    datatype_icon

    formula

    Formula of n independent variables. The formula can contain any number of valid variables.

    Entering Valid Variables

    This node accepts variables that use the following format rule: variables must start with a letter or an underscore followed by any number of alphanumeric characters or underscores.

    datatype_icon

    x values

    Values of the variables where this node calculates function values.

    This input accepts the following data types:

    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

    For 1D array inputs, each array element represents the value of the corresponding variable in variables.

    For 2D array inputs, the ith row of the array contains the fixed values of the ith variable of the n-dimensional function. The other dimension of the array marks the n-dimension points at which this node calculates function values.

    datatype_icon

    variables

    n independent variables of the given formula. variables has a one-to-one relation with x values.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    y value

    Function value(s) at x values

    This output can return the following data types:

    • Double-precision, floating-point number
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

    Algorithm for Calculating y value

    If x values is a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers, this node calculates y value using the following equation: y = f(x1, x2, ..., xn), where n is the number of independent variables in the given formula.

    If x values is a 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers, this node calculates y values using the following equation:

    yi = f(x1i, x2i, …, xni)

    where

    • n is the number of dimensions of the given set of points
    • f is an n-dimensional function given by the formula
    • x1, x2, …, xn are n independent variables

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    The following table shows examples of the inputs and outputs of this node.

    formula x values variables y values
    3*x1 + 4*x2 + x3^2 [1, -1, 2] [x1, x2, x3] 3
    [1, 0; -1, 4; 2, 1] [3,17]
    spd-note-note
    Note  

    In x values, [1, -1, 2] are the values for [x1, x2, x3] in the first iteration; [0, 4, 1] for the second.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
