CATAN(3) Linux Programmers Manual CATAN(3)
NAME
catan, catanf, catanl  complex arc tangents
SYNOPSIS
#include
double complex catan(double complex z);
float complex catanf(float complex z);
long double complex catanl(long double complex z);
Link with lm.
DESCRIPTION
The catan() function calculates the complex arc tangent of z. If
y = catan(z), then z = ctan(y). The real part of y is chosen in the
interval [pi/2,pi/2].
One has:
catan(z) = 1 / 2i clog((1 + iz) / (1  iz))
CONFORMING TO
C99.
