`COS`

— Cosine function*Description*:`COS(X)`

computes the cosine of`X`.*Standard*:- Fortran 77 and later, has overloads that are GNU extensions
*Class*:- Elemental function
*Syntax*:`RESULT = COS(X)`

*Arguments*:-
`X`The type shall be `REAL`

or`COMPLEX`

. *Return value*:- The return value is of the same type and kind as
`X`. The real part of the result is in radians. If`X`is of the type`REAL`

, the return value lies in the range -1 \leq \cos (x) \leq 1. *Example*:-
program test_cos real :: x = 0.0 x = cos(x) end program test_cos

*Specific names*:-
Name Argument Return type Standard `COS(X)`
