Math node

The Absolute Value node returns the absolute value of its input, vital for ensuring positive-only values in calculations. This node is key in scenarios where direction or sign is not relevant.

Importance: Essential in mathematical models where negative values are not applicable or desirable, such as in distance calculations or statistical analyses.

Use Cases: Employed in animations to ensure consistent motion directions, in statistical data processing for deviation measurements, and in engineering for magnitude calculations without directional considerations.
