numpy.array_split(ary, indices_or_sections, axis=0)[source]

Split an array into multiple sub-arrays.

Please refer to the split documentation. The only difference between these functions is that array_split allows indices_or_sections to be an integer that does not equally divide the axis. For an array of length l that should be split into n sections, it returns l % n sub-arrays of size l//n + 1 and the rest of size l//n.

Split array into multiple sub-arrays of equal size.

Examples

>>> x = np.arange(8.0)
>>> np.array_split(x, 3)
    [array([0.,  1.,  2.]), array([3.,  4.,  5.]), array([6.,  7.])]
>>> x = np.arange(7.0)
>>> np.array_split(x, 3)
    [array([0.,  1.,  2.]), array([3.,  4.]), array([5.,  6.])]
