Amplitude of a Function

Usage

Arg[z] gives the argument of the complex number z.

Basic examples

The result is given in radians:
In[1]:=Arg[-1]
Out[1]=π
In[2]:=Arg[1 + I]
Out[2]=π/4
Plot over a subset of the reals:
In[1]:=Plot[Arg[x], {x, -3, 3}]
Out[1]=
Plot over a subset of the complexes:
In[1]:=ComplexPlot3D[Arg[z], {z, -2 - 2I, 2 + 2I}, PlotLegends->Automatic]
Out[1]=
