# sin¶

Computes sine of vector elements.

Syntax

Buffer API:

void `sin`(queue &exec_queue, int64_t n, buffer<T, 1> &a, buffer<T, 1> &y, uint64_t mode = mode::not_defined, error_handler<T> errhandler = {})

USM API:

event `sin`(queue &exec_queue, int64_t n, T *a, T *y, vector_class<event> const &depends = {}, uint64_t mode = mode::not_defined, error_handler<T> errhandler = {})

Description

The sin(a)function computes sine of vector elements.

Note that arguments `abs(a[i]) ≤ 213` and `abs(a[i]) ≤ 216` for single and double precisions respectively are called fast computational path. These are trigonometric function arguments for which VM provides the best possible performance. Avoid arguments that do not belong to the fast computational path in the VM High Accuracy (HA) and Low Accuracy (LA) functions. Alternatively, you can use VM Enhanced Performance (EP) functions that are fast on the entire function domain. However, these functions provide less accuracy.

Specificationsfor special values of the complex functions are defined according to the following formula

`Sin(z) = -i*Sinh(i*z)`.

Input Parameters

Buffer API:

exec_queue

The queue where the routine should be executed.

n

Specifies the number of elements to be calculated.

a

The buffer `a` containing input vector of size `n`.

mode

Overrides the global VM mode setting for this function call. See set_mode function for possible values and their description. This is an optional parameter. The default value is `mode::not_defined`.

errhandler

Sets local error handling mode for this function call. See the create_error_handler function for arguments and their descriptions. This is an optional parameter. The local error handler is disabled by default.

USM API:

exec_queue

The queue where the routine should be executed.

n

Specifies the number of elements to be calculated.

a

Pointer `a` to the input vector of size `n`.

depends

Vector of dependent events (to wait for input data to be ready).

mode

Overrides the global VM mode setting for this function call. See the set_mode function for possible values and their description. This is an optional parameter. The default value is `mode::not_defined`.

errhandler

Sets local error handling mode for this function call. See the create_error_handler function for arguments and their descriptions. This is an optional parameter. The local error handler is disabled by default.

Output Parameters

Buffer API:

y

The buffer `y` containing the output vector of size `n`.

USM API:

y

Pointer `y` to the output vector of size `n`.

return value (event)

Function end event.
