NAMEatanh, atanhf, atanhl - inverse hyperbolic tangent function
#include <math.h> double atanh(double x);Link with -lm.
float atanhf(float x);
long double atanhl(long double x);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or
atanhf(), atanhl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTIONThe atanh() function calculates the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x; that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is x.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If x is +1 or -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically correct sign.
ERRORSSee 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 less than -1 or greater than +1
- errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Pole error: x is +1 or -1
- errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
BUGSFor a pole error, errno is set to EDOM; POSIX.1 says it should be set to ERANGE.
