8.18 ASIN — Arcsine function

Description:
ASIN(X) computes the arcsine of its X (inverse of SIN(X)).
Standard:
Fortran 77 and later, for a complex argument Fortran 2008 or later
Class:
Elemental function
Syntax:
RESULT = ASIN(X)
Arguments:

X The type shall be either REAL and a magnitude that is less than or equal to one - or be COMPLEX.

Return value:
The return value is of the same type and kind as X. The real part of the result is in radians and lies in the range -\pi/2 \leq \Re \asin(x) \leq \pi/2.
Example:
          program test_asin
            real(8) :: x = 0.866_8
            x = asin(x)
          end program test_asin
     

Specific names:

Name Argument Return type Standard
ASIN(X) REAL(4) X REAL(4) Fortran 77 and later
DASIN(X) REAL(8) X REAL(8) Fortran 77 and later
