Dyadic (TwoArgument) Form: Minus A8
The minus function subtracts argument B from argument A. The arguments can be
numeric scalars, vectors, or other arrays. The arguments must be the same shape un
less one of the arguments is a scalar or any singleelement array. If the arguments
are the same shape, the result has the same shape as the arguments:
If one argument is a scalar or a singleelement array, the shape of the result is the
same as that of the other input argument. The single element is applied to every
element of the multielement array:
a
The x Function: Signum, Times
Monadic (OneArgument) Form: Signum' XB
The signum function indicates the sjgn of the argument: if the argument is negative,
1 is the result; if the argument is zero, then 0 is the result; if the argument is posi
tive, 1 is the result. The argument can be a numeric scalar, vector, or other array.
The shape of the result is the same as that of the argument:
