NAME

casin, casinf, casinl − complex arc sine

SYNOPSIS

#include <complex.h>

double complex casin(double complex z);
float complex casinf(float complex
z);
long double complex casinl(long double complex
z);

Link with −lm.

DESCRIPTION

The casin() function calculates the complex arc sine of z. If y = casin(z), then z = csin(y). The real part of y is chosen in the interval [−pi/2,pi/2].

One has:

casin(z) = −i clog(iz + csqrt(1 − z * z))

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
