Hello,
I tried different arcsin functions on a complex number (z=0.52+0j) and obtained
the following results:
cmath.asin(z) gives (0.54685095069594414+0j) #okay
-1j*log(1j*z+sqrt(1-z**2)) gives (0.54685095069594414+0j) #okay, by definition
numarray.arcsin(z) gives (0.54685095069594414+0j) #still okay
but
numpy.arcsin(z) gives (0.54685095069594414+0.54685095069594414j) #bug??
Is it really a bug in numpy, or is there another explanation?
Thanks
