atan2 #

pyspark.sql.functions.atan2(col1, col2) #

version: since 1.4

The theta component of the point (r, theta) in polar coordinates that corresponds to the point (x, y) in Cartesian coordinates, as if computed by java.lang.Math.atan2()


Runnable Code:

from pyspark.sql import functions as F
# Set up dataframe
data = [{"num1": 1.0,"num2": 1.0},{"num1": .5,"num2": 1.0},{"num1": 0.0,"num2": 1.0}]
df = spark.createDataFrame(data)
# Use function
df = (df
     .withColumn("atan2", F.atan2("num1","num2"))
num1 num2 atan2
1.0 1.0 0.7853981633974483
0.5 1.0 0.4636476090008061
0.0 1.0 0.0


This is just a basic math function. Nothing special about it. Never used it.

returns: \_invoke_binary_math_function("atan2", col1, col2)
