Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In a variety of computer languages, the two-argument function atan2 is a variation of the arctangent function. For any real number arguments x and y not both equal to zero, atan2 is the angle in radians between the positive x-axis of a plane and the point given by the coordinates on it. The angle is positive for counter-clockwise angles, and negative for clockwise angles. The atan2 function was first introduced in computer programming languages, but now it is also common in other fields of science and engineering. It dates back at least as far as the FORTRAN programming language and is currently found in C's math.h standard library, the Java Math library, .NET's System.Math the Python math module, and elsewhere. Many scripting languages, such as Perl, include the C-style atan2 function.
