sqrt and pow 

Illustrates how to use the sqrt and pow Standard Template Library (STL) functions in Visual C++.


template<class T>
inline valarray<T> sqrt(
   const valarray<T>& x
);
template<class T>
inline valarray<T> pow(
   const valarray<T>& x,
   const valarray<T>& y
);
template<class T>
inline valarray<T> pow(
   const valarray<T> x,
   const T& y
);
template<class T>
inline valarray<T> pow(
   const T& x,
   const valarray<T>& y
);

NoteNote

The class/parameter names in the prototype do not match the version in the header file. Some have been modified to improve readability.

sqrt returns an object of class valarray<T>, each of whose elements at index I is the square root of x[I]. pow has three template functions. The first template function returns an object of class valarray<T>, each of whose elements at index I is x[I] raised to the power of y[I]. The second template function stores in element I x[I] raised to the power of y. The third template function stores in element I x raised to the power of y[I].
