## Class IntMath

• @GwtCompatible(emulated=true)
public final class IntMath
extends Object
A class for arithmetic on values of type int. Where possible, methods are defined and named analogously to their BigInteger counterparts.

The implementations of many methods in this class are based on material from Henry S. Warren, Jr.'s Hacker's Delight, (Addison Wesley, 2002).

Similar functionality for long and for BigInteger can be found in LongMath and BigIntegerMath respectively. For other common operations on int values, see Ints.

• ### Method Detail

• #### ceilingPowerOfTwo

@Beta
public static int ceilingPowerOfTwo​(int x)
Returns the smallest power of two greater than or equal to x. This is equivalent to checkedPow(2, log2(x, CEILING)).
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if x <= 0
ArithmeticException - of the next-higher power of two is not representable as an int, i.e. when x > 2^30
Since:
20.0
• #### floorPowerOfTwo

@Beta
public static int floorPowerOfTwo​(int x)
Returns the largest power of two less than or equal to x. This is equivalent to checkedPow(2, log2(x, FLOOR)).
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if x <= 0
Since:
20.0
• #### isPowerOfTwo

public static boolean isPowerOfTwo​(int x)
Returns true if x represents a power of two.

This differs from Integer.bitCount(x) == 1, because Integer.bitCount(Integer.MIN_VALUE) == 1, but Integer.MIN_VALUE is not a power of two.

• #### divide

public static int divide​(int p,
int q,
RoundingMode mode)
Returns the result of dividing p by q, rounding using the specified RoundingMode.
Throws:
ArithmeticException - if q == 0, or if mode == UNNECESSARY and a is not an integer multiple of b
• #### mod

public static int mod​(int x,
int m)
Returns x mod m, a non-negative value less than m. This differs from x % m, which might be negative.

For example:

mod(7, 4) == 3
mod(-7, 4) == 1
mod(-1, 4) == 3
mod(-8, 4) == 0
mod(8, 4) == 0

Throws:
ArithmeticException - if m <= 0
Remainder Operator
• #### gcd

public static int gcd​(int a,
int b)
Returns the greatest common divisor of a, b. Returns 0 if a == 0 && b == 0.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if a < 0 or b < 0

int b)
Returns the sum of a and b, provided it does not overflow.
Throws:
ArithmeticException - if a + b overflows in signed int arithmetic
• #### checkedSubtract

public static int checkedSubtract​(int a,
int b)
Returns the difference of a and b, provided it does not overflow.
Throws:
ArithmeticException - if a - b overflows in signed int arithmetic
• #### checkedMultiply

public static int checkedMultiply​(int a,
int b)
Returns the product of a and b, provided it does not overflow.
Throws:
ArithmeticException - if a * b overflows in signed int arithmetic
• #### checkedPow

public static int checkedPow​(int b,
int k)
Returns the b to the kth power, provided it does not overflow.

pow(int, int) may be faster, but does not check for overflow.

Throws:
ArithmeticException - if b to the kth power overflows in signed int arithmetic

@Beta
int b)
Returns the sum of a and b unless it would overflow or underflow in which case Integer.MAX_VALUE or Integer.MIN_VALUE is returned, respectively.
Since:
20.0
• #### saturatedSubtract

@Beta
public static int saturatedSubtract​(int a,
int b)
Returns the difference of a and b unless it would overflow or underflow in which case Integer.MAX_VALUE or Integer.MIN_VALUE is returned, respectively.
Since:
20.0
• #### saturatedMultiply

@Beta
public static int saturatedMultiply​(int a,
int b)
Returns the product of a and b unless it would overflow or underflow in which case Integer.MAX_VALUE or Integer.MIN_VALUE is returned, respectively.
Since:
20.0
• #### saturatedPow

@Beta
public static int saturatedPow​(int b,
int k)
Returns the b to the kth power, unless it would overflow or underflow in which case Integer.MAX_VALUE or Integer.MIN_VALUE is returned, respectively.
Since:
20.0
• #### factorial

public static int factorial​(int n)
Returns n!, that is, the product of the first n positive integers, 1 if n == 0, or Integer.MAX_VALUE if the result does not fit in a int.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if n < 0
• #### binomial

public static int binomial​(int n,
int k)
Returns n choose k, also known as the binomial coefficient of n and k, or Integer.MAX_VALUE if the result does not fit in an int.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if n < 0, k < 0 or k > n
• #### mean

public static int mean​(int x,
int y)
Returns the arithmetic mean of x and y, rounded towards negative infinity. This method is overflow resilient.
Since:
