# cot

## Syntax

• Y = cot(X)
example

## Description

example

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

## Examples

collapse all

Plot the cotangent function over the domain and .

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

Calculate the cotangent of the complex angles in vector x.

x = [-i pi+i*pi/2 -1+i*4]; y = cot(x) 
y = 0.0000 + 1.3130i -0.0000 - 1.0903i -0.0006 - 0.9997i 

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input angle in radians, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Cotangent of input angle, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix or multidimensional array.
