# chainer.functions.transpose_sequence¶

chainer.functions.transpose_sequence(xs)[source]

Transpose a list of Variables.

This function transposes a list of Variables and returns a list of Variables. For example a user gives [(0, 1, 2, 3), (4, 5), (6)], the function returns [(0, 4, 6), (1, 5), (2), (3)]. Note that a given list needs to be sorted by each length of Variable.

Parameters: xs (list of Variable or N-dimensional array) – Variables to transpose. Transposed list. tuple of Variable

Example

>>> lst = [chainer.Variable(np.array([1, 1, 1])),
...        chainer.Variable(np.array([2, 2])),
...        chainer.Variable(np.array([3]))]
>>> lst
[variable([1, 1, 1]), variable([2, 2]), variable([3])]
>>> transposed = F.transpose_sequence(lst)
>>> transposed
(variable([1, 2, 3]), variable([1, 2]), variable([1]))
