Return the non-negative square-root of an array, element-wise.

LAX-backend implementation of sqrt().

Original docstring below.


x (array_like) – The values whose square-roots are required.


y – An array of the same shape as x, containing the positive square-root of each element in x. If any element in x is complex, a complex array is returned (and the square-roots of negative reals are calculated). If all of the elements in x are real, so is y, with negative elements returning nan. If out was provided, y is a reference to it. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.
