jax.numpy.bitwise_not(x, /)#

Compute bit-wise inversion, or bit-wise NOT, element-wise.

LAX-backend implementation of numpy.invert().

Original docstring below.

Computes the bit-wise NOT of the underlying binary representation of the integers in the input arrays. This ufunc implements the C/Python operator ~.

For signed integer inputs, the two’s complement is returned. In a two’s-complement system negative numbers are represented by the two’s complement of the absolute value. This is the most common method of representing signed integers on computers [1]. A N-bit two’s-complement system can represent every integer in the range \(-2^{N-1}\) to \(+2^{N-1}-1\).


x (array_like) – Only integer and boolean types are handled.


out – Result. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.

Return type:

ndarray or scalar
