- n. the inverse function of the secant; the angle that has a secant equal to a given number
If we are operating on some variable x, the arccosecant of x is denoted cscÀ1 (x) or arccsc (x) The inverse of the secant function is the arcsecant function.
These are known as the hyperbolic arcsine, hyperbolic arccosine, hyperbolic arctangent, hyper - bolic arccosecant, hyperbolic arcsecant, and hyperbolic arccotangent.
The range of the arcsecant function is limited to values of y such that 0 y
