Hi experts.

I'm trying to replace some values in a Numpy array. I wanna conserve the unchanged array too.

sage: import numpy as np
sage: N = np.array([[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[8,9,7]])

I call K the new array (with some values repaced):

sage: K = N
sage: K
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [4, 5, 6],
       [8, 9, 7]])
sage: K[1,2] = 9
sage: K
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [4, 5, 9],
       [8, 9, 7]])

But here is the problem: the original array is changed too!!

sage: N
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [4, 5, 9],
       [8, 9, 7]])

How can I change only the array K (and conserve without change the original array N)?

Waiting for your answers.

Thanks a lot!

You should read the basic numpy tutorial. These introductory things are well explained there. Copying arrays is explained here.

Hello,

when assigning N to K, no data is copied, so you working on the original data, To keep the original, you need a deep copy of N:

 K=N.copy()
