cprojf (3)

NAME

cproj, cprojf, cprojl - project into Riemann Sphere

SYNOPSIS

#include <complex.h>
double complex cproj(double complex z);
 
float complex cprojf(float complex z);
 
long double complex cprojl(long double complex z);
Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

These functions project a point in the plane onto the surface of a Riemann Sphere, the one-point compactification of the complex plane. Each finite point z projects to z itself. Every complex infinite value is projected to a single infinite value, namely to positive infinity on the real axis.

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES

In glibc 2.11 and earlier, the implementation does something different (a stereographic projection onto a Riemann Sphere).
