The asin() function calculates the principal value of the arc sine of x; that is the value whose sine is x.
On success, these functions return the principal value of the arc sine of x in radians; the return value is in the range [−pi/2, pi/2].
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (−0), +0 (−0) is returned.
If x is outside the range [−1, 1], a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
errors can occur:
Domain error: x is outside the range [−1, 1]
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
