numpy.logical_or(x1, x2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'logical_or'>

Compute the truth value of x1 OR x2 element-wise.


x1, x2 : array_like

Logical OR is applied to the elements of x1 and x2. They have to be of the same shape.

out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional

A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.

where : array_like, optional

Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone.


For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs.


y : ndarray or bool

Boolean result with the same shape as x1 and x2 of the logical OR operation on elements of x1 and x2.


>>> np.logical_or(True, False)
>>> np.logical_or([True, False], [False, False])
array([ True, False])
>>> x = np.arange(5)
>>> np.logical_or(x < 1, x > 3)
array([ True, False, False, False,  True])
