# Evaluate a 3D Laguerre series at points (x,y,z) with 2D array of coefficient in Python

To evaluate a 3D Laguerre series at points (x,y,z), use the polynomial.laguerre.lagval3d() method in Python Numpy. The method returns the values of the multidimensional polynomial on points formed with triples of corresponding values from x, y, and z..

If c has fewer than 3 dimensions, ones are implicitly appended to its shape to make it 3-D. The shape of the result will be c.shape[3:] + x.shape. The 1st parameter is x, y, z. The three dimensional series is evaluated at the points (x, y, z), where x, y, and z must have the same shape. If any of x, y, or z is a list or tuple, it is first converted to an ndarray, otherwise it is left unchanged and if it isn’t an ndarray it is treated as a scalar.

The 2nd parameter, C, is an array of coefficients ordered so that the coefficient of the term of multidegree i,j,k is contained in c[i,j,k]. If c has dimension greater than 3 the remaining indices enumerate multiple sets of coefficients.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial import laguerre as L

Create a 2d array of coefficients −

c = np.arange(4).reshape(2,2)

Display the array −

print("Our Array...\n",c)

Check the Dimensions −

print("\nDimensions of our Array...\n",c.ndim)

Get the Datatype −

print("\nDatatype of our Array object...\n",c.dtype)

Get the Shape −

print("\nShape of our Array object...\n",c.shape)

To evaluate a 3D Laguerre series at points (x,y,z), use the polynomial.laguerre.lagval3d() method in Python Numpy −

print("\nResult...\n",L.lagval3d([1,2],[1,2],[1,2], c))

## Example

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial import laguerre as L

# Create a 2d array of coefficients
c = np.arange(4).reshape(2,2)

# Display the array
print("Our Array...\n",c)

# Check the Dimensions
print("\nDimensions of our Array...\n",c.ndim)

# Get the Datatype
print("\nDatatype of our Array object...\n",c.dtype)

# Get the Shape
print("\nShape of our Array object...\n",c.shape)

# To evaluate a 3D Laguerre series at points (x,y,z), use the polynomial.laguerre.lagval3d() method in Python Numpy
print("\nResult...\n",L.lagval3d([1,2],[1,2],[1,2], c))
