### tf.abs(x, name=None)

See the guide: Math > Basic Math Functions

Computes the absolute value of a tensor.

Given a tensor of real numbers x, this operation returns a tensor containing the absolute value of each element in x. For example, if x is an input element and y is an output element, this operation computes $$y = |x|$$.

#### Args:

• x: A Tensor or SparseTensor of type float32, float64, int32, or int64.
• name: A name for the operation (optional).

#### Returns:

A Tensor or SparseTensor the same size and type as x with absolute values.
