pytaco.tensor_sum(t1, axis=None, out_format=mode_format(compressed), dtype=None)

Sums a tensor along a specified axis or axes of a tensor.

t1: tensor, array_like

The elements to sum.

axis: None, int or tuple of ints, optional

Axis or axes along which the sum is performed. If the axis is a tuple of ints, the sum is performed on all of the specified axes.

out_format: format, mode_format, optional
  • If a format is specified, the result tensor is stored in the format out_format.

  • If a mode_format is specified, the result the result tensor has a with all of the dimensions stored in the mode_format passed in.

dtype: Datatype

The datatype of the output tensor.

summed_axes: tensor

A tensor with the same dimensions as t1 with all of the specified axes removed. If axis is None, a scalar tensor is returned.


The sum of an empty element is 0.
