mipylib.numeric.minum.arange([start, ]stop, [step, ]dtype=None)

Return evenly spaced values within a given interval

Values are generated within the half-open interval [start, stop] (in other words, the interval including start but excluding stop).

When using a non-integer step, such as 0.1, the results will often not be consistent. It is better to use linespace for these cases.

  • start – (number, optional) Start of interval. The interval includes this value. The default start value is 0.
  • stop – (number) End of interval. The interval does not include this value, except in some cases where step is not an integer and floating point round-off affects the length of out.
  • step – (number, optional) Spacing between values. For any output out, this is the distance between two adjacent values, out[i+1] - out[i]. The default step size is 1. If step is specified. start must also be given.
  • dtype – (dtype) The type of output array. If dtype is not given, infer the data type from the other input arguments.

(MIArray) Array of evenly spaced values.


>>> arange(3)
array([0, 1, 2])
>>> arange(3,7,2)
array([3, 5])
