Assert the condition x < y holds element-wise.

    x, y, data=None, summarize=None, message=None, name=None

Example of adding a dependency to an operation:

with tf.control_dependencies([tf.compat.v1.assert_less(x, y)]):
  output = tf.reduce_sum(x)

This condition holds if for every pair of (possibly broadcast) elements x[i], y[i], we have x[i] < y[i]. If both x and y are empty, this is trivially satisfied.


  • x: Numeric Tensor.
  • y: Numeric Tensor, same dtype as and broadcastable to x.
  • data: The tensors to print out if the condition is False. Defaults to error message and first few entries of x, y.
  • summarize: Print this many entries of each tensor.
  • message: A string to prefix to the default message.
  • name: A name for this operation (optional). Defaults to "assert_less".


Op that raises InvalidArgumentError if x < y is False.
