Is there any padding function available to pad a matrix or array?

If yes, Please share, if not than also a response would be appreciated.

Please clarify with a minimal working example:

  1. presumably you want to pad with 0s, but how? rows, columns, above, below, …
  2. what would you do with the result? you may be much better off with sparse matrices.

The padarray function in the Images package might be what you are looking for.
E.g.

julia> using Images

julia> x = [1 2 3;4 5 6]
2×3 Array{Int64,2}:
 1  2  3
 4  5  6

julia> y = padarray(x, Pad(1, 1))
OffsetArrays.OffsetArray{Int64,2,Array{Int64,2}} with indices 0:3×0:4:
 1  1  2  3  3
 1  1  2  3  3
 4  4  5  6  6
 4  4  5  6  6

Where exactly is this padarray in the images package? I could not find it.

ImageFiltering.jl has one for sure…

EDIT: For reference, here’s the docs for padarray: https://juliaimages.github.io/latest/function_reference.html#ImageFiltering.padarray

It lives in ImageFiltering.jl but is exported when using Images as @GunnarFarneback pointed out above.

You can use resample function in FourierTools package.

The advice from @Gnimuc to use PaddedViews.jl seems pretty good:

using PaddedViews
a = rand((sqrt(2),im), 3, 3)
b = PaddedView(π, a, (4, 5))

  1.41421  im        im        π  π
 im        im         1.41421  π  π
  1.41421   1.41421  im        π  π
  π         π         π        π  π
