# jax.numpy.tan¶

jax.numpy.tan(x)

Compute tangent element-wise.

LAX-backend implementation of tan(). Original docstring below.

tan(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=’same_kind’, order=’K’, dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj])

Equivalent to np.sin(x)/np.cos(x) element-wise.

Parameters

x (array_like) – Input array.

Returns

y – The corresponding tangent values. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.

Return type

ndarray

Notes

If out is provided, the function writes the result into it, and returns a reference to out. (See Examples)

Examples

>>> from math import pi
>>> np.tan(np.array([-pi,pi/2,pi]))
array([  1.22460635e-16,   1.63317787e+16,  -1.22460635e-16])

>>> # Example of providing the optional output parameter illustrating

>>> out1 = np.array(, dtype='d')
>>> out2 = np.cos([0.1], out1)
>>> out2 is out1
True
>>>
>>> # Example of ValueError due to provision of shape mis-matched out
>>> np.cos(np.zeros((3,3)),np.zeros((2,2)))
