NAME

acosh, acoshf, acoshl - inverse hyperbolic cosine function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double acosh(double x);

float acoshf(float x);
long double acoshl(long double x);
Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

acosh(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99
acoshf(), acoshl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99  

DESCRIPTION

The acosh() function calculates the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x; that is the value whose hyperbolic cosine is x.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x.

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +1, +0 is returned.

If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

If x is less than 1, a domain error occurs, and the functions return a NaN.  

ERRORS

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

The following errors can occur:

Domain error: x is less than 1
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
 

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
