polars.Expr.hash#

Expr.hash(
seed: int = 0,
seed_1: int | None = None,
seed_2: int | None = None,
seed_3: int | None = None,
) Self[source]#

Hash the elements in the selection.

The hash value is of type UInt64.

Parameters:
seed

Random seed parameter. Defaults to 0.

seed_1

Random seed parameter. Defaults to seed if not set.

seed_2

Random seed parameter. Defaults to seed if not set.

seed_3

Random seed parameter. Defaults to seed if not set.

Notes

This implementation of hash does not guarantee stable results across different Polars versions. Its stability is only guaranteed within a single version.

Examples

>>> df = pl.DataFrame(
...     {
...         "a": [1, 2, None],
...         "b": ["x", None, "z"],
...     }
... )
>>> df.with_columns(pl.all().hash(10, 20, 30, 40))
shape: (3, 2)
