$cos (aggregation)

On this page

  • Definition
  • Behavior
  • Example

New in version 4.2.

Returns the cosine of a value that is measured in radians.

$cos has the following syntax:

{ $cos: <expression> }

$cos takes any valid expression that resolves to a number. If the expression returns a value in degrees, use the $degreesToRadians operator to convert the result to radians.

By default $cos returns values as a double. $cos can also return values as a 128-bit decimal as long as the <expression> resolves to a 128-bit decimal value.

For more information on expressions, see Expressions.

If the argument resolves to a value of null or refers to a field that is missing, $cos returns null. If the argument resolves to NaN, $cos returns NaN. If the argument resolves to negative or positive infinity, $cos throws an error.

{ $cos: NaN }
{ $cos: null }

{ $cos : Infinity}


{ $cos : -Infinity }

Throws an error message resembling the following formatted output:

"errmsg" :
"Failed to optimize pipeline :: caused by :: cannot
apply $cos to -inf, value must in (-inf,inf)"
