argpartition(a: array, /, kth: int, axis: None | int = -1, *, stream: None | Stream | Device = None) array#

Returns the indices that partition the array.

The ordering of the elements within a partition in given by the indices is undefined.

  • a (array) – Input array.

  • kth (int) – Element index at the kth position in the output will give the sorted position. All indices before the kth position will be of elements less or equal to the element at the kth index and all indices after will be of elements greater or equal to the element at the kth index.

  • axis (int or None, optional) – Optional axis to partition over. If None, this partitions over the flattened array. If unspecified, it defaults to -1.


The uint32` array containing indices that partition the input.
