# ATAN

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2015-03-02

## NAME

atan, atanf, atanl - arc tangent function

## SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double atan(double x);

float atanf(float x);
long double atanl( long double x);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

atanf(), atanl():

_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99

## DESCRIPTION

The atan() function calculates the principal value of the arc tangent of x; that is the value whose tangent is x.

## RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the principal value of the arc tangent of x in radians; the return value is in the range [-pi/2, pi/2].

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +pi/2 (-pi/2) is returned.

## ERRORS

No errors occur.

## ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
 Interface Attribute Value atan(), atanf(), atanl() Thread safety MT-Safe

## CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
