## 3.110. __nv_fast_tanf

Prototype:

float @__nv_fast_tanf(float %x)



Description:

Calculate the fast approximate tangent of the input argument x, measured in radians.

Returns:

Returns the approximate tangent of x.

Note:

For accuracy information for this function see the CUDA C++ Programming Guide, Appendix E.2, Table 9.

The result is computed as the fast divide of __nv_sinf() by __nv_cosf(). Denormal input and output are flushed to sign-preserving 0.0 at each step of the computation.
