NAME

       math - Mathematical functions.

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides an interface to a number of mathematical functions.

   Note:
       Not  all  functions  are  provided  on  all platforms. In particular, the erf/1 and erfc/1
       functions are not provided on Windows.

EXPORTS

       acos(X) -> float()

       acosh(X) -> float()

       asin(X) -> float()

       asinh(X) -> float()

       atan(X) -> float()

       atan2(Y, X) -> float()

       atanh(X) -> float()

       ceil(X) -> float()

       cos(X) -> float()

       cosh(X) -> float()

       exp(X) -> float()

       floor(X) -> float()

       fmod(X, Y) -> float()

       log(X) -> float()

       log10(X) -> float()

       log2(X) -> float()

       pow(X, Y) -> float()

       sin(X) -> float()

       sinh(X) -> float()

       sqrt(X) -> float()

       tan(X) -> float()

       tanh(X) -> float()

              Types:

                 Y = X = number()

              A collection of mathematical functions that return floats. Arguments are numbers.

       erf(X) -> float()

              Types:

                 X = number()

              Returns the error function of X, where:

              erf(X) = 2/sqrt(pi)*integral from 0 to X of exp(-t*t) dt.

       erfc(X) -> float()

              Types:

                 X = number()

              erfc(X) returns 1.0 - erf(X), computed by methods that avoid cancellation for large
              X.

       pi() -> float()

              A useful number.

LIMITATIONS

       As these are the C library, the same limitations apply.
