jax.numpy.lcm

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

Returns the lowest common multiple of |x1| and |x2|

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

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

Parameters

x2 (x1,) – Arrays of values. If x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape (which becomes the shape of the output).

Returns

y – The lowest common multiple of the absolute value of the inputs This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

Return type

ndarray or scalar

>>> np.lcm.reduce([40, 12, 20])
120
>>> np.lcm(np.arange(6), 20)
array([ 0, 20, 20, 60, 20, 20])
