# @stdlib/utils-reduce2d

0.2.1 • Public • Published

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

# reduce2d

Reduce the number of dimensions by one of a two-dimensional nested array by applying a function against an accumulator and each element along the innermost dimension and returning the accumulation results as a one-dimensional array.

## Installation

`npm install @stdlib/utils-reduce2d`

## Usage

`var reduce2d = require( '@stdlib/utils-reduce2d' );`

#### reduce2d( arr, initial, fcn[, thisArg] )

Reduces the number of dimensions by one of a two-dimensional nested array by applying a function against an accumulator and each element along the innermost dimension and returning the accumulation results as a one-dimensional array.

```var naryFunction = require( '@stdlib/utils-nary-function' );

var arr = [
[ 1, 2, 3 ],
[ 4, 5, 6 ]
];

var out = reduce2d( arr, [ 0, 0 ], naryFunction( add, 2 ) );
// returns [ 6, 15 ]```

The applied function is provided the following arguments:

• accumulator: accumulated value.
• value: array element.
• indices: current array element indices.
• arr: input array.

To set the `this` context when invoking the input function, provide a `thisArg`.

```var add = require( '@stdlib/math-base-ops-add' );

function fcn( acc, v ) {
this.count += 1;
}

var arr = [
[ 1, 2, 3 ],
[ 4, 5, 6 ]
];

var ctx = {
'count': 0
};

var out = reduce2d( arr, [ 0, 0 ], fcn, ctx );
// returns [ 6, 15 ]

var cnt = ctx.count;
// returns 6```

## Notes

• The function requires an array-like object containing an `initial` value for the accumulator for each reduction. The number of `initial` values must equal the size of the outermost input array dimension.

## Examples

```var filledarrayBy = require( '@stdlib/array-filled-by' );
var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random-base-discrete-uniform' ).factory;
var naryFunction = require( '@stdlib/utils-nary-function' );
var zeros = require( '@stdlib/array-base-zeros' );
var reduce2d = require( '@stdlib/utils-reduce2d' );

function fill( i ) {
var rand = discreteUniform( -10*(i+1), 10*(i+1) );
return filledarrayBy( 10, 'float64', rand );
}

// Create a nested array of arrays:
var x = filledarrayBy( 10, 'generic', fill );

// Create an explicit binary function:
var f = naryFunction( add, 2 );

// Compute the sums along the innermost dimension...
var y = reduce2d( x, zeros( x.length ), f );

console.log( 'x:' );
console.log( x );

console.log( 'y:' );
console.log( y );```

## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
