#include <math_ops.h>

Selects elements from x or y, depending on condition.


The x, and y tensors must all have the same shape, and the output will also have that shape.

The condition tensor must be a scalar if x and y are scalars. If x and y are vectors or higher rank, then condition must be either a scalar, a vector with size matching the first dimension of x, or must have the same shape as x.

The condition tensor acts as a mask that chooses, based on the value at each element, whether the corresponding element / row in the output should be taken from x (if true) or y (if false).

If condition is a vector and x and y are higher rank matrices, then it chooses which row (outer dimension) to copy from x and y. If condition has the same shape as x and y, then it chooses which element to copy from x and y.

For example:

```python 'condition' tensor is [[True, False]

[False, True]]

't' is [[1, 2],

[3, 4]]

'e' is [[5, 6],

[7, 8]]

select(condition, t, e) # => [[1, 6], [7, 4]]

'condition' tensor is [True, False]

't' is [[1, 2],

[3, 4]]

'e' is [[5, 6],

[7, 8]]

select(condition, t, e) ==> [[1, 2], [7, 8]]



  • scope: A Scope object
  • x: = A Tensor which may have the same shape as condition. If condition is rank 1, x may have higher rank, but its first dimension must match the size of condition.
  • y: = A Tensor with the same type and shape as x.


  • Output: = A Tensor with the same type and shape as x and y.
