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.

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate 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.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
