Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

print(ee.Array([-5]).atan());  // [-1.3734]
print(ee.Array([0]).atan());  // [0]
print(ee.Array([5]).atan());  // [1.3734]

var start = -5;
var end = 5;
var points = ee.Array(ee.List.sequence(start, end, null, 50));
var values = points.atan();

// Plot atan() defined above.
