How to compute Z to the power of n using numpy if Z is a large vector?

This recipe helps you compute Z to the power of n using numpy if Z is a large vector


Recipe Objective

Many a times while handling arrays, we might need to find powers. We do have a function in numpy to handle such a situation. Null array comes quite handy while operating with numpy library in python.

So this recipe is a short example on how to compute power of a large array. Let's get started.

Step 1 - Import the library

import numpy as np

Let's pause and look at these imports. Numpy is generally helpful in data manipulation while working with arrays. It also helps in performing mathematical operation.

Step 2 - Defining power function

def power(Z,n): return np.power(Z,n)

We have a created a function which will return an array passed to it raised to power n.

Step 3 - Printing array


We call power function to find out the array of size 1000 raised to the power n.

Step 4 - Lets look at our dataset now

Once we run the above code snippet, we will see:
