mars.tensor.zeros(shape, dtype=None, chunk_size=None, gpu=False, sparse=False, order='C')[source]

Return a new tensor of given shape and type, filled with zeros.

  • shape (int or sequence of ints) – Shape of the new tensor, e.g., (2, 3) or 2.

  • dtype (data-type, optional) – The desired data-type for the array, e.g., mt.int8. Default is mt.float64.

  • chunk_size (int or tuple of int or tuple of ints, optional) – Desired chunk size on each dimension

  • gpu (bool, optional) – Allocate the tensor on GPU if True, False as default

  • sparse (bool, optional) – Create sparse tensor if True, False as default

  • order ({'C', 'F'}, optional, default: 'C') – Whether to store multi-dimensional data in row-major (C-style) or column-major (Fortran-style) order in memory.


out – Tensor of zeros with the given shape, dtype, and order.
