jax.numpy.less

jax.numpy.less(x1, x2)

Return the truth value of (x1 < x2) element-wise.

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

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

Parameters

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

Returns

out – Output array, element-wise comparison of x1 and x2. Typically of type bool, unless dtype=object is passed. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

Return type

ndarray or scalar

Examples

>>> np.less([1, 2], [2, 2])
array([ True, False])
