ASIN

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2017-09-15

NAME

asin, asinf, asinl - arc sine function

SYNOPSIS

```#include <math.h>

double asin(double x);
float asinf(float x);
long double asinl(long double x);
```

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

asinf(), asinl():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
|| /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
|| /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate the principal value of the arc sine of x; that is the value whose sine is x.

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the principal value of the arc sine of x in radians; the return value is in the range [-pi/2, pi/2].

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If x is outside the range [-1, 1], a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

ERRORS

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

The following errors can occur:

Domain error: x is outside the range [-1, 1]
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
