< cpp‎ | numeric‎ | valarray
Defined in header <valarray>
template< class T >
valarray<T> acos( const valarray<T>& va );

For each element in va computes arc cosine of the value of the element.


[edit] Parameters

va - value array to apply the operation to

[edit] Return value

Value array containing arc cosines of the values in va.

[edit] Notes

Unqualified function (acos) is used to perform the computation. If such function is not available, std::acos is used due to argument dependent lookup.

The function can be implemented with the return type different from std::valarray. In this case, the replacement type has the following properties:

[edit] Possible implementation

template<class T>
valarray<T> acos(const valarray<T>& va)
    valarray<T> other = va;
    for (T &i : other) {
        i = acos(i);
