2D Array, Nested Loops
One dimensionalarrays and lists
We have learned lists and some applications.For example, for a given list of numbersa_listCompute the sumCompute the average
defcompute_sum(a_list):sum=0foriin range(len(a_list)):sum+=a_list[i]return sum
defcompute_avg(a_list):sum=compute_sum(a_list)return sum /len(a_list)
2D arrays and lists
Many other applications require 2D arrays and listsFor example, if we want to compute the average test scores of a class in which we havenstudents andktests. The data will look something like the following.In your up-coming labs and homework you will see other applications.We usually need nested loops to handle 2D data.
Sizing up arrays…
How could we create this rectangular array of0s?
or
x= 5*[ 3* ]
x= 3*[ 5* ]
[[0,0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,0,0]]

or
x= 5*[ 3* ]
x= 3*[ 5* ]
[[0,0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,0,0]]
Sizing up arrays…
How could we create this rectangular array of0s?
but NEITHER ONE works!
because lists are handledby reference!

Try ref_copy.py
What's really going on?
x= 3*[ 5* ]
inner = 5*
x= 3*[inner]

Safelycreating arrays…
defcreate_one_row( width ):""" does just that """row = []# start with nothingforcolinrange( width ):row = row + returnrow
So, how would you create alist of rows!?
# loop andappend!

Safelycreating arrays…
defcreate2d_array( width, height ):""" does just that """x= []# start with nothingforrow_countinrange( height ):row = * widthx=x+ [row]returnx
the same approach as before!

>>> diff( [7,3],[0,6] )1
defdiff(lst1, lst2):
Return the minimum difference between one value fromlst1and one value fromlst2.
Example:
lst1andlst2will be lists of numbers
Only considerabsolutedifferences.
smallest difference

How tocomputer the maximumdifference?
A few matrix and array problems

Given a matrix (2D array with equal dimension), how to compute the sum for the top-right half?
[[3,2,6,8],[9,2,5,7],[0,3,2,3],[1,2,3,4]]
The result should be 42
The key is to figure out the indices
16
[[3,2,6,8],[9,2,5,7],[0,3,2,3],[1,2,3,4]]
When row is 0, column goes from 0 to 3When row is 1, column goes from 1 to 3When row is 2, column goes from 2 to 3When row is 3, column goes from 3 to 3

Given a matrix (2D array with equal dimension), how to compute the maximum for each row and each column?
# compute row max for a given ‘row’rowMax= matrix[row]foriin range(len( matrix[row] ) ):if matrix[row][i] > max:rowMax= matrix[row][i]
But how to go through a column to compute the maximum?
# compute column max for a given ‘column’colMax= matrix[col]foriin range(len( matrix ) ):if matrix[i][col] > max:rowMax= matrix[i][col]
In addition to the row and column maximum, find the maximum of the entire matrix?
deffindMax(matrix,rowMax,colMax):'''Givena matrix, find and return the global max, anarrayofrowmaxand an array of column max '''max = matrix # current maxforiin range(len(matrix) ): # find each row maxrowMax[i] =findRowMax( matrix,i)ifrowMax[i] > max:max =rowMax[i]foriin range(len(matrix)): # find each column maxcolMax[i] =findColMax( matrix,i)ifcolMax[i] > max:max =colMax[i]return max
