T transform_reduce(InputIt first, InputIt last,

                   UnaryOp unary_op, T init, BinaryOp binary_op);
(1) (since C++17)
template<class ExecutionPolicy,

         class InputIt, class UnaryOp, class T, class BinaryOp>
T transform_reduce(ExecutionPolicy&& policy,
                   InputIt first, InputIt last,

                   UnaryOp unary_op, T init, BinaryOp binary_op);
(2) (since C++17)
1) Applies unary_op to each element in the range [first; last) and reduces the results (possibly permuted and aggregated in unspecified manner) along with the initial value init over binary_op.
2) Same as (1), but executed according to policy. This overload does not participate in overload resolution unless std::is_execution_policy_v<std::decay_t<ExecutionPolicy>> is true

The behavior is non-deterministic if binary_op is not associative or not commutative.

The behavior is undefined if unary_op or binary_op modifies any element or invalidates any iterator in [first; last).


[edit] Parameters

first, last - the range of elements to apply the algorithm to
init - the initial value of the generalized sum
policy - the execution policy to use. See execution policy for details.
unary_op - unary FunctionObject that will be applied to each element of the input range. The return type must be acceptable as input to binary_op
binary_op - binary FunctionObject that will be applied in unspecified order to the results of unary_op, the results of other binary_op and init.
Type requirements
InputIt must meet the requirements of InputIterator.

[edit] Return value

Generalized sum of init and unary_op(*first), unary_op(*(first+1)), ... unary_op(*(last-1)) over binary_op,

where generalized sum GSUM(op, a
, ..., a
is defined as follows:

  • if N=1, a
  • if N > 1, op(GSUM(op, b
    , ..., b
    ), GSUM(op, b
    , ..., b
  • b
    , ..., b
    may be any permutation of a1, ..., aN and
  • 1 < K+1 = M ≤ N

in other words, the results of unary_op may be grouped and arranged in arbitrary order.

[edit] Complexity

O(last - first) applications each of unary_op and binary_op.

[edit] Exceptions

The overloads with a template parameter named ExecutionPolicy report errors as follows:

  • If execution of a function invoked as part of the algorithm throws an exception, std::terminate is called.
  • If the algorithm fails to allocate memory, std::bad_alloc is thrown.

[edit] Notes

unary_op is not applied to init

If the range is empty, init is returned, unmodified

[edit] Example

transform_reduce can be used to parallelize std::inner_product:

#include <vector>
#include <iterator>
#include <functional>
#include <iostream>
#include <numeric>
#include <execution_policy>
#include <boost/iterator/zip_iterator.hpp>
#include <boost/tuple.hpp>
int main()
    std::vector<double> xvalues(10007, 1.0), yvalues(10007, 1.0);
    double result = std::transform_reduce(
            boost::make_tuple(std::begin(xvalues), std::begin(yvalues))),
            boost::make_tuple(std::end(xvalues), std::end(yvalues))),
        [](auto r) { return boost::get<0>(r) * boost::get<1>(r); }
    std::cout << result << '\n';
