numpy.arcsin¶

numpy.arcsin(x[, out])

Inverse sine elementwise.

Parameters: x : array_like y-coordinate on the unit circle. out : ndarray, optional Array of the same shape as x, to store results in. See doc.ufuncs (Section “Output arguments”) for more details. angle : ndarray The angle of the ray intersecting the unit circle at the given y-coordinate in radians [-pi, pi]. If x is a scalar then a scalar is returned, otherwise an array is returned.

Notes

arcsin is a multivalued function: for each x there are infinitely many numbers z such that sin(z) = x. The convention is to return the angle z whose real part lies in [-pi/2, pi/2].

For real-valued input data types, arcsin always returns real output. For each value that cannot be expressed as a real number or infinity, it yields nan and sets the invalid floating point error flag.

For complex-valued input, arcsin is a complex analytical function that has branch cuts [-inf, -1] and [1, inf] and is continuous from above on the former and from below on the latter.

The inverse sine is also known as asin or sin^-1.
