Is the cotan(theta) function the same as tan^1(theta)?

\[\cot \theta = \frac{ 1 }{ \tan \theta }\]

So that's a yes? If I'm entering it into my calculator (there is no cot function), I enter\[\cot(\theta) = \tan^{1}(\theta)\]

you can't write it as
\[\tan ^{1} \theta \]

Isn't that the same thing...? Doesn't:
\[\frac{ 1 }{ \tan(\theta) } = \tan ^{1}(\theta)\]

nope. to find cot(theta), do this: 1/(tan(theta))

when we take tan function from one side of equality to other then we write tan^1

So you use tan^1 in something like... To solve for x if tan(x)=a, then x=tan^1(a)

Can you say\[\csc ^{4}(\theta) = \frac{ 1 }{ \sin ^{4}(\theta) }\]

yep. in calculator, that would be: 1/(sin(theta))^4

1 is a special case in trigonometric functions..
1 corresponds to inverse function..
thus for 1/sin, we use cosec and likewise..
