FilledSmallSquare ArcCos[z] gives the arc cosine of the complex number z.

FilledSmallSquare Mathematical function (see Section A.3.10).

FilledSmallSquare All results are given in radians.

FilledSmallSquare For real z between and , the results are always in the range to .

FilledSmallSquare ArcCos[z] has branch cut discontinuities in the complex z plane running from to and to .
