the harmonic mean of the array elements along the specified axis of the array (list in python).

It’s formula –

Parameters :
array: Input array or object having the elements to calculate the harmonic mean.
axis: Axis along which the mean is to be computed. By default axis = 0
dtype: Optional. It sets the type of returned element.

Returns : Harmonic mean of the array elements based on the set parameters.

# using axis = 0
print("\nHarmonic Mean is with default axis = 0 : \n"
      hmean(arr1, axis = 0))
  
# using axis = 1

      hmean(arr1, axis = 1))

Output:

Harmonic Mean is : [ 2.21052632  4.36363636  6.04195804]

Harmonic Mean is with default axis = 0 : 
 [ 2.21052632  4.36363636  6.04195804]

Harmonic Mean is with default axis = 1 : 
 [ 2.18918919  4.          4.66666667  4.8       ]
