# Square Function (G Dataflow)

Generates the square function for any real number.

A real number.

## square(x)

The value of the square function for the given value of x.

## Algorithm for Calculating the Square Function

The following equation defines the square function.

$\mathrm{square}\left(x\right)=\left\{\begin{array}{cc}1& \text{if}2n\le \text{x}\le 2n+1\\ 0& \text{elsewhere}\end{array}$
where n is an integer.

The following illustration shows the graph for square(x) * square(x - 0.8) in the interval (-4.0, 4.0).
