Inverse sine, result in radians
Y = asin(X)
returns the inverse sine (arcsine) for each element of
X. For real elements of
X in the domain ,
asin(X) is in the range . For real elements of
x outside the range ,
asin(X) is complex.
asin function operates element-wise on arrays. The function's domains and ranges include complex values. All angles are in radians.
Graph the inverse sine function over the domain .
The inverse sine can be defined as
asin uses FDLIBM, which was developed at SunSoft, a Sun Microsystems, Inc. business, by Kwok C. Ng, and others. For information about FDLIBM, see http://www.netlib.org.
