- cupy.argpartition(a, kth, axis=-1)[source]#
Returns the indices that would partially sort an array.
a (cupy.ndarray) – Array to be sorted.
kth (int or sequence of ints) – Element index to partition by. If supplied with a sequence of k-th it will partition all elements indexed by k-th of them into their sorted position at once.
axis (int or None) – Axis along which to sort. Default is -1, which means sort along the last axis. If None is supplied, the array is flattened before sorting.
