In mathematics, the **inverse trigonometric functions** (occasionally also called **arcus functions**,[1][2][3][4][5] **antitrigonometric functions**[6] or **cyclometric functions**[7][8][9]) are the inverse functions of the trigonometric functions (with suitably restricted domains). Specifically, they are the inverses of the sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant functions,[10] and are used to obtain an angle from any of the angle's trigonometric ratios. Inverse trigonometric functions are widely used in engineering, navigation, physics, and geometry.
