Returns the arc-tangent, in radians, of a number.
ATAN( numeric-expression )
The tangent of the angle.
The ATAN and TAN functions are inverse operations.
This function converts its argument to DOUBLE, and performs the computation in double-precision floating-point arithmetic.
The following statement returns the arc-tangent value for 0.52:
SELECT ATAN( 0.52 );
