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.
