class pylops.Transpose(dims, axes, dtype='float64')[source]

Transpose operator.

Transpose axes of a multi-dimensional array. This operator works with flattened input model (or data), which are however multi-dimensional in nature and will be reshaped and treated as such in both forward and adjoint modes.

dims : tuple, optional

Number of samples for each dimension (None if only one dimension is available)

axes : tuple, optional

Direction along which symmetrization is applied

dtype : str, optional

Type of elements in input array


If axes contains repeated dimensions (or a dimension is missing)


The Transpose operator reshapes the input model into a multi-dimensional array of size dims and transposes (or swaps) its axes as defined in axes.

Similarly, in adjoint mode the data is reshaped into a multi-dimensional array whose size is a permuted version of dims defined by axes. The array is then rearragned into the original model dimensions dims.

shape : tuple

Operator shape

explicit : bool

Operator contains a matrix that can be solved explicitly (True) or not (False)
