atan

Compute the arctangent of a number.

Usage

var atan = require( '@stdlib/math/base/special/atan' );

atan( x )

Computes the arctangent of a number.

var v = atan( 0.0 );
// returns ~0.0

v = atan( -Math.PI/4.0 );
// returns ~-1.0

v = atan( Math.PI/4.0 );
// returns ~1.0

v = atan( NaN );
// returns NaN

Examples

var linspace = require( '@stdlib/math/utils/linspace' );
var atan = require( '@stdlib/math/base/special/atan' );

var x = linspace( -1000.0, 1000.0, 100 );
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
    console.log( atan( x[ i ] ) );
}
