arc tangent

[¦ärk ′tan·jənt]
(mathematics)
Also known as antitangent; inverse tangent.
For a number x, any angle whose tangent equals x.
For a number x, the angle between -π/2 radians and π/2 radians whose tangent equals x ; it is the value at x of the inverse of the restriction of the tangent function to the interval between -π/2 and π/2.

The method of Hurwitz-Radon Matrices (MHR) enables interpolation of two-dimensional curves using different coefficients [gamma]: polynomial, sinusoidal, cosinusoidal, tangent, cotangent, logarithmic, exponential, arcsin, arccos, arctan, arcctg or power function [16], also inverse functions.
