log2


dissect floating-point numbers into base 2 exponent and mantissa.


Syntax


R = log2(M)
[F, E] = log2(M)

Input argument


M

a variable: a matrix

Output argument


R

result of log2: computes the base 2 logarithm of the elements of X.

F

Mantissa values that satisfy this equation: M= F.*2.^E

E

Exponent values that satisfy this equation: M= F.*2.^E

Description


log2 dissects several numbers into the exponent and mantissa.

[F, E] = log2(M), any zeros in M produce F = 0 and E = 0.

Input values of Inf, -Inf, or NaN are returned unchanged in F with a corresponding exponent of E = 0.

Used function(s)


std::frexp and std::logb C++ functions

Example


x = [1+i,-i;i,2i];
R = log2(x)
[F, E] = log2(x)
