# Compute the tensor dot product for arrays with different dimensions over specific axes in Python

Given two tensors, a and b, and an array_like object containing two array_like objects, (a_axes, b_axes), sum the products of a’s and b’s elements (components) over the axes specified by a_axes and b_axes. The third argument can be a single non-negative integer_like scalar, N; if it is such, then the last N dimensions of a and the first N dimensions of b are summed over.

To compute the tensor dot product for arrays with different dimensions, use the numpy.tensordot() method in Python. The a, b parameters are Tensors to “dot”.

The axes parameter, integer_like If an int N, sum over the last N axes of a and the first N axes of b in order. The sizes of the corresponding axes must match.

## Steps

At first, import the required libraries −

import numpy as np

Creating two numpy arrays with different dimensions using the array() method −

arr1 = np.array(range(1, 9)) arr1.shape = (2, 2, 2) arr2 = np.array(('p', 'q', 'r', 's'), dtype=object) arr2.shape = (2, 2)

Display the arrays −

print("Array1...\n",arr1) print("\nArray2...\n",arr2)

Check the Dimensions of both the arrays −

print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",arr1.ndim) print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",arr2.ndim)

Check the Shape of both the arrays −

print("\nShape of Array1...\n",arr1.shape) print("\nShape of Array2...\n",arr2.shape)

To compute the tensor dot product for arrays with different dimensions, use the numpy.tensordot() method −

print("\nTensor dot product...\n", np.tensordot(arr1, arr2, axes = 1))

## Example

import numpy as np # Creating two numpy arrays with different dimensions using the array() method arr1 = np.array(range(1, 9)) arr1.shape = (2, 2, 2) arr2 = np.array(('p', 'q', 'r', 's'), dtype=object) arr2.shape = (2, 2) # Display the arrays print("Array1...\n",arr1) print("\nArray2...\n",arr2) # Check the Dimensions of both the arrays print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",arr1.ndim) print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",arr2.ndim) # Check the Shape of both the arrays print("\nShape of Array1...\n",arr1.shape) print("\nShape of Array2...\n",arr2.shape) # To compute the tensor dot product for arrays with different dimensions, use the numpy.tensordot() method in Python # The a, b parameters are Tensors to “dot”. print("\nTensor dot product...\n", np.tensordot(arr1, arr2, axes = 1))

## Output

Array1... [[[1 2] [3 4]] [[5 6] [7 8]]] Array2... [['p' 'q'] ['r' 's']] Dimensions of Array1... 3 Dimensions of Array2... 2 Shape of Array1... (2, 2, 2) Shape of Array2... (2, 2) Tensor dot product... [[['prr' 'qss'] ['ppprrrr' 'qqqssss']] [['ppppprrrrrr' 'qqqqqssssss'] ['ppppppprrrrrrrr' 'qqqqqqqssssssss']]]
