cupy.argmax¶

cupy.argmax(a, axis=None, dtype=None, out=None, keepdims=False)[source]

Returns the indices of the maximum along an axis.

Parameters
• a (cupy.ndarray) – Array to take argmax.

• axis (int) – Along which axis to find the maximum. a is flattened by default.

• dtype – Data type specifier.

• out (cupy.ndarray) – Output array.

• keepdims (bool) – If True, the axis axis is preserved as an axis of length one.

Returns

The indices of the maximum of a along an axis.

Return type

cupy.ndarray

Note

dtype and keepdim arguments are specific to CuPy. They are not in NumPy.

Note

axis argument accepts a tuple of ints, but this is specific to CuPy. NumPy does not support it.
