SYNOPSIS


.In complex.h double complex csqrt double complex z float complex csqrtf float complex z long double complex csqrtl long double complex z

DESCRIPTION

The csqrt, csqrtf, and csqrtl functions compute the square root of z in the complex plane, with a branch cut along the negative real axis. In other words, csqrt, csqrtf, and csqrtl always return the square root whose real part is non-negative.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the requested square root. The square root of 0 is +0 ± 0, where the imaginary parts of the input and respective result have the same sign. For infinities and NaNs, the following rules apply, with the earlier rules having precedence: Input      Result      k + oo*I        oo + oo*I       (for all k) -oo + NaN*I     NaN ± oo*I       oo + NaN*I      oo + NaN*I       k + NaN*I       NaN + NaN*I      NaN + k*I       NaN + NaN*I      -oo + k*I       +0 + oo*I        oo + k*I        oo + 0*I        

For numbers with negative imaginary parts, the above special cases apply given the identity:

    csqrt(conj(z) = conj(sqrt(z))

Note that the sign of NaN is indeterminate. Also, if the real or imaginary part of the input is finite and an NaN is generated, an invalid exception will be thrown.

STANDARDS

The csqrt, csqrtf, and csqrtl functions conform to -isoC-99.

BUGS

For csqrt and csqrtl, inexact results are not always correctly rounded.
