# [Numpy-discussion] Smart way to do this?

```a = np.ones(30)
idx = np.array([2, 3, 2])
a += 2 * np.bincount(idx, minlength=len(a))
>>> a
array([ 1.,  1.,  5.,  3.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,
1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,  1.,
1.,  1.,  1.,  1.])

As for speed:

def loop(a, idx):
for i in idx:
a[i] += 2

def count(a, idx):
a += 2 * np.bincount(idx, minlength=len(a))

%timeit loop(np.ones(30), np.array([2, 3, 2]))
10000 loops, best of 3: 19.9 us per loop

%timeit count(np.ones(30), np.array(2, 3, 2]))
100000 loops, best of 3: 19.2 us per loop

So no big difference here.  But go to larger systems and you'll see a huge
difference:

%timeit loop(np.ones(10000), np.random.randint(10000, size=100000))
1 loops, best of 3: 260 ms per loop

%timeit count(np.ones(10000), np.random.randint(10000, size=100000))
100 loops, best of 3: 3.03 ms per loop.
