jax.numpy.bitwise_left_shift(x, y, /)[source]#

Shift the bits of an integer to the left.

LAX-backend implementation of numpy.left_shift().

Original docstring below.

Bits are shifted to the left by appending x2 0s at the right of x1. Since the internal representation of numbers is in binary format, this operation is equivalent to multiplying x1 by 2**x2.


out – Return x1 with bits shifted x2 times to the left. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

Return type:

array of integer type

  • x (jax.typing.ArrayLike)

  • y (jax.typing.ArrayLike)
