The bitwise AND operation on the corresponding bits of binary representations of integers in input arrays is computed by np.bitwise_and() function.
import numpy as np print 'Binary equivalents of 13 and 17:' a,b = 13,17 print bin(a), bin(b) print '\n' print 'Bitwise AND of 13 and 17:' print np.bitwise_and(13, 17)
Its output is as follows −
Binary equivalents of 13 and 17: 0b1101 0b10001 Bitwise AND of 13 and 17: 1
You can verify the output as follows. Consider the following bitwise AND truth table.
