    The asin() function calculates the inverse sine in radians.

    arcsin and vector addition? you must be using some arse nasty vectors! (physics or some other science I bet)

    Ahh I wish all vectors were as simple as in linear algebra!

    vector v = (1, 2, 3)
    vecor w = (2, 3, 4)

    v + w = (3, 5, 7)
