Concatenation refers to joining. This function is used to join two or more arrays of the same shape along a specified axis. The function takes the following parameters.

numpy.concatenate((a1, a2, ...), axis)

Where,

Sr.No. Parameter & Description
1

a1,a2..

Sequence of arrays of the same type

2

axis

Axis along which arrays have to be joined. Default is 0

Example

import numpy as np 
a = np.array([[1,2],[3,4]]) 

print 'First array:' 
print a 
print '\n'  
b = np.array([[5,6],[7,8]]) 

print 'Second array:' 
print b 
print '\n'  
# both the arrays are of same dimensions 

print 'Joining the two arrays along axis 0:' 
print np.concatenate((a,b)) 
print '\n'  

print 'Joining the two arrays along axis 1:' 
print np.concatenate((a,b),axis = 1)

Its output is as follows −

First array:
[[1 2]
 [3 4]]

Second array:
[[5 6]
 [7 8]]

Joining the two arrays along axis 0:
[[1 2]
 [3 4]
 [5 6]
 [7 8]]

Joining the two arrays along axis 1:
[[1 2 5 6]
 [3 4 7 8]]
