csc

Cosecant of input angle in radians

Syntax

Y = csc(X)

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, csc(X) returns real values in the interval [-∞, -1] and [1, ∞].

  • For complex values of X, csc(X) returns complex values.

Examples

collapse all

Plot the cosecant function over the domain -π<x<0 and 0<x<π 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 = 1×3 complex

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

Cosecant Function

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

csc(α)=1sin(α)=hypotenuseopposite side=ha.

The cosecant of a complex argument, α, is

csc(α)=2ieiαeiα.

Tips

  • In floating-point arithmetic, csc is a bounded function. That is, csc does not return values of Inf or -Inf at points of divergence that are multiples of pi, but a large magnitude number instead. This stems from the inaccuracy of the floating-point representation of π.
