# ccosf, ccos, ccosl

Defined in header `<complex.h>`
`float complex       ccosf( float complex z );`
(1) (since C99)
`double complex      ccos( double complex z );`
(2) (since C99)
`long double complex ccosl( long double complex z );`
(3) (since C99)
Defined in header `<tgmath.h>`
`#define cos( z )`
(4) (since C99)
1-3) Computes the complex cosine of `z`.
4) Type-generic macro: If `z` has type `long double complex`, `ccosl` is called. if `z` has type `double complex`, `ccos` is called, if `z` has type `float complex`, `ccosf` is called. If `z` is real or integer, then the macro invokes the corresponding real function (`cosf`, `cos`, `cosl`). If `z` is imaginary, then the macro invokes the corresponding real version of the function `cosh`, implementing the formula cos(iy) = cosh(y), and the return type is real.

### Parameters

 z - complex argument

### Return value

If no errors occur, the complex cosine of `z` is returned.

Errors and special cases are handled as if the operation is implemented by `ccosh(I*z)`.

The cosine is an entire function on the complex plane, and has no branch cuts. Mathematical definition of the cosine is cos z =

 eiz+e-iz 2

### Example

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <complex.h>

int main(void)
{
double complex z = ccos(1);  // behaves like real cosine along the real line
printf("cos(1+0i) = %f%+fi ( cos(1)=%f)\n", creal(z), cimag(z), cos(1));

double complex z2 = ccos(I); // behaves like real cosh along the imaginary line
printf("cos(0+1i) = %f%+fi (cosh(1)=%f)\n", creal(z2), cimag(z2), cosh(1));
}```

Output:

```cos(1+0i) = 0.540302-0.000000i ( cos(1)=0.540302)
cos(0+1i) = 1.543081-0.000000i (cosh(1)=1.543081)```
