- numpy.ldexp(x1, x2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'ldexp'>¶
Returns x1 * 2**x2, element-wise.
The mantissas x1 and twos exponents x2 are used to construct floating point numbers
x1 * 2**x2.
Array of multipliers.
- x2array_like, int
Array of twos exponents. If
x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape (which becomes the shape of the output).
- outndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and 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 ufunc docs.
- yndarray or scalar
The result of
x1 * 2**x2. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.
Complex dtypes are not supported, they will raise a TypeError.
ldexpis useful as the inverse of
frexp, if used by itself it is more clear to simply use the expression
x1 * 2**x2.
>>> np.ldexp(5, np.arange(4)) array([ 5., 10., 20., 40.], dtype=float16)
>>> x = np.arange(6) >>> np.ldexp(*np.frexp(x)) array([ 0., 1., 2., 3., 4., 5.])
