CATAN(3) complex math routines CATAN(3)

NAME catan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangents

SYNOPSIS #include <complex.h>

double complex catan(double complex z); float complex catanf(float complex z); long double complex catanl(long double complex z);

Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION The catan() function calculates the complex atan(). If y = catan(z), then z = ctan(y). The real part of y is chosen in the interval [-pi/2,pi/2].

One has catan(z) = 1/2i clog((1+iz)/(1-iz)).
