# Available Mapping Functions

Odysseus provides a wide range of functions and operators to be used for data transformation and filtering in a Map, Select, or Join operator.

## Mathematic Functions

### Cos

Returns the trigonometric cosine of an angle

### ACos

Returns the arc cosine of a value

### Cosh

Returns the hyperbolic cosine of a double value

### Sin

Returns the trigonometric sine of an angle

### ASin

Returns the arc sine of a value

### Sinh

Returns the hyperbolic sine of a double value

### Tan

Returns the trigonometric tangent of an angle

### ATan

Returns the arc tangent of a value

### ATan2

Returns the angle theta from the conversion of rectangular coordinates (x, y) to polar coordinates (r, theta)

### Tanh

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of a double value

### Abs

Returns the absolute value of a value

### Ceil

Returns the smallest value that is greater than or equal to the argument and is equal to a mathematical integer.

### Floor

Returns the largest value that is less than or equal to the argument and is equal to a mathematical integer.

### Round

Returns the closest number to the argument, with ties rounding up

### Log

Returns the natural logarithm (base e) of a double value

### Exp

Returns Euler's number e raised to the power of a double value

### PI

Returns the double value that is closer than any other to pi.

### E

Returns the double value that is closer than any other to e

Converts an angle measured in degrees to an equivalent angle measured in radians.

### ToDegree

Converts an angle measured in radians to an equivalent angle measured in degrees.

## String Functions

### SubString

Returns a new string that is a substring of the value with given begin and end index

## Date Functions

Returns the year

### Month

Returns the month

Returns the hour

### Minute

Returns the minute

### Second

Returns the second

## Datatype Functions

### DoubleToShort

Converts the given double value to a short value

### DoubleToByte

Converts the given double value to a byte value

### DoubleToFloat

Converts the given double value to a float value

### DoubleToLong

Converts the given double value to a long value

### ToShort

Converts the given value to a short value. This function converts any value to a short value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToShort function for double values.

### ToByte

Converts the given value to a byte value. This function converts any value to a byte value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToByte function for double values.

### ToFloat

Converts the given value to a float value. This function converts any value to a float value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToFloat function for double values.

### ToLong

Converts the given value to a long value. This function converts any value to a long value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToLong function for double values.

# Optional MEP functions

The following MEP functions are not part of the Odysseus Core and may be restricted.

## Spatial Grid Functions (Spatial Grid Feature)

### RotateGrid

The SpreadOccupancyGrid function takes 4 parameters: A cartesian grid, the timestamp of the grid, the current timestamp, and the velocity.

### MergeOccupancyGrid

The MergOccupancyGrid function takes 6 parameters: A cartesian grid, the polar coordinates, the origin, the transform angle, the polar radius, and the polar cellsize.

## Probabilistic Functions (Probabilistic Feature)

### MVN

Estimates the multivariate normal distribution probability with lower and upper integration limit.

Most function descriptions on this page are copied from the openjdk documentation.

your query statements. In Odysseus-Studio there is a view MEP Functions View, that lists all current available operators and functions.

Attentation: For most numeric operators the result is a floating value. This will be fixed in future versions.

## Basic Operators

Mathematical Operators; +,-,/,*, % (modulo), ^ (power)

Logical Operators: && (and), || (or), !(not), xor

Compare Operators: !=, = or ==, <=, >=

## Functions and operators in CQL

If you prefer CQL you can use these functions and operators in your Select clause for data transformation or in the Where clause for filtering:

Code Block
language sql Example
`SELECT tan(x) FROM stream WHERE sqrt(y)>3`

## Functions and operators in PQL

If you prefer PQL you can use these functions and operators in the MAP, JOIN, and SELECT operator. In addition, functions and operators can be used in other operators that are not part of the set of relational operators.

Code Block
language js Example
`output = MAP({expressions = ['tan(x)']}, SELECT({predicate = RelationalPredicate('sqrt(y)>3')}, stream))`

Some of the functions and operators are part of the Odysseus Core and some are available in additional features. On the following child pages you find all currently available functions and operators with their description and examples.
