Unless otherwise noted, all of the functions described in this chapter
will work for real and complex scalar, vector, or matrix arguments. Functions
described as *mapping functions* apply the given operation individually to
each element when given a matrix argument. For example:

sin ([1, 2; 3, 4]) ⇒ 0.84147 0.90930 0.14112 -0.75680
