# Arctangent function

The arctan function is the inverse function of the tangent function, it calculates the arc tangent of a number online.

## Calculation of the arctangent

To calculate the arctangent of a number, just enter the number and apply the arctan function.

For example, to calculate the arctangent of the following number 10, type arctan(10), or directly 10 if the arctan button already appears, the result 1.4711276743 is returned.

## Derivative of arctangent

The derivative of the arctangent is equal to 1/(1+(x)^2).

## Antiderivative of arctangent

The antiderivative of the arctangent is equal to x*arctan(x)-1/2*ln(1+(x)^2).

## Limits of arctangent

The limits of the arctangent exist at -oo (minus infinity) and +oo (plus infinity):
• The arctangent function has a limit in -oo which is pi/2.
• lim_(x->-oo)arctan(x)=pi/2
• The arctangent function has a limit in +oo which is -pi/2.
• lim_(x->+oo)arctan(x)=-pi/2
