Function type signature
(x: float) => {sign: int, lgamma: float}
For more information, see Function type signatures.



(Required) Value to operate on.


Return the natural logarithm and sign of a gamma function

import "math"

math.lgamma(x: 3.14)// {lgamma: 0.8261387047770286, sign: 1}

Use math.lgamma in map

import "sampledata"
import "math"

    |> map(
        fn: (r) => {
            result = math.lgamma(x: r._value)

            return {r with lgamma: result.lgamma, sign: result.sign}
