from brian2 import arctan)
Trigonometric inverse tangent, element-wise.
The inverse of tan, so that if
y = tan(x)then
x = arctan(y).
x : array_like
arctan()is applied to each element of
out : ndarray
Out has the same shape as
x. Its real part is in
+/-pi/2). It is a scalar if
xis a scalar.
- The “four quadrant” arctan of the angle formed by (
y) and the positive
- Argument of complex values.
arctan()is a multi-valued function: for each
xthere are infinitely many numbers
zsuch that tan(
x. The convention is to return the angle
zwhose real part lies in [-pi/2, pi/2].
For real-valued input data types,
arctan()always returns real output. For each value that cannot be expressed as a real number or infinity, it yields
nanand sets the
invalidfloating point error flag.
For complex-valued input,
arctan()is a complex analytic function that has [
1j, infj] and [
-1j, -infj] as branch cuts, and is continuous from the left on the former and from the right on the latter.

We expect the arctan of 0 to be 0, and of 1 to be pi/4:
>>> np.arctan([0, 1]) array([ 0. , 0.78539816])
>>> np.pi/4 0.78539816339744828
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> x = np.linspace(-10, 10) >>> plt.plot(x, np.arctan(x)) >>> plt.axis('tight') >>> plt.show()
