The abs function has the following parameters:
Parameter
Default Value
Description
algorithmFPType
float
The floating-point type that the algorithm uses for intermediate computations. Can be
float
or
double
.
method
defaultDense
Available computation methods:
  • defaultDense
    - performance-oriented method
  • fastCSR
    - performance-oriented method for CSR numeric tables

Algorithm Input

The abs function accepts the input described below. Pass the Input ID as a parameter to the methods that provide input for your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.
Input ID
Input
data
Pointer to the numeric table of size
n
x
p
. The value of
method
determines the type of this numeric table:
  • method
    =
    defaultDense
    : an object of any class derived from
    NumericTable.
  • method
    =
    fastCSR
    : an object of the
    CSRNumericTable
    class.

Algorithm Output

The abs function calculates the result described below. Pass the Result ID as a parameter to the methods that access the results of your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.

numeric table with the matrix
Y
. The value of
method
determines the type of this numeric table:
  • method
    =
    defaultDense
    : by default, an object of the
    HomogenNumericTable
    class, but can be an object of any class derived from
    NumericTable
    except
    PackedTriangularMatrix
    ,
    PackedSymmetricMatrix
    , and
    CSRNumericTable
    .
  • method
    =
    fastCSR
    : an object of the
    CSRNumericTable
    class.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
