xray.ufuncs.fabs(*args, **kwargs)

xray specific variant of numpy.fabs. Handles xray.Dataset, xray.DataArray, xray.Variable, numpy.ndarray and dask.array.Array objects with automatic dispatching.

Documentation from numpy:

fabs(x[, out])

Compute the absolute values element-wise.

This function returns the absolute values (positive magnitude) of the data in x. Complex values are not handled, use absolute to find the absolute values of complex data.


x : array_like

The array of numbers for which the absolute values are required. If x is a scalar, the result y will also be a scalar.

out : ndarray, optional

Array into which the output is placed. Its type is preserved and it must be of the right shape to hold the output. See doc.ufuncs.


y : {ndarray, scalar}

The absolute values of x, the returned values are always floats.
