# csc

Cosecant of input angle in radians

## Description

example

Y = csc(X) returns the cosecant of the elements of X. The csc function operates element-wise on arrays. The function accepts both real and complex inputs. For real values of X in the interval [-Inf, Inf], csc returns real values in the interval [-Inf ,-1] and [1,Inf]. For complex values of X, csc returns complex values. All angles are in radians.

### Plot Cosecant Function

Plot the cosecant function over the domain and as shown.

x1 = -pi+0.01:0.01:-0.01; x2 = 0.01:0.01:pi-0.01; plot(x1,csc(x1),x2,csc(x2)), grid on 

### Cosecant of Vector of Complex Angles

Calculate the cosecant of the complex angles in vector x.

x = [-i pi+i*pi/2 -1+i*4]; y = csc(x) 
y = 0.0000 + 0.8509i 0.0000 + 0.4345i -0.0308 - 0.0198i
