powx

Computes vector a to the scalar power b.

Syntax

Buffer API:

void powx(queue &exec_queue, int64_t n, buffer<T, 1> &a, T b, buffer<T, 1> &y, uint64_t mode = mode::not_defined, error_handler<T> errhandler = {})

USM API:

event powx(queue &exec_queue, int64_t n, T *a, T b, T *y, vector_class<event> const &depends = {}, uint64_t mode = mode::not_defined, error_handler<T> errhandler = {})

Description

The powx function computes a to the power b for a vector a and a scalar b.

The real function powx has certain limitations on the input range of a and b parameters. Specifically, if a[i] is positive, then b may be arbitrary. For negative a[i], the value of b must be an integer (either positive or negative).

The complex function powx has no input range limitations.

Special values and VM Error Status treatment are the same as for the powfunction.

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 a containing 1st input vector of size n.

b

Fixed value of power b.

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.

errhandler

Sets local error handling mode for this function call. See the create_error_handler function for arguments and their descriptions. This is an optional parameter. The local error handler is disabled by default.

USM API:

exec_queue

The queue where the routine should be executed.

n

Specifies the number of elements to be calculated.

a

Pointer a to the 1st input vector of size n.

b

Fixed value of power b.

depends

Vector of dependent events (to wait for input data to be ready).

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.

errhandler

Sets local error handling mode for this function call. See the create_error_handler function for arguments and their descriptions. This is an optional parameter. The local error handler is disabled by default.

Output Parameters

Buffer API:

y

The buffer y containing the output vector of size n.

USM API:

y

Pointer y to the output vector of size n.

return value (event)

Function end event.
