CATAN(3)                   Linux Programmer's Manual                  CATAN(3)



NAME
       catan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangents

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;complex.h>&gt;

       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  arc tangent of z.  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))

CONFORMING TO
       C99.

SEE ALSO
       ccos(3), clog(3), complex(7)
