• ### Method Detail

• #### haversin

```public static double haversin(double lat1,
double lon1,
double lat2,
double lon2)```
Returns the distance in kilometers between two points specified in decimal degrees (latitude/longitude).
Parameters:
`lat1` - Latitude of the first point.
`lon1` - Longitude of the first point.
`lat2` - Latitude of the second point.
`lon2` - Longitude of the second point.
Returns:
distance in kilometers.
• #### cos

`public static double cos(double a)`
Returns the trigonometric cosine of an angle.

Error is around 1E-15.

Special cases:

• If the argument is `NaN` or an infinity, then the result is `NaN`.
Parameters:
`a` - an angle, in radians.
Returns:
the cosine of the argument.
`Math.cos(double)`
• #### asin

`public static double asin(double a)`
Returns the arc sine of a value.

The returned angle is in the range -pi/2 through pi/2. Error is around 1E-7.

Special cases:

• If the argument is `NaN` or its absolute value is greater than 1, then the result is `NaN`.
Parameters:
`a` - the value whose arc sine is to be returned.
Returns:
arc sine of the argument
