# acsc

computes the element-wise inverse cosecant of the argument.

### Calling Sequence

`y = acsc(x)`

### Arguments

x

Real or complex array.

y

Real or complex array.

### Description

Computes the element-wise inverse cotsecant of the argument. For real argument with absolute value greater than 1 the result is real.

The following equalities hold: ```acsc(z) = -acsc(-z) = asin(1/z) = %pi/2-asec(z) = %i*acsch(%i*z)```

### Examples

```x=linspace(1,20,200);
x=[-x(\$:-1:1) %nan x];
plot(x,acsc(x))```

• csc — Computes the element-wise cosecant of the argument.
• acscd — computes the element-wise inverse cosecant of the argument, results in degree.
