cproj, cprojf, cprojl - complex projection functions SYNOPSIS
#include <complex.h> double complex cproj(double complex z); float complex cprojf(float complex z); long double complex cprojl(long double complex z); DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute a projection of z onto the Riemann sphere: z projects to z, except that all complex infinities (even those with one infinite part and one NaN part) project to positive infinity on the real axis. If z has an infinite part, then cproj( z) shall be equivalent to: INFINITY + I * copysign(0.0, cimag(z)) RETURN VALUE
These functions shall return the value of the projection onto the Riemann sphere. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
Two topologies are commonly used in complex mathematics: the complex plane with its continuum of infinities, and the Riemann sphere with its single infinity. The complex plane is better suited for transcendental functions, the Riemann sphere for algebraic functions. The com- plex types with their multiplicity of infinities provide a useful (though imperfect) model for the complex plane. The cproj() function helps model the Riemann sphere by mapping all infinities to one, and should be used just before any operation, especially comparisons, that might give spurious results for any of the other infinities. Note that a complex value with one infinite part and one NaN part is regarded as an infinity, not a NaN, because if one part is infinite, the complex value is infinite independent of the value of the other part. For the same reason, cabs() returns an infinity if its argument has an infinite part and a NaN part. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
