nlcpy.fabs = <ufunc 'nlcpy_fabs'>

Computes the element-wise absolute value.

This function returns the absolute values (positive magnitude) of the data in x. Complex values are not handled, use absolute to find the absolute values of complex data.


Input an array or a scalar.

outndarray or None, optional

A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.

wherearray_like, optional

This condition is broadcast over the input. At locations where the condition is True, the out array will be set to the ufunc result. Elsewhere, the out array will retain its original value. Note that if an uninitialized out array is created via the default out=None, locations within it where the condition is False will remain uninitialized.


For other keyword-only arguments, see the section Optional Keyword Arguments.


A ndarray, containing the absolute value for each element in x. If x is a scalar, this function returns the result as a 0-dimension ndarray.



Computes the element-wise absolute value.


>>> import nlcpy as vp
>>> vp.fabs(-1)
>>> x = vp.array([-1.2, 1.2])
>>> vp.fabs(x)
array([1.2, 1.2])
