Math::Symbolic::AuxFunctions - Auxiliary functions for Math::Symbolic hierarchy
use Math::Symbolic::AuxFunctions; Math::Symbolic::AuxFunctions::acos($x); # etc
This module contains implementations of some auxiliary functions that are used within the Math::Symbolic hierarchy of modules. In particular, this module holds all trigonometric functions used for numeric evaluation of trees by Math::Symbolic::Operator.
None. On purpose. If I wished this module would pollute others' namespaces, I'd have put the functions right where they're used.
Computes the tangent sin(x) / cos(x).
Computes the cotangent cos(x) / sin(x).
Computes the arc sine asin(z) = -i log(iz + sqrt(1-z*z)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
Computes the arc cosine acos(z) = -i log(z + sqrt(z*z-1)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
Computes the arc tangent atan(z) = i/2 log((i+z) / (i-z)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
Computes the arc cotangent ( atan( 1 / x ) ).
Computes the arc hyperbolic sine asinh(z) = log(z + sqrt(z*z+1))
Computes the arc hyperbolic cosine acosh(z) = log(z + sqrt(z*z-1)).
Calculates the binomial coefficient n over k of its first two arguments (n, k).

The Bell numbers are defined as follows:
B_0 = 1 B_n+1 = sum_k=0_to_n( B_k * binomial_coeff(n, k) )
This function uses memoization.
