Description
The
v?Tand
function computes the tangent of vector elements multiplied by
π
/180. For an argument
x
, the function computes tan(
π
*
x
/180).

) function returns the first vector argument
x
with the sign changed to match that of the second argument
y
.
Application Notes
If arguments abs(
a
i
) ≤ 2
38
for single precision or abs(
a
i
)≤ 2
67
for double precision, they belong to the
fast computational path
: arguments for which VM provides the best possible performance. Avoid arguments with do not belong to the fast computational path in VM High Accuracy (HA) or Low Accuracy (LA) functions. For arguments which do not belong to the fast computational path you can use VM Enhanced Performance (EP) functions, which are fast on the entire function domain. However, these functions provide lower accuracy.
