NAME csqrt, csqrtf, csqrtl - complex square root

SYNOPSIS #include <complex.h>

double complex csqrt(double complex z); float complex csqrtf(float complex z); long double complex csqrtl(long double complex z);

Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION Calculate the square root of a given complex number, with nonnegative real part, and with a branch cut along the negative real axis. (That means that csqrt(-1+eps*I) will be close to I while csqrt(-1-eps*I) will be close to -I, if eps is a small positive real number.)
