COSH(3) 			    Linux Programmer's Manual				  COSH(3)

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():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The cosh() function returns 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 x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

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

       If x is 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
	      errno  is  set  to  ERANGE.   An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is
	      raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also 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.
