3.255. __nv_remainderf

Prototype:

```float @__nv_remainderf(float %x, float %y)

```

Description:

Compute double-precision floating-point remainder r of dividing x by y for nonzero y. Thus $r=x-ny$ . The value n is the integer value nearest $\frac{x}{y}$ . In the case when $|n-\frac{x}{y}|=\frac{1}{2}$ , the even n value is chosen.

Returns:

• __nv_remainderf(x, 0) returns NaN.

• __nv_remainderf( $±\infty$ , y) returns NaN.

• __nv_remainderf(x, $±\infty$ ) returns x for finite x.
