Record arrays allow you to access fields as elements of an array using
arr.a and arr.b
numpy.recarray.var () returns the variance of array elements along a given axis.
numpy.recarray.var (axis = None, dtype = None, out = None, ddof = 0, keepdims = False)
axis: [int or tuples of int] axis along which we want to calculate the variance. Otherwise, it will consider arr to be flattened (works on all the axis). axis = 0 means variance along the column and axis = 1 means variance along the row.
dtype: [data-type, optional] Type we desire while computing variance.
out: [ndarray, optional] A location into which the result is stored.
-" If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to.
-" If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned.
ddof: [int, optional] Delta Degrees of Freedom ”: the divisor used in the calculation is N - ddof, where N represents the number of elements. By default ddof is zero.
keepdims: [bool, optional] If this is set to True, the axes which are reduced are left in the result as dimensions with size one. With this option, the result will broadcast correctly against the input array.
Return: [ndarray] If out = None, returns a new array containing the variance; otherwise, a reference to the output array is returned.
