cacos(3) Library Functions Manual cacos(3)

NAME

cacos, cacosf, cacosl - complex arc cosine

LIBRARY

Math library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <complex.h>
double complex cacos(double complex z);
float complex cacosf(float complex z);
long double complex cacosl(long double complex z);

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate the complex arc cosine of z. If y = cacos(z), then z = ccos(y). The real part of y is chosen in the interval [0,pi].

One has:


cacos(z) = -i * clog(z + i * csqrt(1 - z * z))

ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
