SYNOPSIS

#include <complex.h>

double complex cacos(double complex z);
float complex cacosf(float complex z);
long double complex cacosl(long double complex z);

Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

The cacos() function calculates 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))

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

C99.

EXAMPLE

/* Link with "-lm" */

#include <complex.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { double complex z, c, f; double complex i = I;

if (argc != 3) { fprintf(stderr, "Usage: %s <real> <imag>\n", argv[0]); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); }

z = atof(argv[1]) + atof(argv[2]) * I;

c = cacos(z);

printf("cacos() = %6.3f %6.3f*i\n", creal(c), cimag(c));

f = -i * clog(z + i * csqrt(1 - z * z));

printf("formula = %6.3f %6.3f*i\n", creal(f), cimag(f));

exit(EXIT_SUCCESS); }
