# Python – tensorflow.math.xlogy()

• Last Updated : 16 Jun, 2020

TensorFlow is open-source Python library designed by Google to develop Machine Learning models and deep learning  neural networks.

xlogy() is used to compute element wise x * log(y).

Syntax: tensorflow.math.xlog1py(x, y, name)

Parameters:

• x: It’s a tensor. Allowed dtypes are half, float32, float64, complex64, complex128.
• y: It’s a tensor of same dtype as x.
• name(optional): It defines the name for the operation.

Returns: It returns a tensor.

Example 1:

## Python3

 `# importing the library ` `import` `tensorflow as tf ` ` `  `# Initializing the input tensor ` `a ``=` `tf.constant([ ``-``5``, ``-``7``, ``2``, ``0``, ``7``], dtype ``=` `tf.float64) ` `b ``=` `tf.constant([ ``1``, ``3``, ``9``, ``4``, ``7``], dtype ``=` `tf.float64) ` ` `  `# Printing the input tensor ` `print``(``'a: '``, a) ` `print``(``'b: '``, b) ` ` `  `# Calculating result ` `res ``=` `tf.math.xlogy(a, b) ` ` `  `# Printing the result ` `print``(``'Result: '``, res) `

Output:

```a:  tf.Tensor([-5. -7.  2.  0.  7.], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)
b:  tf.Tensor([1. 3. 9. 4. 7.], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)
Result:  tf.Tensor([-0.         -7.69028602  4.39444915  0.         13.62137104], shape=(5, ), dtype=float64)

```

Example 2:

## Python3

 `# importing the library ` `import` `tensorflow as tf ` ` `  `# Initializing the input tensor ` `a ``=` `tf.constant([ ``-``5` `+` `2j``, ``-``7``-``5j``, ``2` `+` `2j``, ``5``-``3j``, ``7` `+` `6j``], dtype ``=` `tf.complex128) ` `b ``=` `tf.constant([ ``0` `+` `0j``, ``3``-``1j``, ``9` `+` `5j``, ``4``-``3j``, ``-``6``-``8j``], dtype ``=` `tf.complex128) ` ` `  `# Printing the input tensor ` `print``(``'a: '``, a) ` `print``(``'b: '``, b) ` ` `  `# Calculating result ` `res ``=` `tf.math.xlogy(a, b) ` ` `  `# Printing the result ` `print``(``'Result: '``, res) `

Output:

```a:  tf.Tensor([-5.+2.j -7.-5.j  2.+2.j  5.-3.j  7.+6.j], shape=(5, ), dtype=complex128)
b:  tf.Tensor([ 0.+0.j  3.-1.j  9.+5.j  4.-3.j -6.-8.j], shape=(5, ), dtype=complex128)
Result:  tf.Tensor(
[        inf       -infj -9.6678006 -3.50420885j  3.64924209+5.6776361j
6.11668624-8.04581928j 29.40388026-1.68457149j], shape=(5, ), dtype=complex128)
