The trigonometric functions are very useful if you were in the computer graphics industry ,or you are writing a simulation program for weather forecasts, continued fractions, and so on. OpenCL provides the usual suspects when it comes to the trigonometry support with
atanh (hyperbolic arc tangent),
sinh (hyperbolic sine), and so on.
In this section, we will take a look at the popular trigonometric identity function:
sin2 + cos2 = 1
From the Pythagoras's theorem, we understood that a right-angled triangle with sides a,b,c and angle t at the vertex where a and c meet, cos(t) is by definition a/c, sin(t
) is by definition b/c, and so cos2(t) + sin2(t) = (a/c)2 + (b/c)2 when combined with ...
