Parameters
Xarray of shape (n_samples_1, n_features)
Yarray of shape (n_samples_2, n_features), default=None
dense_outputbool, default=True

Whether to return dense output even when the input is sparse. If False, the output is sparse if both input arrays are sparse.

New in version 0.20.

Returns
Gram matrixarray of shape (n_samples_1, n_samples_2)
