# Inverse of Involute function Calculator

## Calculates the inverse of the involute function using Newton method. | |||

- Bug report
- Is x0 really (3*inv(theta))^(1/3) for y < 1.2?

I made a script to calculate the inverse of the involute and it never converged by this formula. When I tried just inv(theta)^(1/3), it started to converge. - from Keisan
- Thank you for your advice.We've fixed it as below.

(3*inv(theta))^(-1/3)

-> (3*inv(theta))^(1/3)
