# jax.numpy.power¶

jax.numpy.power(x1, x2)[source]

First array elements raised to powers from second array, element-wise.

LAX-backend implementation of power(). Original docstring below.

power(x1, x2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=’same_kind’, order=’K’, dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj])

Raise each base in x1 to the positionally-corresponding power in x2. x1 and x2 must be broadcastable to the same shape. Note that an integer type raised to a negative integer power will raise a ValueError.

Parameters
• x1 (array_like) – The bases.

• x2 (array_like) – The exponents. If x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape (which becomes the shape of the output).

Returns

y – The bases in x1 raised to the exponents in x2. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

Return type

ndarray

float_power()

power function that promotes integers to float

Examples

Cube each element in a list.

>>> x1 = range(6)
>>> x1
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
>>> np.power(x1, 3)
array([  0,   1,   8,  27,  64, 125])


Raise the bases to different exponents.

>>> x2 = [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.0, 2.0, 1.0]
>>> np.power(x1, x2)
array([  0.,   1.,   8.,  27.,  16.,   5.])


>>> x2 = np.array([[1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1], [1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1]])
