math.asin()

Computes the principal value of the arc sine of the argument x.

Parameters

x - Floating point value. The value of x should be in the range -1 to 1 inclusive.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, this function returns the arc sine of x, in the range -math.PI_2 to math.PI_2 radians inclusive.

If x is math.NAN, a NaN will be returned.
If x is ±0, x will be returned.
If x is math.POS_INFINITY or math.NEG_INFINITY, a domain error occurs and a NaN will be returned.
If x is subnormal, a range error occurs and x will be returned.
For finite values of x not in the range -1 to 1 inclusive, a domain error occurs and a NaN will be returned.
