Java.lang.Math.nextUp() Method

Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.Math.nextUp(float d) returns the floating-point value adjacent to d in the direction of positive infinity. This method is semantically equivalent to nextAfter(d, Float.POSITIVE_INFINITY); however, a nextUp implementation may run faster than its equivalent nextAfter call. Special cases:

  • If the argument is NaN, the result is NaN.

  • If the argument is positive infinity, the result is positive infinity.

  • If the argument is zero, the result is Float.MIN_VALUE

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Math.nextUp() method

public static float nextUp(float d)

Parameters

  • d -- starting floating-point value

Return Value

This method returns the adjacent floating-point value closer to positive infinity.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Math.nextUp() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // get two float numbers
      float x = 98759.765f;
      float y = 154.28764f;

      // print the next floating numbers towards positive infinity
      System.out.println("Math.nextUp(" + x + ")=" + Math.nextUp(x));
      System.out.println("Math.nextUp(" + y + ")=" + Math.nextUp(y));

   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Math.nextUp(98759.765f)=98759.77
Math.nextUp(154.28764f)=154.28766
