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 \(y = |x|\).


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


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