Write a NumPy program to compute the Kronecker product of two given multi-dimension arrays.

Note: In mathematics, the Kronecker product, denoted by ⊗, is an operation on two matrices of arbitrary size resulting in a block matrix. It is a generalization of the outer product (which is denoted by the same symbol) from vectors to matrices, and gives the matrix of the tensor product with respect to a standard choice of basis. The Kronecker product should not be confused with the usual matrix multiplication, which is an entirely different operation.

If A is an m × n matrix and B is a p × q matrix, then the Kronecker product A ⊗ B is the mp × nq block matrix:

NumPy Linear algebra: Compute the Kronecker product of two given mulitdimension arrays

 

Sample Solution :

Python Code :


import numpy as np

a = np.array([1,2,3])
b = np.array([0,1,0])
print("Original 1-d arrays:")
print(a)
print(b)

result =  np.kron(a, b)
print("Kronecker product of the said arrays:")
print(result)

x = np.arange(9).reshape(3, 3)
y = np.arange(3, 12).reshape(3, 3)
print("Original Higher dimension:")
print(x)
print(y)

result = np.kron(x, y)
print("Kronecker product  of the said arrays:")
print(result)

Sample Output:

Original 1-d arrays:
[1 2 3]
[0 1 0]
Kronecker product of the said arrays:
[0 1 0 0 2 0 0 3 0]
Original Higher dimension:
[[0 1 2]
 [3 4 5]
 [6 7 8]]
[[ 3  4  5]
 [ 6  7  8]
 [ 9 10 11]]
Kronecker product  of the said arrays:
[[ 0  0  0  3  4  5  6  8 10]
 [ 0  0  0  6  7  8 12 14 16]
 [ 0  0  0  9 10 11 18 20 22]
 [ 9 12 15 12 16 20 15 20 25]
 [18 21 24 24 28 32 30 35 40]
 [27 30 33 36 40 44 45 50 55]
 [18 24 30 21 28 35 24 32 40]
 [36 42 48 42 49 56 48 56 64]
 [54 60 66 63 70 77 72 80 88]]

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
