RenderScript Mathematical Constants and Functions

Overview

The mathematical functions below can be applied to scalars and vectors. When applied to vectors, the returned value is a vector of the function applied to each entry of the input.

For example:
float3 a, b;
// The following call sets
// a.x to sin(b.x),
// a.y to sin(b.y), and
// a.z to sin(b.z).
a = sin(b);

See Vector Math Functions for functions like distance() and length() that interpret instead the input as a single vector in n-dimensional space.

The precision of the mathematical operations on 32 bit floats is affected by the pragmas rs_fp_relaxed and rs_fp_full. Under rs_fp_relaxed, subnormal values may be flushed to zero and rounding may be done towards zero. In comparison, rs_fp_full requires correct handling of subnormal values, i.e. smaller than 1.17549435e-38f. rs_fp_rull also requires round to nearest with ties to even.

Different precision/speed tradeoffs can be achieved by using variants of the common math functions. Functions with a name starting with

  • native_: May have custom hardware implementations with weaker precision. Additionally, subnormal values may be flushed to zero, rounding towards zero may be used, and NaN and infinity input may not be handled correctly.
  • half_: May perform internal computations using 16 bit floats. Additionally, subnormal values may be flushed to zero, and rounding towards zero may be used.

Returns the remainder of (numerator / denominator), where the quotient is rounded towards the nearest integer.

The function fmod() is similar but rounds toward the closest interger. For example, fmod(-3.8f, 2.f) returns -1.8f (-3.8f - -1.f * 2.f) while remainder(-3.8f, 2.f) returns 0.2f (-3.8f - -2.f * 2.f).

Parameters
numeratorNumerator.
denominatorDenominator.
quotient*quotient will be set to the integer quotient.
Returns
Remainder, precise only for the low three bits.

Returns the quotient and the remainder of (numerator / denominator).

Only the sign and lowest three bits of the quotient are guaranteed to be accurate.

This function is useful for implementing periodic functions. The low three bits of the quotient gives the quadrant and the remainder the distance within the quadrant. For example, an implementation of sin(x) could call remquo(x, PI / 2.f, &quadrant) to reduce very large value of x to something within a limited range.

Example: remquo(-23.5f, 8.f, &quot) sets the lowest three bits of quot to 3 and the sign negative. It returns 0.5f.
