realsqrt

Square root for nonnegative real arrays

Syntax

Y = realsqrt(X)

Description

example

Y = realsqrt(X) returns the square root of each element of array X. The size of Y is the same as the size of X.

If you want negative and complex numbers to return complex results instead of error messages, then use sqrt instead.

Examples

Create a 4-by-4 matrix of real, positive values.

X = magic(4)
X = 4×4
