Specifications for special values of the complex functions are defined according to the following formula
abs(a) = hypot(RE(a),IM(a))
.
The
abs
function does not generate any errors.

API

Syntax
Buffer API
namespace oneapi::mkl::vm { sycl::event abs(sycl::queue & exec_queue, std::int64_t n, sycl::buffer<T> & a, sycl::buffer<T> & y, oneapi::mkl::vm::mode mode = oneapi::mkl::vm::mode::not_defined); }
namespace oneapi::mkl::vm { sycl::event abs(sycl::queue & exec_queue, sycl::buffer<T> & a, oneapi::mkl::slice sa, sycl::buffer<T> & y, oneapi::mkl::slice sy, oneapi::mkl::vm::mode mode = oneapi::mkl::vm::mode::not_defined); }
USM API
namespace oneapi::mkl::vm { sycl::event abs(sycl::queue & exec_queue, std::int64_t n, T const * a, T * y, std::vector<cl::sycl::event> const & depends = {}, oneapi::mkl::vm::mode mode = oneapi::mkl::vm::mode::not_defined); }
namespace oneapi::mkl::vm { sycl::event abs(sycl::queue & exec_queue, T const * a, oneapi::mkl::slice sa, T * y, oneapi::mkl::slice sy, std::vector<cl::sycl::event> const & depends = {}, oneapi::mkl::vm::mode mode = oneapi::mkl::vm::mode::not_defined); }

Input Parameters
Buffer API
exec_queue
The queue where the routine should be executed.
n
Specifies the number of elements to be calculated.
a
The buffer containing input vector.
sa
Slice selector for
a
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
sy
Slice selector for
y
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
mode
Overrides the global VM mode setting for this function call. See set_mode function for possible values and their description. This is an optional parameter. The default value is
mode::not_defined
.
USM API
exec_queue
The queue where the routine should be executed.
n
Specifies the number of elements to be calculated.
a
Pointer to the input vector.
sa
Slice selector for
a
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
sy
Slice selector for
y
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
depends
Vector of dependent events (to wait for input data to be ready). This is an optional parameter. The default is an empty vector.
mode
Overrides the global VM mode setting for this function call. See the set_mode function for possible values and their description. This is an optional parameter. The default value is
mode::not_defined
.
Output Parameters
Buffer API
y
The buffer containing the output vector.
return value (event)
Computation end event.
USM API
y
Pointer to the output vector.
return value (event)
Computation end event.
