# qml.math.take¶

take(tensor, indices, axis=None)[source]

Gather elements from a tensor.

Note that take(indices, axis=3) is equivalent to tensor[:, :, :, indices, ...] for frameworks that support NumPy-like fancy indexing.

This function is roughly equivalent to np.take and tf.gather. In the case of a 1-dimensional set of indices, it is roughly equivalent to torch.index_select, but deviates for multi-dimensional indices.

Parameters
• tensor (tensor_like) – input tensor

• indices (Sequence[int]) – the indices of the values to extract

• axis – The axis over which to select the values. If not provided, the tensor is flattened before value extraction.

Example

>>> x = torch.tensor([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
>>> take(y, indices=[[0, 0], [1, 0]], axis=1)
tensor([[[1, 1],
[2, 1]],

[[3, 3],

[4, 3]]])
