abs2

Compute the squared absolute value of a double-precision floating-point number.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-abs2

Usage

var abs2 = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-abs2' );

abs2( x )

Computes the squared absolute value of a double-precision floating-point number.

var v = abs2( -1.0 );
// returns 1.0

v = abs2( 2.0 );
// returns 4.0

v = abs2( 0.0 );
// returns 0.0

v = abs2( -0.0 );
// returns 0.0

v = abs2( NaN );
// returns NaN

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var abs2 = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-abs2' );

var x;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = round( randu() * 100.0 ) - 50.0;
console.log( 'abs2(%d) = %d', x, abs2( x ) );
}

Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-abs2

Usage

#include "stdlib/math/base/special/abs2.h"

stdlib_base_abs2( x )

Computes the squared absolute value of a double-precision floating-point number.

double y = stdlib_base_abs2( -5.0 );
// returns 25.0

The function accepts the following arguments:

• x: [in] double input value.
double stdlib_base_abs2( const double x );

Examples

#include "stdlib/math/base/special/abs2.h"
#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
double x[] = { 3.14, -3.14, 0.0, 0.0/0.0 };

double y;
int i;
for ( i = 0; i < 4; i++ ) {
y = stdlib_base_abs2( x[ i ] );
printf( "abs2(%lf) = %lf\n", x[ i ], y );
}
}

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
