math.mod() function

math.mod() returns a floating-point remainder of x/y.

The magnitude of the result is less than y and its sign agrees with that of x.

Note: math.mod() performs the same operation as the modulo operator (%). For example: 4.56 % 1.23

math.mod(x: 4.56, y: 1.23)// 0.8699999999999997

Use math.mod in map

import "math"

    |> map(fn: (r) => ({_time: r._time, _value: math.mod(x: r.t1, y: r.t2)}))
