_mm256_hypot_pd

Computes the length of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle. Vector variant of hypot(x) function for a 128-bit/256-bit vector argument of float64 values.

Syntax

extern __m128d _mm_hypot_pd(__m128d v1, __m128d v2);
extern __m256d _mm256_hypot_pd(__m256d v1, __m256d v2);
Arguments
v1
vector with float64 values
v2
vector with float64 values
Description
Computes the length of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle with sides
v1
and
v2
, defined by:
sqrt (
v1
2
+
v2
2
)
Returns
128-bit/256-bit vector with the result of the operation.
Many routines in the
