Return element-wise remainder of division.
LAX-backend implementation of
Original docstring below.
Computes the remainder complementary to the floor_divide function. It is equivalent to the Python modulus operator``x1 % x2`` and has the same sign as the divisor x2. The MATLAB function equivalent to
This should not be confused with:
Python 3.7’s math.remainder and C’s
remainder, which computes the IEEE remainder, which are the complement to
round(x1 / x2).
remfunction and or the C
%operator which is the complement to
int(x1 / x2).
x1 (array_like) – Dividend array.
x2 (array_like) – Divisor array. If
x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape (which becomes the shape of the output).
y – The element-wise remainder of the quotient
floor_divide(x1, x2). This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.
