csc

Cosecant of input angle in radians

Syntax

• Y = csc(X)
example

Description

example

Y = csc(X) returns the cosecant of the elements of X. The csc function operates element-wise on arrays. The function accepts both real and complex inputs. For real values of X in the interval [-Inf, Inf], csc returns real values in the interval [-Inf ,-1] and [1,Inf]. For complex values of X, csc returns complex values. All angles are in radians.

Examples

Plot the cosecant function over the domain and as shown.

x1 = -pi+0.01:0.01:-0.01; x2 = 0.01:0.01:pi-0.01; plot(x1,csc(x1),x2,csc(x2)), grid on 

Calculate the cosecant of the complex angles in vector x.

x = [-i pi+i*pi/2 -1+i*4]; y = csc(x) 
y = 0.0000 + 0.8509i 0.0000 + 0.4345i -0.0308 - 0.0198i 

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input angle in radians, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

collapse all

Cosecant of input angle, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix or multidimensional array.

Cosecant Function

The cosecant of an angle, α, defined with reference to a right angled triangle is

The cosecant of a complex angle, α, is

$\text{csc}\left(\alpha \right)=\frac{2i}{{e}^{i\alpha }-{e}^{-i\alpha }}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}.$

Tall Array Support

This function fully supports tall arrays. For more information, see Tall Arrays.
