Can anyone list down different methods to find the ‘nth’ largest values using NumPy only? I wanted to implement this functionality in my code assignment but I am facing an issue to implement this using NumPy, the only method I do know of is how to extract the ‘nth’ largest value using a Python for loop (pasting below for reference), which is not efficient at all.
Hello @safiaa.02, if you want to find the
n largest values in a NumPy array using NumPy, you can use the
np.sort() function along with array slicing. Here is an example code that finds the
3 largest values in an array:
np.sort()function sorts the array in ascending order by default.
- To get the largest values, the code reverses the sorted array using the
- Finally, the first
nelements of the reversed array are selected to get the
I hope this code helps!
