Indexing and slicing a tensor in PyTorch refers to selecting a specific part of a tensor, which can be done using a combination of indices and slices. This is useful for selecting tensor parts, such as a subset of rows or columns or a certain number of elements along a certain dimension. Indexing and slicing can be used to select and manipulate tensor parts, which can be used for various operations, such as creating sub-tensors from a larger tensor or applying certain operations to only a subset of elements in a tensor.
A tensor in Python is a multi-dimensional array used to store numerical data. It is a fundamental data structure in deep learning models like convolutional neural networks (CNNs). Tensors are usually represented as a matrix of numbers and can be manipulated using various operations such as addition, multiplication, and division.
Indexing and slicing of tensors in PyTorch are the same as indexing and slicing lists in Python.
- To retrieve a single tensor element, use the indexing operator  with the corresponding indices.
- To slice a tensor, use the slicing operator: with the corresponding indices.
Here is an example of indexing and slicing a tensor in PyTorch.
Fig 1: Preview of the output that you will get on indexing a tensor in PyTorch.
Fig 2: Preview of the output that you will get on slicing a tensor in PyTorch.
In this solution, we use the torch.tensor Function of the PyTorch library
