## Description

The atan function computes the principal value of the arc tangent of x, returning a value in the range . The arc tangent is also often denoted as .

The complex inverse tangent is defined by: Example:
##### Example - Arc tangent function of one variable
Workings
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
int main(void)
{
double result, x = 0.6325;
result = atan(x);
printf("The arc sin of %lf is %lf\n", x, result);
}
Solution

Output:

The arc sin of 0.632500 is 0.563974

## Special Values

atan ( ±0 ) returns ±0.

atan ( ±∞ ) returns ± .
