Detailed Description

template<typename number>
struct numbers::NumberTraits< number >

A structure that, together with its partial specializations NumberTraits<std::complex<number> >, provides traits and member functions that make it possible to write templates that work on both real number types and complex number types. This template is mostly used to implement linear algebra classes such as vectors and matrices that work for both real and complex numbers.

Member Typedef Documentation

template<typename number>
using numbers::NumberTraits< number >::real_type = number

For this data type, alias the corresponding real type. Since the general template is selected for all data types that are not specializations of std::complex<T>, the underlying type must be real- values, so the real_type is equal to the underlying type.

Member Function Documentation

template<typename number>
const number & numbers::NumberTraits< number >::conjugate ( const number &  x)
static

Return the complex-conjugate of the given number. Since the general template is selected if number is not a complex data type, this function simply returns the given number.

Note
This function can also be used in CUDA device code.

Definition at line 466 of file numbers.h.

template<typename number>
NumberTraits< number >::real_type numbers::NumberTraits< number >::abs_square ( const number &  x)
static

Return the square of the absolute value of the given number. Since the general template is chosen for types not equal to std::complex, this function simply returns the square of the given number.

Note
This function can also be used in CUDA device code.

Definition at line 475 of file numbers.h.

template<typename number>
NumberTraits< number >::real_type numbers::NumberTraits< number >::abs ( const number &  x)
static

Return the absolute value of a number.

Member Data Documentation

template<typename number>
const bool numbers::NumberTraits< number >::is_complex = false
static

A flag that specifies whether the template type given to this class is complex or real. Since the general template is selected for non-complex types, the answer is false.
