Jose, It would help if you specified the nature of the error messages you received. The following works fine for me. Plot[ArcSin[x], {x, -1, 1}]; But the following produces Plot::plnr error messages because ArcSin[x] is not a real number over parts of the plotting domain. I am guessing that that is what your problem is. Plot[ArcSin[x], {x, -2, 2}]; Plot::plnr: ArcSin[x] is not a machine-size real number at x = -2..
