secd

Secant of argument in degrees

Syntax

  • Y = secd(X)

Description

Y = secd(X) returns the secant of the elements of X, which are expressed in degrees.

Examples

expand all

Secant of 90 degrees compared to secant of π/2 radians

secd(90)
ans =

   Inf
sec(pi/2)
ans =

   1.6331e+16

secd(90) is infinite, whereas sec(pi/2) is large but finite.

Secant of vector of complex angles, specified in degrees

z = [35+i 15+2i 10+3i];
y = secd(z)
y =

   1.2204 + 0.0149i   1.0346 + 0.0097i   1.0140 + 0.0094i

Input Arguments

expand all

X — Angle in degreesscalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Angle in degrees, specified as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array. The secd operation is element-wise when X is nonscalar.

Example:

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

expand all

Y — Secant of anglescalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Secant of angle, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array of the same size as X.
