The `numpy.meshgrid()`

function is used to create a coordinate grid from two or more 1-dimensional arrays representing the Cartesian indexing. It returns a pair of arrays representing the coordinates of points in a rectangular grid. The syntax of the `meshgrid()`

function is as follows:

numpy.meshgrid(*xi, indexing='xy', sparse=False, copy=True)

Here’s an explanation of the parameters:

`*xi`

: The input arrays representing the coordinates. You can pass two or more 1-dimensional arrays.`indexing`

(optional): The coordinate indexing scheme. It can be`'xy'`

(default) or`'ij'`

.`sparse`

(optional): If`True`

, it returns sparse grids. If`False`

(default), it returns dense grids.`copy`

(optional): If`True`

(default), it returns a new copy of the coordinate arrays. If`False`

, it returns views into the original arrays.

Now, let’s look at some examples to understand how the `meshgrid()`

function works:

**Creating a 2D grid with default indexing:**

import numpy as np x = np.array([1, 2, 3]) y = np.array([4, 5, 6, 7]) X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, y) print(X) print(Y)

Output:

[[1 2 3] [1 2 3] [1 2 3] [1 2 3]] [[4 4 4] [5 5 5] [6 6 6] [7 7 7]]

In this example, the `meshgrid()`

function creates a 2D grid by combining the values from arrays `x`

and `y`

. The resulting `X`

and `Y`

arrays represent the Cartesian coordinates of points in the grid.

**Creating a 2D grid with**`'ij'`

indexing:

import numpy as np x = np.array([1, 2, 3]) y = np.array([4, 5, 6, 7]) X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, y, indexing='ij') print(X) print(Y)

Output:

[[1 1 1] [2 2 2] [3 3 3]] [[4 5 6] [4 5 6] [4 5 6] [4 5 6]]

Here, the `meshgrid()`

function creates a 2D grid with `'ij'`

indexing, which means the row coordinates are created from the `x`

array and the column coordinates are created from the `y`

array.

**Creating a sparse grid:**

import numpy as np x = np.array([1, 2, 3]) y = np.array([4, 5, 6, 7]) X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, y, sparse=True) print(X) print(Y)

Output:

[[1 2 3]] [[4] [5] [6] [7]]

#### Conclusion:

In this example, the `meshgrid()`

function creates a sparse grid by setting `sparse=True`

. The resulting `X`

and `Y`

arrays are 2-dimensional, but only contain one row or one
