metatensor.drop_blocks(tensor: TensorMap, keys: Labels, copy: bool = False) TensorMap[source]

Drop specified key/block pairs from a TensorMap.

  • tensor (TensorMap) – the TensorMap to drop the key-block pair from.

  • keys (Labels) – a Labels object containing the keys of the blocks to drop

  • copy (bool) – if True, the returned TensorMap is constructed by copying the blocks from the input tensor. If False (default), the values of the blocks in the output TensorMap reference the same data as the input tensor. The latter can be useful for limiting memory usage, but should be used with caution when manipulating the underlying data.


the input TensorMap with the specified key/block pairs dropped.
