# #技巧和提示

## #“自动”重定义数组形状

>>> a = np.arange(30)
>>> a.shape = 2,-1,3  # -1 means "whatever is needed"
>>> a.shape
(2, 5, 3)
>>> a
array([[[ 0,  1,  2],
[ 3,  4,  5],
[ 6,  7,  8],
[ 9, 10, 11],
[12, 13, 14]],
[[15, 16, 17],
[18, 19, 20],
[21, 22, 23],
[24, 25, 26],
[27, 28, 29]]])

## #向量堆叠

x = np.arange(0,10,2)                     # x=([0,2,4,6,8])
y = np.arange(5)                          # y=([0,1,2,3,4])
m = np.vstack([x,y])                      # m=([[0,2,4,6,8],
#     [0,1,2,3,4]])
xy = np.hstack([x,y])                     # xy =([0,2,4,6,8,0,1,2,3,4])

## #直方图

NumPy的 histogram 函数应用于一个数组，并返回一对向量：数组的histogram和向量的bin。注意： matplotlib 也具有构建histograms的函数（在Matlab中称为 hist ），它与NumPy中的不同。主要区别是 pylab.hist 自动绘制histogram，而 numpy.histogram 仅生成数据。

>>> import numpy as np
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> # Build a vector of 10000 normal deviates with variance 0.5^2 and mean 2
>>> mu, sigma = 2, 0.5
>>> v = np.random.normal(mu,sigma,10000)
>>> # Plot a normalized histogram with 50 bins
>>> plt.hist(v, bins=50, normed=1)       # matplotlib version (plot)
>>> plt.show()

>>> # Compute the histogram with numpy and then plot it
>>> (n, bins) = np.histogram(v, bins=50, normed=True)  # NumPy version (no plot)
>>> plt.plot(.5*(bins[1:]+bins[:-1]), n)
>>> plt.show()
