DESCRIPTIONThis module contains implementations of some auxiliary functions that are used within the Math::Symbolic hierarchy of modules. In particular, this module holds all trigonometric functions used for numeric evaluation of trees by Math::Symbolic::Operator.
EXPORTNone. On purpose. If I wished this module would pollute others' namespaces, I'd have put the functions right where they're used.
tanComputes the tangent sin(x) / cos(x).
cotComputes the cotangent cos(x) / sin(x).
asinComputes the arc sine asin(z) = -i log(iz + sqrt(1-z*z)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
acosComputes the arc cosine acos(z) = -i log(z + sqrt(z*z-1)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
atanComputes the arc tangent atan(z) = i/2 log((i+z) / (i-z)). Above formula is for complex numbers.
acotComputes the arc cotangent ( atan( 1 / x ) ).
asinhComputes the arc hyperbolic sine asinh(z) = log(z + sqrt(z*z+1))
acoshComputes the arc hyperbolic cosine acosh(z) = log(z + sqrt(z*z-1)).
binomial_coeffCalculates the binomial coefficient n over k of its first two arguments (n, k).
Code taken from Orwant et al, ``Mastering Algorithms with Perl''
bell_numberThe Bell numbers are defined as follows:
B_0 = 1 B_n+1 = sum_k=0_to_n( B_k * binomial_coeff(n, k) )
This function uses memoization.
