Some of the mathematical functions are discussed in below set 1, set 2 and set 3
Mathematical Functions in Python | Set 1 (Numeric Functions)
Mathematical Functions in Python | Set 2 (Logarithmic and Power Functions)
Mathematical Functions in Python | Set 3 (Trigonometric and Angular Functions)
Special Functions and constants are discussed in this article.
1. gamma() :- This function is used to return the gamma function of the argument.
The gamma() of 4 is : 6.0
2. pi :- This is an inbuilt constant that outputs the value of pi(3.141592).
3. e :- This is an inbuilt constant that outputs the value of e(2.718281).
The value of const. pi is : 3.141592653589793 The value of const. e is : 2.718281828459045
4. inf :- This is a positive floating point infinity constant. -inf is used to denote the negative floating point infinity. This constant is defined in python 3.5 and above.
5. isinf() :- This function is used to check whether the value is an infinity or not.
6. nan :- This constant denotes “Not a number” in python. This constant is defined in python 3.5 and above.
7. isnan() :- This function returns true if the number is “nan” else returns false.
The number is nan The number is positive infinity
