# cscd

Cosecant of argument in degrees

## Description

example

Y = cscd(X) returns the cosecant of the elements of X, which are expressed in degrees.

## Examples

expand all

### Cosecant of 180 degrees compared to cosecant of π radians

cscd(180) is infinite, whereas csc(pi) is large but finite.

```cscd(180)
```
```ans =

Inf
```
```csc(pi)
```
```ans =

8.1656e+15```

### Cosecant of vector of complex angles, specified in degrees

```z = [35+i 15+2i 10+3i];
y = cscd(z)```
```y =

1.7421 - 0.0434i   3.7970 - 0.4944i   5.2857 - 1.5681i```

## Input Arguments

expand all

### X — Angle in degreesscalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Angle in degrees, specified as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array. The cscd operation is element-wise when X is nonscalar.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

## Output Arguments

expand all

### Y — Cosecant of anglescalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Cosecant of angle, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array of the same size as X.
