Python – tensorflow.math.sign()
• Last Updated : 12 Jun, 2020

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

sign() is used to find element wise indication of the sign of a number. Specifically,

y = sign(x) = -1 if x < 0; 0 if x == 0; 1 if x > 0.

For complex numbers, y = sign(x) = x / |x| if x != 0, otherwise y = 0.

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

Parameters:

• x: It’s a tesnor. Allowed dtypes are bfloat16, half, float32, float64, int32, int64, complex64, complex128.
• name(optional): It defines the name for the operation.

Return: It return a tensor of same dtype as x.

Example 1:

## Python3

 `# importing the library``import` `tensorflow as tf`` ` `# Initializing the input tensor``a ``=` `tf.constant([``0``, ``1``, ``-``2``, ``3``, ``-``4``], dtype ``=` `tf.float64)`` ` `# Printing the input tensor``print``(``'a: '``, a)`` ` `# Calculating result``res ``=` `tf.math.sign(x ``=` `a)`` ` `# Printing the result``print``(``'Result: '``, res)`

Output:

```a:  tf.Tensor([ 0.  1. -2.  3. -4.], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)
Result:  tf.Tensor([ 0.  1. -1.  1. -1.], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)

```

Example 2:

## Python3

 `# importing the library``import` `tensorflow as tf`` ` `# Initializing the input tensor``a ``=` `tf.constant([ ``1``-``5j``, ``-``2` `+` `3j``, ``-``3``-``7j``, ``-``4` `+` `8j``], dtype ``=` `tf.complex128)`` ` `# Printing the input tensor``print``(``'a: '``, a)`` ` `# Calculating result``res ``=` `tf.math.sign(x ``=` `a)`` ` `# Printing the result``print``(``'Result: '``, res)`

Output:

```a:  tf.Tensor([ 1.-5.j -2.+3.j -3.-7.j -4.+8.j], shape=(4, ), dtype=complex128)
Result:  tf.Tensor(
[ 0.19611614-0.98058068j -0.5547002 +0.83205029j -0.3939193 -0.91914503j
-0.4472136 +0.89442719j], shape=(4, ), dtype=complex128)```
