Complex.Asin(Complex) Method

Definition

Returns the angle that is the arc sine of the specified complex number.

public:
 static System::Numerics::Complex Asin(System::Numerics::Complex value);
public static System.Numerics.Complex Asin (System.Numerics.Complex value);
static member Asin : System.Numerics.Complex -> System.Numerics.Complex
Public Shared Function Asin (value As Complex) As Complex

Parameters

value
Complex

A complex number.

Returns

Complex

The angle which is the arc sine of value.

Examples

The following example illustrates the Asin method. It shows that passing the value returned by the Asin method to the Sin method returns the original Complex value.

using System;
using System.Numerics;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Complex[] values = { new Complex(2.3, 1.4),
                           new Complex(-2.3, 1.4),
                           new Complex(-2.3, -1.4),
                           new Complex(2.3, -1.4) };
      foreach (Complex value in values)
         Console.WriteLine("Sin(Asin({0})) = {1}",
                            value, Complex.Sin(Complex.Asin(value)));
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Sin(Asin((2.3, 1.4))) = (2.3, 1.4)
//       Sin(Asin((-2.3, 1.4))) = (-2.3, 1.4)
//       Sin(Asin((-2.3, -1.4))) = (-2.3, -1.4)
//       Sin(Asin((2.3, -1.4))) = (2.3, -1.4)
Imports System.Numerics

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim values() As Complex = { New Complex(2.3, 1.4),
                                  New Complex(-2.3, 1.4), 
                                  New Complex(-2.3, -1.4),
                                  New Complex(2.3, -1.4) }
      For Each value As Complex In values
         Console.WriteLine("Sin(Asin({0})) = {1}", 
                            value, Complex.Sin(Complex.Asin(value)))
      Next                      
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       Sin(Asin((2.3, 1.4))) = (2.3, 1.4)
'       Sin(Asin((-2.3, 1.4))) = (-2.3, 1.4)
'       Sin(Asin((-2.3, -1.4))) = (-2.3, -1.4)
'       Sin(Asin((2.3, -1.4))) = (2.3, -1.4)

Remarks

The Asin method for complex numbers corresponds to the Math.Asin method for real numbers.

The Asin method uses the following formula:

-ImaginaryOne * Log(ImaginaryOne * value + Sqrt(One - value * value))
