To generate a Pseudo-Vandermonde matrix of given degree, use the polynomial.polyvander2() in Python Numpy. The method returns the pseudo-Vandermonde matrix of degrees deg and sample points (x, y). The parameter, x and y, are the arrays of point coordinates, all of the same shape. The dtypes will be converted to either float64 or complex128 depending on whether any of the elements are complex. Scalars are converted to 1-D arrays. The parameter, deg is the list of maximum degrees of the form [x_deg, y_deg].

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial.polynomial import polyvander2d

Create arrays of point coordinates, all of the same shape using the numpy.array() method −

x = np.array([1, 2])
y = np.array([3, 4])

Display the arrays −

print("Array1...\n",x)
print("\nArray2...\n",y)

Display the datatype −

print("\nArray1 datatype...\n",x.dtype)
print("\nArray2 datatype...\n",y.dtype)

Check the Dimensions of both the arrays −

print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",x.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",y.ndim)

Check the Shape of both the arrays −

print("\nShape of Array1...\n",x.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",y.shape)

To generate a Pseudo-Vandermonde matrix of given degree, use the polynomial.polyvander2() in Python Numpy −

x_deg, y_deg = 2, 3
print("\nResult...\n",polyvander2d(x,y, [x_deg, y_deg]))

## Example

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial.polynomial import polyvander2d

# Create arrays of point coordinates, all of the same shape using the numpy.array() method
x = np.array([1, 2])
y = np.array([3, 4])

# Display the arrays
print("Array1...\n",x)
print("\nArray2...\n",y)

# Display the datatype
print("\nArray1 datatype...\n",x.dtype)
print("\nArray2 datatype...\n",y.dtype)

# Check the Dimensions of both the arrays
print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",x.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",y.ndim)

# Check the Shape of both the arrays
print("\nShape of Array1...\n",x.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",y.shape)

# To generate a Pseudo-Vandermonde matrix of given degree, use the polynomial.polyvander2() in Python Numpy
# The method returns the pseudo-Vandermonde matrix of degrees deg and sample points (x, y).
x_deg, y_deg = 2, 3
print("\nResult...\n",polyvander2d(x,y, [x_deg, y_deg]))
