Notes

This is the same as ndarray.sum, except that where an ndarray would be returned, a matrix object is returned instead.

Examples

>>> x = np.matrix([[1, 2], [4, 3]])
>>> x.sum()
10
>>> x.sum(axis=1)
matrix([[3],
        [7]])
>>> x.sum(axis=1, dtype='float')
matrix([[ 3.],
        [ 7.]])
>>> out = np.zeros((1, 2), dtype='float')
>>> x.sum(axis=1, dtype='float', out=out)
matrix([[ 3.],
        [ 7.]])
