Reciprocal Square Root

Compute the reciprocal of the principal square root of a single-precision floating-point number.

The reciprocal of the principal square root is defined as

Installation

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

Usage

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

rsqrtf( x )

Computes the reciprocal (inverse) square root of a single-precision floating-point number.

var v = rsqrtf( 1.0 );
// returns 1.0

v = rsqrtf( 4.0 );
// returns 0.5

v = rsqrtf( 0.0 );
// returns Infinity

v = rsqrtf( NaN );
// returns NaN

v = rsqrtf( Infinity );
// returns 0.0

For negative numbers, the reciprocal square root is not defined.

var v = rsqrtf( -4.0 );
// returns NaN

Examples

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

var x;
var i;

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

Installation

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

Usage

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

stdlib_base_rsqrtf( x )

Computes the reciprocal (inverse) square root of a single-precision floating-point number.

float y = stdlib_base_rsqrtf( 4.0 );
// returns 0.5

The function accepts the following arguments:

• x: [in] float input value.
float stdlib_base_rsqrtf( const float x );

Examples

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

int main() {
float x[] = { 3.14f, 9.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f/0.0f };

float y;
int i;
for ( i = 0; i < 4; i++ ) {
y = stdlib_base_rsqrtf( x[ i ] );
printf( "rsqrt(%f) = %f\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.
