tf.concat(values, axis, name='concat')

tf.concat(values, axis, name='concat')

See the guide: Tensor Transformations > Slicing and Joining

Concatenates tensors along one dimension.

Concatenates the list of tensors values along dimension axis. If values[i].shape = [D0, D1, ... Daxis(i), ...Dn], the concatenated result has shape

[D0, D1, ... Raxis, ...Dn]

where

Raxis = sum(Daxis(i))

That is, the data from the input tensors is joined along the axis dimension.

The number of dimensions of the input tensors must match, and all dimensions except axis must be equal.

For example:

t1 = [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]
t2 = [[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]
tf.concat([t1, t2], 0) ==> [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]
tf.concat([t1, t2], 1) ==> [[1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9], [4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12]]

# tensor t3 with shape [2, 3]
# tensor t4 with shape [2, 3]
tf.shape(tf.concat([t3, t4], 0)) ==> [4, 3]
tf.shape(tf.concat([t3, t4], 1)) ==> [2, 6]
tf.concat([tf.expand_dims(t, axis) for t in tensors], axis)

can be rewritten as

tf.stack(tensors, axis=axis)

Args:

  • values: A list of Tensor objects or a single Tensor.
  • axis: 0-D int32 Tensor. Dimension along which to concatenate.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).

Returns:

A Tensor resulting from concatenation of the input tensors.
