Python – tensorflow.math.erf()

TensorFlow is open-source Python library designed by Google to develop Machine Learning models and deep learning  neural networks. 

erf() is used to compute element wise Gauss error function.

Syntax: tensorflow.math.erf(   x, name)

Parameters:

  • x: It’s the input tensor. Allowed dtypes are bfloat16, half, float32, float64.
  • name(optional): It defines the name for the operation.

Returns: It returns a tensor of same dtype as x.

# importing the library
import tensorflow as tf
  
# Initializing the input tensor
a = tf.constant([1, 2, 3, 4, 5], dtype = tf.float64)
  
# Printing the input tensor
print('Input: ', a)
  
# Calculating Gauss error
res = tf.math.erf(x = a)
  
# Printing the result
print('Result: ', res)

Output:

Input:  tf.Tensor([1. 2. 3. 4. 5.], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)
Result:  tf.Tensor([0.84270079 0.99532227 0.99997791 0.99999998 1.        ], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)
