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 ||
	   _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99
       acoshf(), acoshl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   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.
