Anonymous Functions (lambda Functions)

In Python, anonymous function is a function that is defined without a name. While normal functions are defined using the def keyword, in Python anonymous functions are defined using the lambda keyword. Hence, anonymous functions are also called lambda functions.

The lambda operator or lambda function is a way to create small anonymous functions, i.e. functions without a name. These functions are throw-away functions, i.e. they are just needed where they have been created.

Syntax:

lambda arguments: expression

Examples:

Using Lambda Function

Lambda with two parameters

Nested Lambda

Complex Lambda Functions

Use lambda functions when an anonymous function is required for a short period of time.
