# Zero#

This example shows how to use the pylops.basicoperators.Zero operator. This operators simply zeroes the data in forward mode and the model in adjoint mode.

import matplotlib.gridspec as pltgs
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

import pylops

plt.close("all")


Let’s define an zero operator $$\mathbf{0}$$ with same number of elements for data $$N$$ and model $$M$$.

N, M = 5, 5
x = np.arange(M)
Zop = pylops.basicoperators.Zero(M, dtype="int")

y = Zop * x
xadj = Zop.H * y

gs = pltgs.GridSpec(1, 6)
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(7, 4))
ax = plt.subplot(gs[0, 0:3])
ax.imshow(np.zeros((N, N)), cmap="rainbow", vmin=-M, vmax=M)
ax.set_title("A", size=20, fontweight="bold")
ax.set_xticks(np.arange(N - 1) + 0.5)
ax.set_yticks(np.arange(M - 1) + 0.5)
ax.grid(linewidth=3, color="white")
ax.xaxis.set_ticklabels([])
ax.yaxis.set_ticklabels([])
ax = plt.subplot(gs[0, 3])
im = ax.imshow(x[:, np.newaxis], cmap="rainbow", vmin=-M, vmax=M)
ax.set_title("x", size=20, fontweight="bold")
ax.set_xticks([])
ax.set_yticks(np.arange(M - 1) + 0.5)
ax.grid(linewidth=3, color="white")
ax.xaxis.set_ticklabels([])
ax.yaxis.set_ticklabels([])
ax = plt.subplot(gs[0, 4])
ax.text(
0.35,
0.5,
"=",
horizontalalignment="center",
verticalalignment="center",
size=40,
fontweight="bold",
)
ax.axis("off")
ax = plt.subplot(gs[0, 5])
ax.imshow(y[:, np.newaxis], cmap="rainbow", vmin=-M, vmax=M)
ax.set_title("y", size=20, fontweight="bold")
ax.set_xticks([])
ax.set_yticks(np.arange(N - 1) + 0.5)
ax.grid(linewidth=3, color="white")
ax.xaxis.set_ticklabels([])
ax.yaxis.set_ticklabels([])
fig.colorbar(im, ax=ax, ticks=[0], pad=0.3, shrink=0.7)
plt.tight_layout()


Similarly we can consider the case with data bigger than model

N, M = 10, 5
x = np.arange(M)
Zop = pylops.Zero(N, M, dtype="int")

y = Zop * x
xadj = Zop.H * y

print(f"x = {x}")
print(f"0*x = {y}")

x = [0 1 2 3 4]
0*x = [0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0]
0'*y = [0 0 0 0 0]


and model bigger than data

N, M = 5, 10
x = np.arange(M)
Zop = pylops.Zero(N, M, dtype="int")

y = Zop * x
xadj = Zop.H * y

print(f"x = {x}")
print(f"0*x = {y}")

x = [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9]
0*x = [0 0 0 0 0]
0'*y = [0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0]


Note that this operator can be useful in many real-life applications when for example we want to manipulate a subset of the model array and keep intact the rest of the array. For example:

$\begin{split}\begin{bmatrix} \mathbf{A} \quad \mathbf{0} \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} \mathbf{x_1} \\ \mathbf{x_2} \end{bmatrix} = \mathbf{A} \mathbf{x_1}\end{split}$
