mxnet.ndarray.sparse.zeros(stype, shape, ctx=None, dtype=None, **kwargs)[source]

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

  • stype (string) – The storage type of the empty array, such as ‘row_sparse’, ‘csr’, etc

  • shape (int or tuple of int) – The shape of the empty array

  • ctx (Context, optional) – An optional device context (default is the current default context)

  • dtype (str or numpy.dtype, optional) – An optional value type (default is float32)


A created array

Return type

RowSparseNDArray or CSRNDArray


>>> mx.nd.sparse.zeros('csr', (1,2))
<CSRNDArray 1x2 @cpu(0)>
>>> mx.nd.sparse.zeros('row_sparse', (1,2), ctx=mx.cpu(), dtype='float16').asnumpy()
array([[ 0.,  0.]], dtype=float16)
