BigIntegerMath ceilingPowerOfTwo() function | Guava | Java

  • Last Updated : 03 Aug, 2021

The ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method of Guava’s BigIntegerMath class returns the smallest power of two greater than or equal to x. This is equivalent to BigInteger.valueOf(2).pow(log2(x, CEILING)).

Syntax:

public static BigInteger 
    ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x)

Parameters: This method takes the number x as parameter whose ceiling power of two is to be found.

Return Value: This method returns the ceiling power of two of the given number x.

Exceptions: This method throws IllegalArgumentException if x <= 0.



Below examples illustrates the BigIntegerMath.ceilingPowerOfTwo() method:

Example 1:




// Java code to show implementation of
// ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method
// of Guava's BigIntegerMath class
  
import java.math.*;
import com.google.common.math.BigIntegerMath;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        BigInteger n1 = BigInteger.valueOf(25);
  
        // Using ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method of
        // Guava's BigIntegerMath class
        BigInteger ans = BigIntegerMath.ceilingPowerOfTwo(n1);
  
        System.out.println("Smallest power of 2 greater "
                           + "than or equal to "
                           + n1 + " is: " + ans);
  
        BigInteger n2 = BigInteger.valueOf(65);
  
        // Using ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method of
        // Guava's BigIntegerMath class
        BigInteger ans1 = BigIntegerMath.ceilingPowerOfTwo(n2);
  
        System.out.println("Smallest power of 2 greater "
                           + "than or equal to "
                           + n2 + " is: " + ans1);
    }
}

Output:

Smallest power of 2 greater than or equal to 25 is: 32
Smallest power of 2 greater than or equal to 65 is: 128

Example 2:




// Java code to show implementation of
// ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method
// of Guava's BigIntegerMath class
  
import java.math.*;
import com.google.common.math.BigIntegerMath;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        try {
  
            BigInteger n = BigInteger.valueOf(0);
  
            // Using ceilingPowerOfTwo(BigInteger x) method of
            // Guava's BigIntegerMath class
            // This should raise "IllegalArgumentException"
            // as n is <= 0
            BigInteger ans = BigIntegerMath.ceilingPowerOfTwo(n);
  
            System.out.println("Smallest power of 2 greater "
                               + "than or equal to n is : " + ans);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception: " + e);
        }
    }
}

Output:

Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: x (0) must be > 0
