COSH(P) 			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				  COSH(P)

NAME
       cosh, coshf, coshl - hyperbolic cosine functions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double cosh(double x);
       float coshf(float x);
       long double coshl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions shall compute the hyperbolic cosine of their argument x.

       An  application	wishing  to  check for error situations should set errno to zero and call
       feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions.  On return, if errno is  non-
       zero  or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero,
       an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the hyperbolic cosine of x.

       If the correct value would cause overflow, a range error shall occur and cosh(),  coshf(),
       and  coshl()  shall  return  the  value	of  the macro HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, and HUGE_VALL,
       respectively.

       If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.

       If x is +-0, the value 1.0 shall be returned.

       If x is +-Inf, +Inf shall be returned.

ERRORS
       These functions shall fail if:

       Range Error
	      The result would cause an overflow.

       If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be
       set  to	[ERANGE].  If  the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-
       zero, then the overflow floating-point exception shall be raised.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       On  error,  the	expressions  (math_errhandling	&  MATH_ERRNO)	and  (math_errhandling	&
       MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.

       For IEEE Std 754-1985 double, 710.5 < |x| implies that cosh( x) has overflowed.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
