# ASUM

ASUM[x]

computes the sum of the absolute values of elements of the vector x.

# Details and Options

• To use ASUM, you first need to load the BLAS Package using Needs["LinearAlgebra`BLAS`"].
• The following argument must be given:
•  x input expression vector
• For complex vectors x, ASUM computes the total of the sum of the absolute values of the real and imaginary parts taken separately.

## Scope(4)

A real vector:

A complex vector:

An arbitrary-precision vector:

A symbolic vector:

## Properties & Relations(2)

ASUM[x] is equivalent to Apply[Plus,Abs[x]] for non-complex x:

ASUM[x] is equivalent to Apply[Plus,Abs[Re[x]]]+Apply[Plus,Abs[Im[x]]] for complex or symbolic x:
