NAME

cosh, coshf, coshl - hyperbolic cosine function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>double cosh(double x);
float coshf(float x);
long double coshl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

coshf(), coshl():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
    || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
 

DESCRIPTION

These functions return the hyperbolic cosine of x, which is defined mathematically as:
    cosh(x) = (exp(x) + exp(-x)) / 2
 

RETURN VALUE

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

If xis a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If xis +0 or -0, 1 is returned.

If xis positive infinity or negative infinity, positive infinity is returned.

If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return +HUGE_VAL, +HUGE_VALF, or +HUGE_VALL, respectively.  

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:

Range error: result overflow
errnois set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

The variant returning doublealso conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.  

BUGS

In glibc version 2.3.4 and earlier, an overflow floating-point (FE_OVERFLOW) exception is not raised when an overflow occurs.
