Inverse cosecant in radians


Y = acsc(X)



Y = acsc(X) returns the Inverse Cosecant (csc-1) of the elements of X in radians. The function accepts both real and complex inputs.

  • For real values of X in the intervals [-∞, -1] and [1, ∞], acsc(X) returns real values in the interval [-π/2, π/2].

  • For real values of X in the interval (-1, 1) and for complex values of X, acsc(X) returns complex values.

Find the inverse cosecant of a value.

ans = 0.3398

Find the inverse cosecant of the elements of vector x. The acsc function acts on x element-wise.

x = [0.5i 1+3i -2.2+i];
Y = acsc(x)
Y = 1×3 complex
