Trigonometric and transcendental functions for complex numbers.

CMath is a library that provides trigonometric and transcendental functions for complex numbers. The functions in this module accept integers, floating-point numbers or complex numbers as arguments.

Note that the selection of functions is similar, but not identical, to that in module math. The reason for having two modules is that some users aren't interested in complex numbers, and perhaps don't even know what they are. They would rather have Math.sqrt(-1) raise an exception than return a complex number.

For more information you can see Complex class.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'cmath'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install cmath


To start using this library, simply require cmath library:

require "cmath"


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to
