C++ Mathematical Functions

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 25 Nov, 2021

C++ being superset of C, supports large number of useful mathematical functions. These functions are available in standard C++ and C to support various mathematical calculations. Instead of focusing on implementation, these functions can be directly used to simplify code and programs. C++ provides large set of mathematical functions which are stated below –
In order to use these functions you need to include header file- <math.h> or <cmath>

1. double sin(double) : This function takes angle (in degree) as an argument and return its sine value that could be verified using sine curve.
2. double cos(double) : This function takes angle (in degree) as an argument and return its cosine value that could be verified using cosine curve.
3. double tan(double) : This function takes angle (in degree) as an argument and return its tangent value. This could also be verified using Trigonometry as Tan(x) = Sin(x)/Cos(x).
4. double sqrt(double) : This function takes number as an argument and return its square root value. Number can not be negative value.
5. int abs(int) : This function takes integer number as an argument and return its absolute value. It means, the output will always be positive regardless of sign of input.
6. double pow(double, double) : This function takes one argument as base and other as exponent.
7. double hypot(double, double) : This function requires two sides of the right angled triangle to give output as its hypotenuse.
8. double floor(double) : This functions returns the integer value lesser or equal to argument passed in the function.
9. double fabs(double) : This function returns the absolute value of any number.
10. double acos(double) : This function returns the arc cosine of argument. The argument to acos() must be in the range -1 to 1 ; otherwise, a domain error occurs.
11. double asin(double) : This function returns the arc sine of argument. The argument to asin() must be in the range -1 to 1 ; otherwise, a domain error occurs.
12. double atan(double) : This function returns the arc tangent of arg.
13. double atan2(double, double) : This function returns the arc tangent of (double a)/(double b).
14. double ceil(double) : This function returns the smallest integer as double not less than the argument provided.
15. double cosh(double) : This function returns the hyperbolic cosine of argument provided. The value of argument provided must be in radians.
16. double tanh(double) : This function returns the hyperbolic tangent of argument provided. The value of argument provided must be in radians.
17. double log(double) : This function takes a number and returns the natural log of that number.
