Math Module

The math XQuery Module defines functions to perform mathematical operations, such as pi
, asin
and acos
. Most functions are specified in the Functions and Operators Specification of the upcoming XQuery 3.0 Recommendation, and some additional ones have been added in this module.
Conventions[edit]
All functions in this module are assigned to the http://www.w3.org/2005/xpathfunctions/math
namespace, which is statically bound to the math
prefix.
