NAME

asinh, asinhf, asinhl - inverse hyperbolic sine function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double asinh(double x);

float asinhf(float x);
long double asinhl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

asinh(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99
asinhf(), asinhl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99  

DESCRIPTION

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

RETURN VALUE

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

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned.  

ERRORS

No errors occur.  

CONFORMING TO

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