asin (<valarray>)

Operates on the elements of an input valarray, returning a valarray whose elements are equal to the arcsine of the elements of the input valarray.

template<class Type> 
   valarray<Type> asin( 
      const valarray<Type>& _Left 
   );

_Left

The input valarray whose elements are to be operated on by the member function.

A valarray whose elements are equal to the arcsine of the elements of the input valarray.

The units of the returned elements are in radians.

The return value is a principal value between +pi/2 and –pi/2 that is consistent with the sine value input.

The initial valarray is: -1 -0.75 -0.5 -0.25 0 0.25 0.5 0.75 1
The arcsine of the initial valarray is:
   -1.5708  radians, which is          -90  degrees
 -0.848062  radians, which is     -48.5904  degrees
 -0.523599  radians, which is          -30  degrees
