NAME
    math

DESCRIPTION
    This module is always available.  It provides access to the
    mathematical functions defined by the C standard.

FUNCTIONS
    acos(...)
        acos(x)
        
        Return the arc cosine (measured in radians) of x.
    
    acosh(...)
        acosh(x)
        
        Return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x.
    
    asin(...)
        asin(x)
        
        Return the arc sine (measured in radians) of x.
    
    asinh(...)
        asinh(x)
        
        Return the inverse hyperbolic sine of x.
    
    atan(...)
        atan(x)
        
        Return the arc tangent (measured in radians) of x.
    
    atan2(...)
        atan2(y, x)
        
        Return the arc tangent (measured in radians) of y/x.
        Unlike atan(y/x), the signs of both x and y are considered.
    
    atanh(...)
        atanh(x)
        
        Return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x.
    
    ceil(...)
        ceil(x)
        
        Return the ceiling of x as an Integral.
        This is the smallest integer >= x.
    
    copysign(...)
        copysign(x, y)
        
        Return a float with the magnitude (absolute value) of x but the sign 
        of y. On platforms that support signed zeros, copysign(1.0, -0.0) 
        returns -1.0.
    
    cos(...)
        cos(x)
        
        Return the cosine of x (measured in radians).
    
    cosh(...)
        cosh(x)
        
        Return the hyperbolic cosine of x.
    
    degrees(...)
        degrees(x)
        
        Convert angle x from radians to degrees.
    
    erf(...)
        erf(x)

        Complementary error function at x.
    
    exp(...)
        exp(x)

    expm1(...)
        expm1(x)
        
        Return exp(x)-1.
        This function avoids the loss of precision involved in the direct evaluation of exp(x)-1 for small x.
    
    fabs(...)
        fabs(x)
        
        Return the absolute value of the float x.
    
    factorial(...)
        factorial(x) -> Integral
        
        Find x!. Raise a ValueError if x is negative or non-integral.
    
    floor(...)
        floor(x)
        
        Return the floor of x as an Integral.
        This is the largest integer <= x.
    
    fmod(...)
        fmod(x, y)
        
        Return fmod(x, y), according to platform C.  x % y may differ.
    
    frexp(...)
        frexp(x)
        
        Return the mantissa and exponent of x, as pair (m, e).
        m is a float and e is an int, such that x = m * 2.**e.
        If x is 0, m and e are both 0.  Else 0.5 <= abs(m) < 1.0.
    
    fsum(...)
        fsum(iterable)
        
        Return an accurate floating point sum of values in the iterable.
        Assumes IEEE-754 floating point arithmetic.
    
    gamma(...)
        gamma(x)
        
        Gamma function at x.
    
    gcd(...)
        gcd(x, y) -> int
        greatest common divisor of x and y
    
    hypot(...)
        hypot(x, y)
        
        Return the Euclidean distance, sqrt(x*x + y*y).

           rel_tol
               maximum difference for being considered "close", relative to the
               magnitude of the input values
            abs_tol
               maximum difference for being considered "close", regardless of the
               magnitude of the input values
        
        Return True if a is close in value to b, and False otherwise.
        
        For the values to be considered close, the difference between them
        must be smaller than at least one of the tolerances.
        
        -inf, inf and NaN behave similarly to the IEEE 754 Standard.  That
        is, NaN is not close to anything, even itself.  inf and -inf are
        only close to themselves.
    
    isfinite(...)
        isfinite(x) -> bool
        
        Return True if x is neither an infinity nor a NaN, and False otherwise.

    isnan(...)
        isnan(x) -> bool

        Natural logarithm of absolute value of Gamma function at x.
    
    log(...)
        log(x[, base])
        
        Return the logarithm of x to the given base.
        If the base not specified, returns the natural logarithm (base e) of x.
    
    log10(...)
        log10(x)
        
        Return the base 10 logarithm of x.
    
    log1p(...)
        log1p(x)

        The result is computed in a way which is accurate for x near zero.
    
    log2(...)
        log2(x)
        
        Return the base 2 logarithm of x.
    
    modf(...)
        modf(x)

        of x and are floats.

    sqrt(...)
        sqrt(x)
        
        Return the square root of x.

    trunc(...)
        trunc(x:Real) -> Integral
