# numpy.emath.arcsin#

emath.arcsin(x)[source]#

Compute the inverse sine of x.

Return the “principal value” (for a description of this, see numpy.arcsin) of the inverse sine of x. For real x such that abs(x) <= 1, this is a real number in the closed interval $$[-\pi/2, \pi/2]$$. Otherwise, the complex principle value is returned.

Parameters:
xarray_like or scalar

The value(s) whose arcsin is (are) required.

Returns:
outndarray or scalar

The inverse sine(s) of the x value(s). If x was a scalar, so is out, otherwise an array object is returned.

Notes

For an arcsin() that returns NAN when real x is not in the interval [-1,1], use numpy.arcsin.

Examples

>>> np.set_printoptions(precision=4)

>>> np.emath.arcsin(0)
0.0

>>> np.emath.arcsin([0,1])
array([0.    , 1.5708])
