**13. INVERSE TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS
**

Synopsis :

1. The function f : [−π/2, π/2] → [−1, 1] defined by f(x) = sinx is a bijection. The inverse of f from

[−1, 1] into [−π/2, π/2] is also a bijection. This function is called inverse sine function or arc sine

function. It is denoted by Sin−1 or Arc sin.

Now Sin−1x = θ ⇔ x = sinθ, ∀ x ∈ [−1, 1]

2. The domains and ranges of the inverse trigonometric functions are as follows.
